In 2010 my airbag light came on in my 2005 Hyundai Sante Fe, Hyundai diagnosed the driver side deat belt receiver, i had a private mechanic fix the problem, cost 1/2 of the amount Hyundai quoted me. Now, 2014 airbag light is on, my private mechanic alerted me that this time it is the passenger seat belt receiver. i called Hyundai corporate, i was told that there are NO RECALLS for this item and there was nothing they could do for me. I have to get it fixed, it is a safty hazard.....when the airbag light is on, there is a chance the airbag will not deploy in an accident. I think this is a faulty part and Hyundai should either recall for this issue or agree to fix it since it is a safety issue. MARY ANN PORCO

Air bag light on all the time.
airbag light came on and stays on.
I have a 2006 Santa Fe. The air bag light goes on and off while driving. This has just started. I think it should be Hyundai's responsibility to fix the problem. ESPECIALLY when it is a serious safety issue.
