How to stop airbag light?

Postby 98_Q45 » Sun Feb 03, 2019 11:25 am

Been going on for awhile. Looked up some articles where it says to turn key on and off, press the door switch a few times, etc. but nothing so far. Already had clockspring replaced, had it scanned with the OBD and seemed to point to the passenger seat airbag. I had pulled it from a salvage where it seemed to be in pretty good condition. Not sure why the airbag light is on, short from just taking the seat apart...

Anyone had this before? I also pulled the speedometer and was going to pull the bulb while changing the mileage bulb...but apparently there doesn’t seem to be a way to pull the bulb out.

There is usually a "without Consult" step by step in the FSM. If it works like it did with our 05 G35, it'll flash a code for the problem area as well. In my case it was a botched attempt at a safety recall by the dealership. 😑

Take it to a garage that's got a scanner that can read air bag codes. Most of the auto parts stores that do free scans don't have scanners that can read air bag system codes.

My airbag light has been on since I got the car. Took it to the garage I use and the scan said all the sensors were bad. The garage owner said in his experience, the main controller is the culprit. He said pull it and send it here for a cheap reset.
