 Description of the problemSince purchasing the car, the air bag light remained on after starting approx. 12 times in 8 months. To shut the warning light off i had to shut car off & restart to correct. Dealer first said due to way wife was sitting, next time they mentioned tsb bulletin, 3rd time they mentioned corrected tsb & replaced sensors, 4th time, engineer told them about a fix replaced modules, 5th time engineer showed them fix on an earlier car, 6th time field engineer said w/o confirmation nothing can be done. Dealer stated that each time computer showed no problem. No explanation other than check owner's manual and light will go on intermittently. When the light stayed on, my wife shifted her body as well as raised her body and landed on seats, then got out of car and jumped into car -light stayed on until i shut off car and restarted. I believe the dealer tried his best and has closely worked with me. It's not the dealers fault but nissan's allowing this to happen. I contacted the nissan regional people and they were very nice but they said there was nothing that could be done without confirmation. Nor would put in writing that the airbag would work if car was in an accident. What they did say was that as of the time of the dealers check, the airbag was operational. I was also reminded that the airbag was a secondary restraint system. Gee, i thought it was an integral part of the car's safety equipment. When i asked if a design flow, i did not get an answer. Why does nissan have this problem and not any other manufacturer? Do earlier nissans have the same problem?
