Hyundai issued a recall on the airbag computer; it needs to be reprogrammed to prevent the airbags from deploying incorrectly during an accident when a child car seat has been placed in the passenger front seat.

    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.

    Not sure of exact mileage but that is a good estimate. Came on and then went off. When it came on again it stayed on (that was a few years ago).
