airbag light reset fix
After installing a new stereo in my 04 Nissan Frontier, I made the mistake
of not disconnecting the battery before starting the project. I disconnected
the airbag switch and light then turned on the key to move the shifter, BIG
MISTAKE!!! After I was all done and admiring my handiwork I realized my
airbag light would not shut off. After searching the internet any trying
everything from disconnecting the battery overnight to turning the key on
and depressing the door light switch seven times, I finally came across a
post that did not work initially but with a little tweaking I got it to work
on mine. The post came from http://webpages.charter.net/tunfs/ in the how-to
and FAQ Forum (Excellent site and all credit is due them).
(2002 and UP)
1. Turn ignition switch "ON".
2. After "AIR BAG" warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, turn ignition
switch "OFF" within 1 second.
3. Wait more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 three times.
5. Turn ignition switch "ON".
SRS is now in Diagnosis mode.
6. "AIR BAG" warning lamp operates in Diagnosis mode
I tried this several times with no luck. I then got out a stopwatch to time
the 7 seconds, (any watch will do with a second hand), and in between
repeating it every time I removed the key from the ignition. This worked!!!
I hope this helps all of you that are frustrated with this same issue and
get the "It'll cost $75 to have us reset it" at the dealer.
Sorry for the long post but I am working on a celebration 6-pack. J
