B2500 HYUNDAI, KIA: AIRBAG WARNING LAMP
Description of DTC code B2500
The airbag is a safety system that consists of a bag, which is inflated when the car may have a collision. Therefore, it reduces the damage to the occupants because the bag is interposed between them and some parts of the vehicle.
This system has a warning light located in the instrument cluster, which turns on, blinks, and turns off when the airbag system is working properly. Otherwise, it remains on. Once the switch or key is placed in the on position, the SRSCM (Supplemental Restraint System Control Module) performs a diagnostic of the overall airbag system. This controller measures the voltage of the external terminal of the lamp. It checks that the lamp is performing correctly according to the signal sent by the SRSCM.
The B2500 OBDII diagnostic code is stored on the Hyundai and Kia vehicles when an erratic operation of the Airbag warning lamp is detected.
