Default 2006 Sonata drivers airbag light stays on

I have an 2006 Sonata. The red "airbag" light in the dash in front of the steering wheel (not the passenger light in the middle) will not turn off. It stays on consistently. Started about a month ago. Dealership wants $100 to diagnose. Wondering if this is a common problem as I have seen the issue in other forums. Any suggestions how I can fix? Thanks.

Gotta go to the dealership to get the computer read. How many miles are on the car? It might still be under warranty.

Default 2007 Sonata with same problem

My Sonata had the same problem. Moving both seats all the way forward then back resolved the problem for a time. Eventually the problem came back. The dealer replaced a sensor in the seats and the problem went away again. It has returned and I have an appointment next week with the dealer. My vehicle is under warranty.

Ok, it will not pass self test, and SRSCM has detected a fault in one or more of the many input/outputcircuits for the SRS system

It stays on consistently.
Yes, active fault, will find code(s) stored in SRSCM memory

Started about a month ago.
Just deciding to do something with it ??

Dealership wants $100 to diagnose.
Yep, gots to have the proper equipment to communicate with SRSCM, tech has to be trained in the safe procedures for system repair, remember, we playing with exploders here,, so shop needs to pay tech for his time to inpsect, his training, and make money to keep afloat.. you dont drive to work and work for free now,, do you ??

Wondering if this is a common problem as I have seen the issue in other forums.
SRS faults, common problem, only when module detects fault inthe system some where

Any suggestions how I can fix?
Pay the man, you do not have the software and ability to recover the codes. Until you know what circuit(s) the fault lays in, you just be guessing on some real expensive parts that can hurt you if you not know how to handle them... Buckles run sonthing like $190 ea,, seat belt retractors is $300 I think, passenger seat bottom is $1400, drive bag maybe $700, passenger bag $$$, bags in the front seats $$$...

$100 diag not looking so bad now...

Thanks.

Here's your $1400 seat bottom --

Have to post pics later, left the camera card at work again....
