Hyundai Tech "Question about 2006 Tiburon vs 2004 Elantra"

Discussion in 'Hyundai Coupe / Tiburon' started by Timothy A. Roy, Sep 23, 2005.

  1. Does the 2006 Tiburon use the exact same passenger OCS airbag system as the
    2004/2005 Elantra? If not has anyone reported any issues with the car other
    then the recall on the steering colum I saw on NHTSA?

    I guarantee it's not exactly the same. But realistically, it probably
    operates very similarly.

    We've had some Elantra customers complain that the "Passenger Air Bag Off"
    telltale on the dash won't turn off, even when a passenger is in the seat.
    We've never been able to duplicate one of these conditions and no customer
    has ever been able to show us the condition occurring, to my knowledge.

    The GT suspension on the Tiburon seems to have issues with pounding the
    bushings to the point they wear and make noise over washboard type
    pavement. Other than that, I can't think of anything off the top of my
    head that's specific to this car.

  3. Does the 2006 tiburon use the OCS to detect an adult and deploy the airbag
    accordingly? Does it have the passenger airbag light also?

    Or is there another sistem that outright deploy the airbags if there is a
    collision and the seatbelts are engageded?

    There's no question it monitors whether the seat belt is buckled. I
    haven't seen a 2006 in person. I assumed by your question previously it
    had some sort of occupant classification system, but I don't know that it
    does. The air bag system will not conclude someone isn't in the seat just
    because someone isn't buckled. It does use that information in determining
    whether to deploy the air bag. In fact, it's more likely it will deploy
    the air bag if the belt is unbuckled. I recently worked on a Tiburon that
    (if I recall correctly) fired the driver bag but not the passenger because
    the passenger seat belt was buckled and the driver seat belt was
    unbuckled, so the system felt it necessary to deploy the air bag to
    protect an unbelted driver. If you want to know, check out a car in
    person. If it has the passenger air bag telltale, it definitely has an
    occupant classification system.

  6. There's no need to be rude. I asked an honest question about a car with
    which I wanted more information. All the same thanks hijacking the thread
    with a troll remark.

  7. Perhaps I mistook you for a jerk that pops up here periodically to
    promote his class-action lawsuit site. If that's not you, I apologize.
