Brought it to the dealer. They said it is not covered. They put it on a diagnostic test, and did not charge me, but said the problem is the drivers belt tensioner. It will cost me $450 just for them to start to look at it
Airbag light started coming on intermittently several times since owning the car and had it reset several times. Now it has come on and staying on. Read some prior complaints that it is costly to fix and I don't have $1,000 to spend only to have the problem re-occur. Purchased it used in 2007. Car only has approx 74,000 miles on it.

My air bag light is on for the second time. I'm told the passenger side seat belt needs to be replaced at a value of over $600.

My airbag light when on, so I took it into the dealer. He told me that I needed to have my driver's side seatbelt replaced to fix the problem. Unfortunately, I had that repair done by another Hyundai dealer in 2009 and 2013 already. It will be over $400 to have it replaced again, but I have a feeling that something else is really to blame. Very frustrated.
I bought a tuscon and the airbag light was on. The dealer said he would have it fixed. They tried clearing it. This didn't last. So they said it was the Drivers side airbag switch. They replaced it. 2 months later the light is back on. Now they are saying it is possibly the passenger side now which I'm sure I'll be charged for because it is now out of warrantee.

Air bag light remained on. Had computer cleared twice and only solved problem for a couple of weeks Then for the cost of over $1000 had battery and terminal ends and full battery/body harness replaced. It lasted for about three weeks and the light came back on. Now am told that to fix it we have to replace the entire electrical system for the air bags. At this point Hyundai does not want to take any responsibility for it's air bag electrical system self destructing at 79000 miles.
