#23 of 52 Air Bag Light Issue
Oct 10, 2007 (4:25 pm)
I took my car to the dealer because the air bag light was on. They took plenty of time trying to find the cause and finally say they would have me return it when the factory rep came in the next time. I have a great dealer but the factory rep has cancelled his last two visits. The passenger air bag light off light comes on and the air bag light on the insturment cluster comes on. However, they both come on and go off erratically at times without any reason.
Has anyone heard of this problem?

I would assume that the dealership checked the harness from the passenger seat.
As the passenger side airbag is deployed only when the passenger seat sensor indicates more than a set weight on the seat cushion, I would check to assure that the harness connector is secure.
If it is secure, the dealership could and should run a computer check on the system.

I have had the same problem with my 2006 Azera. The passenger side seat belt sensor is usually the problem. Requires the sensor to be replaced. The sensor will also cause the the drivers airbag light to stay on.
The other problem would be the seat bottom is bad, however you have to go through the whole list of codes before getting a new seat bottom.

Here's a TSB which doesn't actually mention the cause, which might be that under-the-hood switch which connects to the security system. When the hood is down, the switch is depressed and the system can be armed, but if the switch isn't properly depressed because the hood bumper isn't quite doing the job (or if the switch is bad-open)...
AZERA (ALL) & VERACRUZ (ALL)
INCREASED CURRENT DRAW ON AZERA AND
VERACRUZ VEHICLES WITH HOOD OPEN
This bulletin is provided for informational purposes on normal vehicle operation.
Opening the hood on Azera and Veracruz vehicles will ground the security systemís hood input switch. Grounding the hood input switch places the security system module (incorporated into the BCM) into a readiness standby mode. While in standby mode, the BCM consumes an increased amount of current that may discharge the vehicle battery if the hood is left open for several hours or overnight.
Displaying or Storing the Vehicle
To avoid discharging the battery while displaying the vehicle on a showroom floor (hood open), a self-regulating automatic trickle charge may be connected to the vehicle battery. If the vehicle is to be left parked with the hood open and accessory power is not required, the Power Connector on the interior fuse panel should be removed.
#27 of 52 intermittent starting problems with 2006 Azera
Apr 17, 2008 (8:06 pm)
Have a 2006 Azera with 37,000 miles on it. Every now and then it won't start. Acts like it isn't getting any spark--gas maybe both. It might start 20 times then it won't. I switch the key off and back on and it starts. Has anyone else had this problem or heard of it? Looking for a fix as it is quite annoying.

Yes, the same thing happens to me too. Quite annoying. Even if I take it to the dealer, since they would not be able to replicate the problem, how can I fix it?
Another annoying thing that happens is that sometimes when the car won't start, the Trip Meter zeroes out! Now, this car not starting problem occurs once in a while & the trip meter zeroing when it doesn't start happens even infrequently

I have the same problem. Sometimes it won't start at all until I flip the electric doorlocks back and forth a few times. I think it is related to the security system. The dealer has reprogrammed the computer and also suggested there is a problem with one of the keys. But nope, nothing has worked. It is really annoying. I thought I was the only one with this problem. Have you learned anything more since you placed this post?
#31 of 52 Questions about Add-A-Circuit
Nov 22, 2008 (1:31 pm)
Apologies from someone very unfamiliar with the "Add-A-Circuit" (mini size in my case - see http://www.littelfuse.com/data/en/Data_Sheets/FHM02FHA02.pdf - to be installed into a new Hyundai sedan) and how to install and use it.
1. Does the single red wire contain only the positive wire, or is somehow the ground wire also part of that red wire?
2. What kind of female connector is on the end of that red wire? And what kind of male connector is required to connect into it? What tools/supplies/directions would be needed for installing the right connectors needed?
I have a GPS unit and radar detector to hard wire and neither have the type of connector that would fit into the end of the red wire on the Add-A-Circuit.
Thanks in advance for any advice and assistance or even to be pointed in right direction for this information.

I have the same problem and the dealer can't figure it out. 2008 Azera with 33K miles. Every 20 or so tries it won't start, but turns over fine. Dealer says it the keys, but new keys didn't fix it. Has anyone had this figured out?
