    Since posting question and receiving answer ("see the dealer"), I read this fix on a Nissan forum: turn on ignition switch (don't start engine) and when airbag symbol first blinks, turn off ignition for 5 seconds; back on, wait for first blink; off for 5 seconds; back on, wait for first blink; off for 5 seconds; done. This proceedure worked for me!

First, turn on your car (ON key position) and your airbag light stays on for 7 seconds, then starts flashing every half second. (.5 seconds on, .5 seconds off, repeat)
This means either your airbag is malfunctioning, or it malfunctioned in the past. We'll find out exactly what happened in a second.

If your airbag light is on solid the whole time, either your airbag has deployed, the computer thinks its deployed, or your sensor or wire harness is broken. You're going to need a professional to fix this.

If your light never comes on at all, your METER fuse might be blown, or you might have a wiring fault in an airbag circuit. Go directly to Infiniti and have a professional fix this.

OK, so your light is flashing like I explained before. Next, we're going to enter DIAGNOSIS mode. This mode will tell you exactly what’s wrong with your airbag (according to the computer at least) It's a bit tricky, but read carefully.

1. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
2. After “AIR BAG” warning lamp lights for 7 seconds, [i.e. when it stops running solid and starts flashing] turn ignition switch “OFF” within 1 second. [DO NOT SWITCH IT TO LOCK, SWITCH IT TO ACC]
3. Wait more than 3 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 two times. (Perform 3 times in total.)
5. Turn ignition switch “ON”.
SRS is now in Diagnosis mode.

Try it a few times. If you can't get it to work, have someone else try. If you STILL can't get it to work, check your battery voltage. It might be low.

In diagnosis mode, you're going to hope the light flashes slowly. 2 seconds off, 3 seconds on, and repeats. If your light does this, this means that the computer detected a previous error that hasn't been erased. This is good.

If you get ANY OTHER result, go directly to Infiniti. You've got a real problem that needs a real fix.

Now, to erase the error from memory.

5. If “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates as [as I said before], turn ignition switch “OFF” to reset from Diagnosis mode
to User mode and to erase the memory of the malfunction.

6. Turn ignition switch “ON”. “AIR BAG” warning lamp operates in
User mode. [it should stay on for 7 seconds, then go off, like normal.]

Hope this helps you.

    Thank you Randy Dix! This actually worked. Turned out to be a malfunction in the system. I didn't have to go and spend money for someone to fix it. Thanks again Randy!

Needs to be taken into the dealer and reset the module. This is a safety feature that basically tells the oem if the system has been tampered with. Sorry for the bad news.

The horn dose not sound when button is pushed on steering wheel. Passenger air bag is off, and how can I turn it on to operational mode


As far as the passenger airbag is concerned - OFF may be normal. This is an excerpt from the owner's manual (page 1-67).

Passenger Sensing System
The vehicle has a passenger sensing system for the
right front passenger position. The passenger airbag
status indicator will be visible when you start the vehicle.
The word OFF or off symbol will be visible near the
clock, located in the center of the instrument panel,
during the system check. See
Passenger Airbag Status
Indicator on page 3-27
.
When the system check is complete, either the words
ON and OFF or the symbol for on and off will be visible
under certain conditions.
The passenger sensing system will turn off the right
front passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted
side impact airbag (if equipped) under certain conditions.
The driver airbags are not part of the passenger
sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with a sensor that
is part of the right front passenger seat. The sensor is
designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
(if equipped) should be enabled (may inflate) or not.


The horn is another matter. There are four possibilities here. I will list them in order of likelihood:

  1. Bad switch in the steering wheel. These are common failure items.
  2. Bad horn relay
  3. Bad horn assembly itself
  4. Faulty wiring in the horn circuit (including fuse)
You can have the switch(es) replaced in the steering wheel, but they are just as likely to fail again. I have had this issue happen in the past, and I simply went to the bottom of the steering column, found the horn button wire, and installed a dashboard mounted horn button. It is legal in most jurisdictions for inspection purposes as long as the button is easily accessible by the driver.

Airbag light keeps blinking on my 2013 Nissan


Check with the dealer to see if there is a recall for your air bag. There's a lot of faulty airbags installed in a lot of cars.

I have 2004 range rover. car is fine but air bag light is on. some time get off.


You can check your connection where the wiring from your airbag module connects to the wiring in your dash. Probably somewhere behind the dash in center. Depending on how many airbags you have it may be somewhere else but passenger side dash module would be a good place to start.Does the light blink a couple times before it stays on? WHEN WORKING AROUND AIRBAG EXERCISE EXTREME CAUTION!!! THEY CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS EVEN DEADLY!!! DISCONNECTING BATTERY BEFORE YOU BEGIN WORK IS RECOMMENDED!!!!

Airbag light blinking--not deployed


The light indicates a fault in the airbag system - a problem that potentially could prevent the bags from deploying in a collision. The system needs to be checked out by your Nissan dealer or a mechanic equipped to diagnose/repair airbag problems.

Air bag light blinks then syays on


If you mean the passenger airbag light no longer lights up and airbag light on the dash blinks at start-up and then stays on; the read the below and check this site:

www.automotivehelper.com

I went to radio shack cost me $2.99 for 3 bulb packet. But the post below worked. It really didn't that long, pretty easy job. Took longer to find the tools. The first guys idea/fix, the second guy gave pretty good instructions. Just a little more detail: (3) the clips are one each side of the panel; (5) these two screws are on the inside lower part of module, (6) unclip the plastic tabs from the back (where the plug end is) first and it should lift up easily.

-------------
I had this happen on my 98 Ranger.(code 27) My light on the module that turns off the passenger side airbag was burnt out. I went to Radio Shack and bought a 12v light with wires attached and soldered them to the existing light.(didn't even take it out!) It fixed it!! Cost, about $1.50 and 20 minutes of fix time.

Note: If the light by the key switch to turn off the passenger side airbag does not work, it disables the entire airbag system! Hope yours is as easy to fix.

----------

gerg,

Thanks for your post. I have no way to read codes, but I heard the five tone alarm every time I started the vehicle and the passenger air bag off light did not light up. I was skeptical, but tried your advice and it worked.

Parts:
1) 12-volt colored lamp (Radio Shack part: 272-1099)

Tools:
1) socket set
2) philips head screw driver
3) soldering iron

Procedure:
1) remove ash tray from console panel
2) using a socket set, remove 4 hex head screws from console panel
3) pull console panel out of the two clips
4) remove connector from air bag key module in console panel and take console panel to a work bench
5) remove 2 philips head screws to remove the airbag key module
6) carefully unclip the plastic tabs that hold the airbag key module case together
7) remove connector circuit board from air bag key module
8) solder the yellow replacement lamp to the two solder pads for the original lamp on the back side of the circuit board (which wire to which pad does not matter)
9) tie the replacement lamp in place next to the original lamp
10) replace the circuit board in the airbag key module and snap the case back together
11) connect the airbag key module in the truck and start the engine to check that the lamp illuminates and that the alarm does not sound
12) screw the aribag key module back into the console panel
13) snap the console panel back into the truck
14) replace the 4 hex head screws
15) replace the ash tray
