its a latching fault which needs to be reset on the computer, most garages will be able to read the code and reset or tell you what's wrong, the airing light serves as a multi purpose fault light, if you don't know why it came on you need to get it read rather than just disabling the light

WTF!!

The airbag warning light is a warning light that comes on when there is a fault with the SRS (Airbag system), not a multi purpose warning light.
There are loads of reasons why this light would be on (all SRS related).
You will find that only a Hyundai specific scan tool, or flashing the CM (which I strongly advize against) will display the code/s as:
1. The car is pre EOBD.
2. The SRS is not covered under EOBD.
Diabling this light would render it illegal under the Consrtuctions and Use Regulations (1986) and should cause it to fail an MOT.

Hope this helps.

There are high and low voltage airbag codes (amongst the hundreds of other ones) so I'll let you off.
I was in a really bad mood earlier too, so sorry for going off on one.

dont worry about it, I expect you to correct me when I talk crap as much as anyone else ;)

you don't become a 5* expert by not being able to correct my guesswork.
