Depends how many, and which, components were damaged. Also on how much labor is involved to R&R them.

It was a hit directly on passenger front tire. Do you have an estimate of what I’m looking at? Everything b is already repaired it’s just that warning light that is on. Kia wants to charge me $150 just to tell me the light is on from the collision. Won’t give me an estimate on any repairs

Sorry I wasn't clear before. The only way to estimate cost is to examine the car in person and test the system(s). Anyone would have to do that to give you a repair estimate.

I’m sorry I have another question.. after a hit to the front of the car the BSD can be affected? From what I’m reading the senors are located on the rear bumper there was no damage there.

Hmm. Maybe someone else will jump in.

Makes sense that BSD sensors are in rear bumper. I don't know where the wiring is for any system. Does your car have an indicator in the passenger-side mirror, and is it working properly? Maybe the wiring to that indicator could have been damaged?

Totally unrelated to question ..... Assuming it was not your fault you should pursue a Diminished Value Claim against the other driver's Insurance Company.
Your FUTURE Trade-in Value will be Reduced from being Hit, so this compensates (some/all) for that.
I got about $4000 from being hit in the same spot and this Presumes Your State allows such claims.
The Link below is offered JUST to get you started IF you pursue this; Search for others as desired.
He prepared a professional looking Report detailing interviews with 5 Dealers and their After-Hit Reduced Appraisal of your car per the Repair List you'd provide.
