    Pardon me for my ignorance, but I have 99 Sonata V6 with 72,000k and
    recently the light on my dash that says a door is opened has turned on
    but all doors and trunk are closed. Also, the air bag light has turned
    on about a day later. Any guesses?

    you might need a new air bag ecu for it if it is anything like my tibby. I
    went to advanced auto and no readings come up from it. The light has been
    on since i had my gauges changed out and tacho installed. Hyundai told me
    there is an ecu for the air bag, as for the door light, you might have
    bent wire or the sensor for the door is jacked up

    Sounds like two separate issues.

    For the door ajar lamp, you could have a broken or shorted door switch.

    For the air bag lamp, you should take the car to have the system checked.
    Also check with your dealer to see if there are any open recalls. There
    was a recall on your car to modify the side air bag wiring, which may not
    have been done yet.

    On my elantra the air bag light came on and they had to replace a sensor
    under the passenger seat. Even after replacing it it came on and i found
    out it was just not attached tight enough, i reattached it and it hasnt
    come on again. Something to check out maybe.

    I had a similar issue with my 2001 Elantra.
    Turns out the airbag wiring has a plug under the console.
    If you EVER spill a drink into the cup holder or around it, it will
    leak throug and get the connection wet. Increases the resistance and
    the computer thinks the airbag is defective.
    If you are able, pull the console and wrap the plug with waterproof
    tape,(after you dry the plug and clean it) The real rubber kind not
    the regular electrical tape.
    Once it's dried out you shouldn't have the problem again.
