Q60 Convertible Airbag Blinking Light - Dealer Quote is 7K+

Postby Marathon239 » Tue Sep 29, 2020 2:26 pm

I have a 2014 Q60 Convertible IPL. Last week the passenger airbag light starting blinking. I tried the common fix noted many times on the boards (using the start button to reset 3-4 times) but it didn't work. So I brought it to the dealer and they said a new part needs to be ordered and the cost will be over 7K. Is this possible? Their explanation was that everything is controlled by a part in the passenger seat, and that part needs to be fully replaced. Is this really possible? TIA

Airbag components, unfortunately, are only covered under the original 3yr / 36k mile warranty.

Find out the part number, and post it up. We may have a source that cost less.

I'd be looking at car-part.com to find one in a wrecking yard. Do a nationwide search - the cost of shipping would be miniscule compared to what they're asking - that's nuts.

This was the written description - "Passenger seat adjuster assay in inoperable internal failure; must order part".

But since the seat is fully functional, Is purchasing this $7,500 part really the only solution?
Thanks!

I'd ask them for clarification. You can be very blunt with them: What part is inoperable on my car, and what is the Nissan part number of that part that you wish me to spend $7500 to replace.

If they won't answer you, time to speak to the service manager.

If the "passenger seat adjuster assembly" is functioning, they need to tell you specifically which part they believe to be nonfunctional.

Let us know what you learn!
