The Passenger Side air Bag Off Warning Light Intermittently Turns On When There Is A Passenger Seated In The Passenger Seat. This Indicates That If There Were An Accident While This Warning Light Is On; The Passenger air Bag Would Not Go Off; Which Can Result In Serious Injury. I Have Brought This Vehicle To The Dealer Three Times For This Issue And They Tell Me That There Are No “codes” To Be Read And They Are Unable To Reproduce This. The Dealer Expressed Concern That They Would Have To Replace The Entire Passenger Seat Because The Occupancy Classification Sensor Can’t Be Individually Replaced. Apparently This Seat Is Quite Expensive; Over $2000 And The Dealer Claims That They Can’t Just Replace It Without Some Authorization From nissan. I Have Even Taken A Video Of My Wife In The Car Seated In The Passenger Seat And The airbag Off Warning Light Is Turned On (youtu.be/uwoqjqwraei) And Have Provided A Link To The Dealer. I Have Called nissan Consumer Affairs Hoping They Would Have My Car Fixed. They Reply They Gave Was That Since The Dealer Couldn’t Reproduce It; They Can’t Do Anything. My Wife Is Afraid Of Driving In The Car With Me For Fear That She Could Be Injured. I Have Even Posted This Video So My Last Resort Is To Report This To Nhtsa Where I See That Someone Else Has Posted A Similar Incident. *tr

The “passenger air Bag Off” Light On Even When An Adult Passenger Is In The Passenger Seat. It Goes Off After Like 10-15 Minutes. This Happens Very Frequently And I Believe Those 10-15 Minutes Without Passenger air Bag Off Is Too Dangerous To Live With In Case If Some Accident Happens. *tr

Bought This Car Nov 30 2013 From The Dealer That Originally Owned It, It Was A Loaner Car For Their Service Dept. From Day One That I Have Owned It, The Passenger airbag Light Goes On An Off At Will. With Nothing In The Seat, It Comes On And Off, With A Person In The Seat It Also Comes On And Off. This Is A Major Safety Issue! I Took It To The Dealer And They Said It Didn’t Do It While They Were Looking At It. Bring It Back When It Gets Worse…. There Are Alot Of These Cars Out There With This Problem! There Needs To Be A Recall On The Sensor/seat/electrical System Related To This. I Am Sure There Is A Short In The System. My Grandmother’s 2012 altima Also Does This Same Thing. Also Something Is Leaking Onto The Passenger Side Floorboard By The Console. The Dealer Said It Was A Body Panel And “fixed” It, But It Is Still Leaking In The Same Spot, I Have Not Had Time To Take It Back To The Dealer Yet For The Leak. *tr

Our 2012 nissan altima‘s Passenger airbag Light Will Shows The airbag Being Inactive While A Person Is Sitting In The Passenger Seat. All People Who Have Sat In This Seat This Issue Occurred Are Over 120 Pounds. Twice We Took The Car To The Planet nissan In Las Vegas Where We Purchased The Car. Their Service Department Said Since The Issue Can Be Replicated They Cannot Do Anything To Fix The Issue. This Has Happened At Least A 100 Hundreds Times In The Past Two Years Of Ownership. Every Time We Call A Dealership We Hear The Same Answer Unless We Can See The Problem And Duplicate It We Cannot Help You. The Issue Is The airbag Light Can Be Lit (showing airbag To Active) And On The Way To The Dealership The Light Goes Out And We Are Back To Square One. After Two Years Of Getting Nowhere With This We Took Video Of The Last Time It Happened. We Brought This To Autonation nissan In Las Vegas And They Check The Wiring Harness Said It Is Not Loos There Is Nothing Else We Can Do Unless We Can Duplicate The Issue. We Logged A Complaint With nissan Usa Hq And Received The Same Response, Sorry We Cannot Help You Nay Further. With All The Recent And Past nissan airbag Recalls I Am Shocked At Their Lack Of Wanting To Do Something Extra To Troubleshoot The The Problem. I Have Researched Many Car Forums And This Is A Common Problem With nissan, They Push The Consumer Away With The Typical Cannot Replicate The Problem Therefore It Isn’t One. At This Point There Is No Guarantee Anyone Sitting In The Passenger Seat Is Safe In A Head On Crash. Is It Going To Take A Person’s Death For nissan To Step Up And Make This Right? This Eerily Reminiscent Of Gm Not Acting On The Faulty Ignition Switches In A Timely Manner.

We Called Them And Asked About If The airbag Would Deploy If The Light Was On, Even Though There Was An Adult In The Seat, This Was Their Response: “well No.. But You’re Supposed To Be Wearing A Seat Belt.” Last nissan I’ll Buy, After Owning 4 Consecutively.
