 Description of the problemI drove my 2009 hyundai elantra gls (5 speed manual transmission) into my friend's driveway, came to a complete stop, after being stopped for apprixmatley 30 seconds i pulled the car out of gear, pulled up the hand brake, and turned off the car with the key. As i turned off the car/pulled out the key, the passanger and driver side airbags deployed while my passenger and i were sitting in the front seats. No severe injuries were sustained by my passenger or me. However, days later the loud explosion of the air bag deployment has left a ringing in our ears. It is important to understand that there was no front collision or abrupt stop that should have caused a deployment. The vehicle was at a stable zero speed. Also, i am the origional owner of the vehicle and the vehicle has never been involved in an accident or had the air bags deploy previously. The dealership has reported to me that the vehicle computer codes identified that the vehicle had a front collision, as well as a passenger air bag failure. The service rep agreed with me that there was clearly no impact and agreed with me that the front collision was some sort of false signal. I have filed a report with hyundai and it is under investigation, but i want to make sure that this is publically recorded due to the danger of the incident. *tt
