2003 Hyundai Sonata and Terror

Well, it happened.  Everything on the car passed except one of the most awful, expensive things.  The airbag light isn't working properly.  That's a hundred dollar diagnostic (we have that--we've actually saved up 800 bucks just in case the car needed work), and possibly up to $1,600 for repair.  That's not possible for us.  There is absolutely no way.  We could save that up in a couple of months, but we don't have a couple of months, we have two weeks.  No rich relatives, no possibility of taking out a short-term loan (other than a payday loan, and that's insane). 

So we may be totally screwed.

We already went out and hubby followed the mechanics instructions to disconnect and reconnect all the wires under the front seats, but that didn't fix it.

Already cried, will likely cry again.  Taking the car back down to have them run the diagnostic in a few minutes.  Oh, please!  Cross your fingers, huh?  I have no idea what we're going to do if this goes worst case scenario on us.  Damn!

Update:  Took the car back for the diagnostic, they said their equipment can't scan our particular car.  Hubby's on the phone with the dealership, and that's almost always disastrously expensive.  More as we know.
