2005 Kia Sedona • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 72,300 miles
Airbag light has come on in my 2005 Sedona. Actually has been on for quite some time, anyway, that has prohibited it from passing safety inspection. Was told it could be a sensor needs to be replaced. Diagnosis would cost $95, and replacement of said sensor might be around $250 to $300 dollars. Car has 73xxxx miles. It had another sensor issue a while back, having to do with ignition. Had that replaced. How common is it for all these sensors to start going out at this point in the car's life? Could it be something less expensive than a sensor replacement?
