Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

The mechanic borrowed an updated scanner and he was able to turn it off. He said the borrowed scanner said it was on due to an old code for a crash sensor communication. The car hasn’t been hit in years. Anyway, it came back on the very next day or 3rd key cycle. How can I fix this. He said only the dealers scanner can go deeper into tracking it down and that is is beyond his capabilities (he is a well respected local mechanic- not a Nissan tech). Any thoughts? That blinking light is annoying.

If you have the airbag light, it will show steady for a few seconds (the manual says 7 secs) after you turn the key from off to on (but not start) and then start to flash. Here is how to reset it:

1. Turn the key from off to on.

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

If it does not work the first time, just repeat the steps again
