RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
The seat belts in the car have sensors that measure belt tension. These sensors are plugged into the wiring of the restraint system. Some wiring connectors where the wiring plugs into the sensor may have been damaged when the vehicle was built. This could cause the air bag light to come on, and may make the restraint system inoperative in an accident.
What Should You Do?
We at RepairPal have designated this a high priority recall. If the air bag system is inoperative, serious injury may occur in an accident. Please contact your Nissan dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
The air bag light may come on due to a damaged seat belt tension sensor wiring connector. This would turn on the air bag warning light, and would prevent air bags from deploying in an accident. Dealers will replace the wiring connector for the seat belt tension sensor harness. This recall began on June 18, 2007.
