2013 Nissan Sentra Recalls

Passenger Front Air Bag Does Not Deploy In An Accident

The occupant classification system may malfunction, resulting in the front passenger air bag not deploying when needed in an accident. Dealers will update the system software free of charge to resolve the concern.

Passenger Airbag

The airbag system uses a sensor in the front passenger seat to detect if the seat is occupied by an adult. The affected vehicles are being recalled because this sensor, part of the occupant classification system (OCS), may incorrectly identify the passenger seat as empty when it is actually occupied by an adult. When the passenger seat is determined to be empty, the passenger airbag is disabled. Dealers will update the OCS software free of charge to correct this concern.

Passenger Front Air Bag May Shut Off Unintentionally

The occupant detection system may unintentionally shut down the passenger front air bag so that it will not deploy in an accident. Dealers will inspect the sensors of the occupant detection system and replace them as necessary free of charge to resolve the problem.
