Francisco bought a 2014 Hyundai Sonata GLS off a car auction copart.com The Hyundai was involved in an accident that resulted in the insurance to write it off as totaled and then sold on this auction.
During the crash, which appeared to be a front end collision, both of the front airbags deployed. The driver’s side and the passenger side. Simultaneously with the airbags deploying, both of the front seat belts fired and locked up as well. The seat belts, known as the pretensioner, are equipped with a gas charge that is responsible for going off during a crash.
Francisco replaced both of the front airbags that he purchased at the Hyundai dealer. The Hyundai did, however, have an airbag light due to crash data being stored in the SRS computer.
This occurs at every crash event. Once a vehicle is involved in a crash, the airbag light will remain on until it is scanned with an OBD Airbag scanner, the codes are obtained, all of the issues are addressed, and then the module is flashed. Flashing the module is a procedure where the chip is accessed and programmed to its original factory condition. The chip is known as the EEPROM.
Francisco wasn’t fully familiar with the process and got a quote from an airbag specialist that came out and checked out the vehicle. The quote he received was around $450. Outraged by this, Francisco turned to his friend online: Google. He searched for ways to clear the airbag light and stumbled across our website. We offered SRS Airbag Module Reset services at $50. This attracted Francisco, and he gave our shop a call.
Safety Restore boasts experienced programming skills that allow us to wipe all post-factory readings and restate the module to its original, pre-wreck condition.
