Question.... is your AIRBAG DEACTIVATED light staying on all the time now EVEN when an adult sized person is sitting in the seat?
I haven't had my recall reprogramming done yet, but I'm skeptical to have it done since my light (and thus the activation mode) seems to work correctly.
My (March-built 2004) 2004.5's AT tranny has had absolutely NO problems to date (knock on wood), and I've experienced no pinging.
I wonder what the devil KIA did to screw things up in the 2005 model year, and why? Were they trying to get better MPG? Better emissions?
