Question about 1996 Nissan Maxima

Open Question

My air bag light is flashing, I recently changed the battery.

My 1996 maxima had the battery changed, and the airbag light keeps flashing, no stop and starts of flashing to get a code its a constant flash. How do I get it to stop flashing. This has happened before but I forgot what I did to stop the light. I have already done the turn key on and hit doorlocks 15xs and then turn off car and start, but didnt work.

SOURCE: flashing selt belt and air bag lights

Anything's possible, but don't buy the car if this condition persists. If the airbag was damaged, the repair cost is quite high.
And you will not be able to pass inspection if the seat belt light remains lit.

You have to disconnect the battery, replace the air bag modules (air bag modules are the things that explode in your face) and the crash sensors and the control unit or module that came with it. Reconnect the battery and the car should start. Hope this is helpful.

the most common cause of the airbag light is a defective rotoating ribbon contact under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the steering column wiring harness, the contact is called the clock-spring contact.

Have it checked by a professional as soon as possible, airbag has a problem wich can be as simple as a short in the wiring or as harmful as the possibility of deploying airbags without any warning. Please take advice.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van flashes a 19 code. Does anyone know what that means?


Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!

If the computer in the air bag diagnostic monitor detects an open in the air bag indicator circuit and if another system fault exists, then the air bag diagnostic monitor will turn on its internal tone generator (beeper). The beep pattern is five sets of five beeps. The pattern is repeated every 30 minutes while the ignition switch is in the ON position. The five beeps do not indicate a code five or any other code. The air bag indicator circuitry must be repaired before the diagnostic trouble code can be read.

The air bag module monitors all of the electrical circuits of the air bag system. If it detects a fault in any of these circuits, it will cause the air bag light to come on. If it's flashing, count the number of flashes between pauses, this should be the diagnostic code the module is telling you what is wrong with the airbag system (or you can use a scan tool) The only way to keep the light off (besides removing it from dash) is to repair the fault, you can clear the code with the scantool, but it will come right back on if it still sees the fault.
