I just received word from our local infinity dealer that I two have the same code . But mine is for the stearing colum air bag. I'm totally pissed!!! 2,800 to replace and fix. Really??? This is not a component that sustains anywhere and tear and should not go out. And to hit you with a $2800 bill is preposterous. This should be a recall issue.
This problem was the last straw of a long list of problems I had been putting up with from the "steering column" for a long time. We purchased the car when it was four years, old with 99,000 miles. When we first purchased the car I realized that the voice call button did not work along with the "up" buttons for the switches on the left side of the steering wheel. Thankfully my cruise control was not affected or I may have taking care of it along time ago. The next thing to go was my heated steering wheel then the horn and lastly the airbag which did get my attention. After researching the problem we self diagnosed it as the spiral cable/clock spring which is located behind the airbag and contains all of the "bells and whistles" wires that run to the steering wheel. After watching a video on YouTube my dad was able to replace it and all of the problems when away!! Cost of DIY fix $230 and 2 hours. :) I really do like this car but it does require ALOT of maintenance. My husband and I would NOT own this car if my father was not a good mechanic. Thanks Dad!!
airbag light starting going off a couple months ago. I finally had them look at it, same code I believe, and they said that'll be $3,200 for a new steering column. He said he'd keep checking the recall list to see if it comes up soon. I can deal with a blinking light, although a nuisance, but I'm quite concerned that the airbag may indeed not work if ever needed!
