The airbag light just came on and won't go off. Help!

I think the question covers this pretty well. The airbag light came on and occasionally goes off for a second or two, but then comes on again. I haven't seen a reason it might go off. Is there an easy fix for this and what does it mean?

I have the same pronlem


Hi, I am not expert but I would like you to suggest something. f you car model is in the recall list try calling the car show room or the company service center. If not The airbag light problem I think you might have to go to the service center and get it fixed and I am guessing it should be just a small software error (but might not be cheap).


There can be fault in the wiring. Either ways if your car is still in warranty you may get it fixed.

You can try to check of there is an error in the system by using OBD - II Bluetooth dongle but you still have to go to the service center to fix that error.

Every time you try to start the car please wait till all the lights except for the parking (!) and battery are gone and the start the car. This way there will be less chances that the on board computer in the car has no error or system failures.



Is any recall for a Kia Sorento 2010 static airbag light applicable to Kia’s sold in UK, or only USA. My Kia Dealership is not ‘aware’ of it>


I've tried to do an internet search on the information given above re 2010 Kia Sorento recall on airbag light switches but cannot find it. Are such recalls published in one data set for all countries?

Korean automakers Hyundai and Kia are recalling almost 1.9 million vehicles to fix problems with air bags and brake light switches. The switch recall covers almost 1.7 million vehicles — most of the automakers' model lineups from the 2007 through 2011 model years. A faulty switch can stop the brake lights from illuminating when drivers press on the pedal, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. Hyundai models affected by the brake light switch recall include the 2007 to 2009 Accent and Tucson, the 2007 to 2010 Elantra, the 2011 Sonata, the 2007 to 2011 Santa Fe, the 2008 to 2009 Veracruz and the 2010 to 2011 Genesis Coupe. Kia models include the 2007 to 2010 Rondo and Sportage, the 2011 Optima, the 2007 to 2011 Sorento, the 2010 to 2011 Soul and the 2007 Sedona. Hyundai and Kia will notify owners and will replace the switches free of charge.

do an internet search for your model and recall. If it's there, take it to a dealership and request the repair be done.

Hi @plm ,

Depending on your location of course, there doesn’t seem to be a recall for airbag defects on a 2010 Kia Sorrento.

Here are the recalls for the UK for the vehicle and year

For the USA you need to enter the VIN number to find out.

Here is the only recall for Australia for that year model.

Just search for recalls (insert country) to find information applicable to your location.

There is also this Global list. The Kia Sorrento does get a mention, but not for that year and none are related to airbags

Air bags can be dangerous to work on as they have to be rendered safe beforehand. You don’t want them deploying whilst you’re trying to find out what the problem is. It may be wiser to let a dealer find and fix the problem.
