I pulled the yellow connector under the driver seat and sprayed with contact cleaner and reconnected.
It was a BIG pain, but I pulled the air bag control module from deep under the center console, pulled the main connector and sprayed both halves with contact cleaner and reconnected/installed.

Light is still on on dash. Our XG350 was vandalized a few years back where they poured margarita mixer all over the dash, so many things got gummed up. I have pulled parts out to 'ungum' over time.

I have read there is (or was) likely a short that caused the computer to turn on the light and that the system does not turn it off if an error (short) goes away. I have an aftermarket (Toptak TP-110CAN) code scanner. It does not read an error and, of course does not clear an error it cannot read. I may have to take it to a Hyundai dealer and pay ≈$60 for them to read and clear any error code that appears. Obviously, if a short (or whatever) is still present, the light would come back on and stay on.

I am just wondering IF they are able to clear the error AND THE LIGHT STAYS OFF, if I could feel confident that my air bags would work when needed.

Ok, so sthe srs light is illuminated... do we know what the stored DTC(s) are ??

SRS light will illuminate when it (SRSCM circuitry) detects an open or short in any 1 or more of the various input/output circiuts of the SRS system..

Wanna repair it the first time,,,, scan it and come back with the codes found in the SRSCM memory.. I already have an idea what code(s) you have, so let me/us know what you have to work with.

I have not had a chance to get it to a dealer to read the codes yet. I'll report back when I do that. What are the chances that code(s) in system now, will stay away after 'cleared' by dealer. I am hoping that event(s) no longer present triggered the fault codes.
1) If my wishful thinking comes true, how safe would I be in assuming my air bags (assuming no codes return) would be functional.
2) OTH, if faults that triggered codes /dash light, are no longer present, would the system still work even though (old) codes were showing on the reader (and in the car's system)?

Only if actual fault has been repaired and SRSCM finds no fault... it is always checking itself
I am hoping that event(s) no longer present triggered the fault codes.

If the light goes out after 6 second of key-on and stay out, system pass self test... remember SRS light is 1 test cycle from fault occur,,, and system is constant testing itself.

2) OTH, if faults that triggered codes /dash light, are no longer present, would the system still work even though (old) codes were showing on the reader (and in the car's system)?
Nobody seems to know that answer, and nobody will tell... If flagged "H" (history) and light is off, unknown if system will deploy squibs as triggered.
