Kia Sorento Airbag Warning Light May Illuminate Erroneously

(72 reports)

The airbag warning light may illuminate erroneously.  This can be caused by an internal defect in the control module. Replacement of the airbag control module with a revised part may be necessary to correct this concern.

Airbag light just started coming on. Dealer ship says that diagnostics shows code B1764 and B1767 are the issue in the passenger cushion seat and it will cost roughly 2,000 to fix. Has anyone else replace the cushion but the issue still occurs. Just want to make sure I am not spending too much money on this if there is a cheaper fix. -
