    About a yr after we got our car(bought it new)The air bag light kept coming
    on.I take it in when it comes on,the dealer fixes it,then it will come back
    on a few mos.later.The last time I took it in they said they just lubed up
    the connecter under the passenger seat again.The first time they said it
    had corrosion on the connecter. Are they actually fixing the right

    It's hard to judge the repair without having the trouble code, but I've had
    improve the contact in the connectors for the seat air bags on several
    cars. It's important that the wiring be held relatively still and the
    connector be clipped into the connector holder when this is done. Also,
    try not to keep items under your front seats that could contact the seat
    bottoms. These can contact the connector and jostle it enough to make a
    change in the contact resistance. The air bag system is very sensitive to
    this and, while I don't think it should cause the lamp to come on, it can't
    hurt to do it.

    My light cme on when I removed the fuse thinking that I might be able to
    reset a chck engine light problem upon which the air bag light also came on.
    Thus, the problem might also exist at the fuse end if that has corrosion or
    a loose contact.

    Anytime the lamp comes on, there should be one of the following
    1. Trouble code stored in module.
    2. No power to module or module unplugged.

    If you have a trouble code, you already know what type of problem exists
    (low voltage, deployment, internal module failure, excessive resistance on
    a particular circuit, etc.).

    The battery is failing in my XG350L with 25000 miles. Very slow
    cranking when starting. Volts look good but I think it would fail a
    load test. Never left any lights on or had a problem until just
    recently. Hyundai pro-rates the battery after the 2 year free
    replacment period. Any idea (HYUNDAITECH) what it will cost if I have
    Hyundai replace it? I have read on here that the Hyundai batteries are
    complete crap so if they are charging anything excessive I will buy my
    own and install it. The OEM battery 600 CCA is kind of low for Chicago
    winters anyway. I was looking at an Interstate 800 CCA made
    specifically for the reverse terminal foreign batteries like Hyundai

    Recommendations? Thoughts?

    Unless the full and complete replacement of your battery is covered 100% by
    Hyundai, go by a battery and do it your self.
    Whatever Hyundai throws in there won't last much past 3 yrs, so do NOT pay
    for it.
