J10 (2007) Airbag blinking

Post by dakiR6 » Sun Oct 04, 2020 9:26 am

Hello everyone.
Recently i noticed red Airbag warning blinking on dashboard. It never happened before,but it started right after i moved back driver seat, so i thought it might be connected with some kind of sensors inside the seat. Next thing ive done was checking all wires and connectors under the seat, but it seems that everything was still connected properly, no broken wires,terminals,connectors, no disconnected connectors etc.
Is there anything else i could do myself at home or the only way is to drive to the electrician for diagnostics.
Thanks a lot for any kind of further advise ;)

Think thats all you can do. Testing the SRS system electrically could cause air bag release.This from Nissan diagnostics:

WARNING:
• To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could increase the risk of personal injury or death in the event of a collision which would result in air bag inflation, all maintenance must be performed by an authorized NISSAN/INFINITI dealer.
• Improper maintenance, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, can lead to personal injury caused by unintentional activation of the system. For removal of Spiral Cable and Air Bag Module, see the SRC section.
• Do not use electrical test equipment on any circuit related to the SRS

To be honest airbags have a life too and yours is well over the ten years that Skoda ones are expected to last. Does anyone know if Nissan put a time limit on airbags?

EDIT - ignore that - I've just found this:

"Don’t Worry

Generally speaking, your airbag won’t wear out or require replacement, no matter how long you own the vehicle. While many automakers once placed labels in vehicles insisting airbags had to be replaced after 15 (or even 10) years, that’s no longer the case. Today’s models are designed for the airbag to last the life of the vehicle, much like other important parts, such as large powertrain components, door latches and other items not expected to have expiration dates.

DakiR6, found these comments for Airbag Flashing Light and then this method to cure it from a QQ J10 in 2010, might be worth a try - Dave 😏
