Airbag sensor going off

Postby brett83501 » Mon Jul 06, 2015 6:11 pm

My 2005 Nissan Titan SE has just over 46,000 miles on it. Almost 3 months ago or right when I hit 45,000 miles my airbag sensor started blinking. I figured it was just one of those things cars put on them so you have to take them into the dealership to get the reset. I found in the forum how to reset it and it worked. Well then about a week later it went off again and reset it again, and now it's been going off it seems like about once a week and I reset it and it lasts a week. Now with the airbag recalls I'm wondering if it could be a bigger issue. According to the list my year of Titan wasn't part of the recall but other 2005 Nissan's were just not the Titan which seemed suspicious to me whey did they not recall that since I'm sure the same airbags were used. Anyway any tips of how to rest it so it' won't keep going off every week?

I don't think the recall units would have a failure that causes the light to flash... it's more about what happens as they're detonated.

Your Titan should be able to flash an error code to tell you more about what fault is causing the light to come on. Check out your truck's factory service manual at http://www.nissanservicemanual.com. On our G35, a moron technician at the dealership left the wiring harness dangling under the driver's seat, and it was getting pulled when the seat moved. I fixed it with some cable ties, along with some other stupid stuff he did under there.
