Hello, did they tell you it was the occupancy sensor?

Expert:  Gary replied 2 months ago.

Hello there,

If they are saying the passenger presence sensor is the cause, then $1500 sounds a bit high.

The seat needs to be remove from the car, lower seat trim cushion cover removed, to allow sensor replacement.

Have you had a quote from a Hyundai dealer?
