Update - alternator only replaced...dealer said airbag wouldn't reset,
and that "the light would stay on."
Of course, my Mom gets in to drive, and the usual dash lights come on
for a moment, including the air bag light, which blinks a couple of
times quickly, and then goes off and stays off. Go figure!
She hasn't asked them about it (don't ask me why!)...and I don't know
if she will...she's not thrilled. I told her she should get it checked
out somewhere else, but she's a snowbird and is leaving this week (in
another car), so her Accent will stay in the garage for 5 months.
By the way, parts and labor for the alternator (including FL tax 6%) -
Thanks again to all - this will be my last post on the subject!
