Hi all,

Recently my kia had an airbag light come on. Went to a mechanic and they did a diagnostic which returned B1322 - Recommended me to ' Replace ECU System Called Weight Classification System Sensor' . They said dealership would charge around $2000 for this (which I confirmed) and they recommended going to junkyards and finding a similar kia to pull that part (its under the seat). They would then swap it into my kia.

However I've had no luck finding any junkyards (in GTA, Ontario) with a Kia model that has a matching part. Even 2011 non-Koup's don't have matching parts for ECU system (I called a kia dealer and asked to compare this part against my kia and the junyard kia). Finding an extra 2011 Forte Koup in my area seems very unlikely....

Anyone have any suggestions? Tried searching online for this part but I wasn't having much success. I did see this thread - SRS AIRBAG LIGHT - Solution - but i'm not technical enough to really test this stuff out.

Thanks

PM @cobra259 - he can confirm the part number for the sensor and the best price.

If you're not technical then best you take it to an Auto-Elec specialist shop, if you say the Kia dealership is trying to rip you off.

The sensor your looking for is part on the pass lower seat. That's why its so expensive. Try usedparts.com

Ah, I see thanks. Do you happen to know the part name or number? Is it just a 'Weight Classification System Sensor'? I checked usedparts.com but the site doesnt seem to work at all for me...

What you need is a passenger lower seat assy. The sensor is part of the seat. I'm sorry, I gave you the wrong web site, it's called carpart.com. Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Thanks very much for the info. I didn't see anything close to passenger lower seat assembly in that sites dropdown, but chose 'Front Seat' and put the extra info in comments. Site has a great list of Ontario parts suppliers, I'll try to contact them all. Thanks!
