Thanks for the pics SBR. Just curious how the OCS mat is supposed to work and what the failure mechanism is?

If that's it I am just curious what purpose it serves since I thought the issue was small children/infants sitting in the front seat and having the airbag deploy. We have none of those (small children/infant) in our family so to spend $900 (assuming that was it) is a non-starter. And especially armed with this information it sounds like a design defect from the start, maybe warrants a good discussion with the Hyundai zone rep.

Have the same stupid passenger seat issue on my 06 LX. Quoted like $1500 or something ridiculous! We just ignore the light, but I may consider pulling the bulb sometime in the future. We have 90,000 miles on ours and were second owners so it would be our dime... which it won't be. Grrr! Problem started around 83,000 I think.

Good luck with yours! Between the insanely expensive seat cushion issue and the slowest gear hunting of an automatic that I've ever experienced, I'm not a loyal hyundai enthusiast anymore.

It took me longer to unbolt the seat and play with the wires then it did to take out the light bulb I had the light out and everything reconnected in about 15 min

This is exactly what I'm thinking. I want to simply reconnect the stupid light to another light. You can't even get an inspection in VA with an airbag light on, so on a car that is virtually perfect, I have to pay $1300 to fix a feature I don't even use just to get an inspection.

I think Hyundai should pay for this for every car made during that year. My Sonata falls in the recall years, but they won't pay for it because my VIN isn't included in the recall. Bunch of crap if you ask me.

Will be removing the cluster later this evening....

my Nissan Frontier had that issue when you messed with the electrical system without first removing the neg lead from the battery. The fix was to turn the key off and on 5 times.

my Snap-on scanner reads the airbag codes, and gives information on the DTC's. It can also be used to reset the system. My problem is with the drivers seat belt. Resistance High.

Re-read the description slowly and carefully.. is it "belt pre-tension",,, or "buckle pre-tension",, or "buckle switch".....

Be nicer if you post the code as recovered from scan... has more value.

I have popped the exploders on some (7) buckle pre-tensioner here in the last couple days.. do that before disposal, as you not supposed to dispose of SRS parts with live exploders intact..

Gots 4 or 5 DAB modules here, but hate to waste those... thems some big $$$$$ items

i have the airbag light on (not pass side) again, and this time the dealer is saying it's because the driver's side seat belt buckle is bad. he also is telling us that hyundai won't cover it under my 10/100 extended service warranty, car has around 78K. the first time it happened was when the crankshaft pulley came apart and they said it was due to the alternator not putting out full power when the belt slipped. next time i think it was the brake pedal switch. i'll be stopping in to see them on monday...
