Hi, some months ago airbag light went on. I carried my car to Hyundai and they reset the light and told me that the problem was probably the clock spring. But I tested the clock spring and it was ok and I tested the airbag device and was ok too. Now light is on again. I have tied a 2 ohm resistor between wires before the clock spring but light remains on.

Question: I have a cheap chinesse ELM327 OBD2 reader. Anybody knows any software valid for this reader and able for reseting airbag light?

or anybody knows command to type directly to the serial port for doing the work?

you can't reset the air bag light on an non compliant OBD scanner, basically the hyundai scanner is the only way to re-set the light (and extract the proper fault code) there are some high end scanners around that will do the job if you can find a workshop that's got one

I have a similar problem on a 2006 Sonata. What is the clockspring you are referring to?

Toyota calls it a "spiral cable".. it is a ribbon wire on spool that allows connection between fixed steering column and rotating steering wheel so the DAB can stay connected to SRSCM and be fired no matter where steering wheel is turned.

Scan the thing, and recover the code(s).. then proceed from there (preferably by a tech trained in proper SRS testing/service procedures)

I had the same issue on a jeep.

I just replaced the clockspring (with battery out) and all was well after reassembly.

In Accent this is impossible. If SRS module detects more than five faults, airbag light goes on and NEVER goes off . It is a very good bussiness for Hyundai. In Spain, if light is on you can't use your car.

When you start engine all bulbs are on (initial lamp test). If any bulb is off then this bulb is burn.


I keep trying to solve my problem. I have dissambled my chinesse "ELM327 interface". Of course, no ELM chip inside; only a mcu PIC. I have desoldered wire to pin 2 (K-LINE) OBD conector and solder it to pin 13 (airbag line). Now I am sure I can talk to SRS unit but I don't know the protocol for understand between us.
