My airbag light came on for my 2010 hyundai elantra. My mother (who owns the same car) had the same issue and paid over $200 for it to be fixed. I am starting to notice many elantras having this problem. What should I do? My car is under a 200k warrantee.
Airbag light came on. Was told it was the sensor in the passenger side seat. Dealership wanted $1300 to replace the seat.

The airbag light is on. The check engine light is also on. The power window on the driver's side is the only one that will work. None of the other ones will go either up or down.

I also had the airbag light on for quite some time. took my 98 elantra in to dealer for other repairs and they fixed the airbag issue no question asked by me. They did't even mention it too me. They just took care of the problem with the air bag system. I read there was an issue with a air bag control module in the ceneter console/shifter area known to go bad. Car was way out of warranty. Now, if I can just get CEL code P0442(evap system small leak detected) fixed I can pass inspection again.
