Airbag Warning Light May Illuminate Erroneously on Kia Sorento

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.

Air bag light is on ... No accident happened

Airbag light has been on for several years now. Not sure of exact milage when happened but was in the 60,000 range. Refuse to pay for repair on faulty manufacturing when it was supposed to be warranted. They always find a loop-hole so we have to pay.
Light will not go off. This problem needs to be fixed by Kia.

Well as you see I posted above that my air bag light came on right after my warranty! my Sorrento has never given me a problem, and now I only have one more year left of payments, yet because of this airbag light problem and they wanted to charge me 500 dollars, I will not buy another Kia, I don't feel safe and now have to wonder if that air bag will work or not. The reason I bought the Kia Sorento in 2011, was it had good safety ratings, they didn't tell you the air bag will only last 3 years!

The airbag warning light may illuminate erroneously. Kia Service said that replacement of the airbag control module needed to be done but I can not afford! Parts and service for Kia is outrageous!

It hasn't been fixed, light for airbag just stays on. Have heard others say it costs 500...I do not have it to spend

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.
