Came upon your post today, 12-6. You might want to check out Recaro seats (racing seats). I also had back problems and installed one in my car. They are listed on the internet @ $219 each, but u should try one out to make sure it's comfortable. I had mine over 20 years ago (long gone now!) it was very firm, u might say 'hard'. Don't know if it would be good for u, it helped me. Let me know if u need more info.

Why is the Air Bag Light on On my 2005 Nissan Quest


If you are asking its purpose: it is to let you know whether or not the passenger seat frontal bag is deployed to trigger in case of a collision. Frontal/face-directed airbags have no reason or need to "fire" in the case of an empty seat; and every reason, safety-wise, not to fire into a seat occcupied by a child (a person below a minimal, safety related threshold passenter weight...lest the impact injure or kill). That is why children and similarly vulnerable smaller/frailer people belong behind the front seatbacks in a rear seat if present.

On the other hand, if the driver (who for obvious reason does not merit his own light) notices that the "air bag off" indicator in front of the passenger seat does not extinguish (or "bag on" light does not activate) when an adult comes aboard...that is an indication to driver and passenger alike that the bag might not fire in the event of a collision.

Everything said above also applies to parcels placed in the front passenger seat...a practice that has largely been superseded by trunk and backseat placement of parcels (placement of anything on the so-called "package deck" (Ford's term for rear window ledge) being "not" recommended).

For readers with owner manuals, this info is explained for their particular vehicle models.

Not sure on the Almera, but some vehicles need the light to be re-set with a scanner, it has stored the radiator fault in it's memory, trip to a garage I'm afraid.

Replacing severe


cebd8d08-0b93-4be4-a8ba-b0eb7c57df3a.jpgCheck connections under passenger seat.
The SRSCM sets DTC B1322 if
there is any fault in Weight Classification System.



In contrast to the initial
one-stage airbag systems, newer restraint systems involve complex logic to
select, or alternatively suppress, various levels of safety system deployment.


Inherent to an advanced
Restraint System is the ability to discern information regarding passenger
occupancy.


It is intended that these
inputs be provided through the weight measuring OC system.


The object of such safety
system is to reduce the risk and level of injuries by automatically adapting the
airbag(s) and seat belt pretensioner to the driving status of the vehicle, its
occupants, and the crash severity.


The current OC system covered
in this specification continually senses and classifies the front passenger side
seat.


OCS is utilizing a robust
weight measuring technology. Thus, if any of the following conditions occur,
'command zero' and 'accuracy check' should be performed


The weight classification ECU
or any of the sensors is replaced.


The vehicle is brought to the
repair shop due to an accident or a crash even though the severity seems to be
minor.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is off (not illuminated) when the passenger seat is not
occupied.


The passenger airbag ON
indicator is delayed more than 10 seconds before turning off when an adult
passenger is seated in the right front seat.


The passenger seat is removed
from the vehicle and re-assembled.


Any accessories (side table,
seatback table and seat cover, etc) are replaced or installed.

Does a nissan skyline r32 coupe have 2 seats or 4 seats


The Nissan Skyline R32 Coupe has 4 Seats although not very spacious in the back but do serve a purpose kind of.

(Rear seat is for 2 passengers only as it has a raised middle part to the seat due to the drive shaft tunnel)

Driver seat not adjusting


First two things I would look at is either the switch assembly that moves the seat or one of the seat motors. These are common issues no just on this vehicle, but, several others as well. If it is one of the seat motors, call Nissan to see if the motor can be purchased separately (most cases it cannot, you'll have to purchase the entire seat track which is very costly). If the motor cannot be purchased separately, scan salvage yards or the other option is to drive the vehicle with a driver seat that doesn't adjust.
The other issue which is very rare is quite possibly a fuse. But, I haven't seen one with a blown fuse yet. It is usually what mentioned above.

I have an 1998 acura slx. It will not start after replacing the old battery? All it does is click when I turn it over?


Check connections to make sure they are free of corrosion and tight, including connection at starter. If all connections are tight and clean, check the battery. Even if it's new, there is a chance you purchased a defective one. You can bring it to a parts store for a free check. If it checks out ok, you may have a starter problem. Pull it, and again, bring to the parts store, they can check its' condition off the vehicle to see if it's operating properly,
