 Description of the problem1. I purchased a new 2013 nissan altima sl in april 2013. After couple of weeks i started noticing passenger air bag off light is always on, whether a passenger sits in passenger seat or not. I went to dealer, they told that there is a recall on passenger airbag sensor and they were waiting for new sensors. After couple of months they received new sensors and they installed it in my car. 2. After installing new sensor i started noticing issues with airbag again. My wife weighs about 110lbs-115lbs, i see 'passenger airbag off' light is on in following scenarios with my wife in passenger seat with seat belt fastened. A. After starting the car 'passenger airbag off' light supposed to on for 7 seconds then go off. But it stays on for a lot more time than that (more than 15 minutes) some times it goes off after 15 min/ 30 min, some times it is always on. This doesn't happen always but happens almost 2-3 times out of 10. If i restart car it works normal again. This happened driving in various speeds from 0 -70 mile/ hour. B. When driving, all of a sudden 'passenger airbag off' light comes on stays on for a while. Sometimes it goes off after 15 minutes approximately, some times it stayed on for more than 30 minutes. This happens in very random manner and doesn't always happen. This happened driving in various speeds from 0 -70 mile/ hour with my wife in passenger seat with seat belt fastened. I have took my vehicle to dealer 2 times, they checked but said they couldn't find anything wrong. Performed 'passenger weight sensor' reset 2 times suggesting it may fix the problem. But it didn't help. I am still driving my car with weird bugs like this. So in case of accident passenger airbag may not deploy when required, please take an action on nissan to fix this serious safety issue.
