Airbag light came on and won't go off.
Airbag light on at all times.
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.

air bag light comes off an on all the time been happening now for the past couple of years !
Air bag light is always 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.
I purchased my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe in 2012-2013. Te air bag light has been on since I purchased it (used).
