I have no light for the airbags (SRS) system. There was an accident and the airbags and control module were replaced but there never has been a light on for the airbags. What could cause this?
Do you
have the same problem?

I have seen this on a Hyundai Sonata and a Kia Optima. Both of them had been wrecked and supposedly fixed prior to my customers' purchase. In both instances, the airbag light never turned on during ignition ON. What I found out that the bulb for the system has been "conveniently" pulled out from the gauge cluster. And mind you, that these cars came from two different well-known local dealerships.

For the most parts, when an accident happens, the shop will replace the airbags and the control modules. But many times that I have seen that the shop fails to replace the airbag sensors.

In your case, I would remove the gauge cluster and physically check the light bulb. If you can find out what type of damage was done from the accident, you can try to figure out which airbag was replaced so you can check if the sensor has been replaced as well.

We checked bulb and switched it around with one that we knew worked and still the airbag light doesn't come on. I called the dealer and they said that the sensors are in the control module which we already replaced. Is there a relay for the airbags? I already replaced the fuse I believe it was #12 under the dash with a good fuse and still no light.

There is no relay, but you need to check fuse #10, rather than #12.

Fuse #12 said on the fuse cover that it was for the airbags. I checked fuse #10 which says it is for the cluster. They are both good. Still no light, though.

Both fuses #10 and 12 control the SRS system.

The only to diagnose the problem, though unfortunately by using scan tool capable SRS operation.
