If you have a heavy enough object sitting in the passenger seat, the sensor may think a person is sitting there without a seatbelt on....or in a case that I ran into a few years back, a small coin had lodged inside my locking side seat belt. The side with the release button. Or lastly, have you vacuumed your car recently? You may have unplugged your seatbelt sensor wires while vacuuming.
Your car is getting up in age too, so check to see if the retracting spring is still pulling the seatbelt back into its holster, check the general condition of your locks on the belts....not sure if there is a fuse link for a seatbelt system in your car...but you could check your owners manual to see if there is, and while in the manual...check for reasons the seatbelt light comes on too. You can get a copy of your owners manual on line from Nissan or a aftermarket source. Good luck and sorry I couldn't be more specific. Your owners manual or an on line search of the trouble code and the specific working generated by the readout will give some information I'm sure....Work safely please. and beware of air bags when messing with seat safety issues. If you deploy an air bag on yourself while messing with the safety controls.....you could be killed or injured....so be careful.

    Thanx Nick . I cannot find the code anywhere on the internet . The flasing light comes on when I turn the ignition on and it stays on till I turn it off . If someone could tell me where the fault code points to . You seem to think its on the passenger seat/front . Is this based on the actual code ?

    Not based on the code Mike, based on previous experience.

Those are sensor errors for the system. Check all the wires under the passenger seat for loose connections, corrosion etc. The errors are seatbelt tension devices and occupant sensors. Some people just bypass the unit. I dont recommend that

Reset Nissan Altima seatbelt light which is flashing


A scan tool is needed to reset the seatbelt light, unhooking the wires turned the light on as a fault, a scan tool will reset code. also make sure all connectors are connected good, the computer may reset itself after it sees a few key cycles and tests the system and it passes but it may take awhile. i have seen some that will stay on until they are reset, if the light is still on after all this time then a scan tool will be needed to turn off the light. good day.

Flashing light on dash - seatbelt indicator


you did'nt state year, make, model. If you are talking about the seat belt light, check your seat belt(the one with the push/release button. check this top to bottom for a broken wire. ckeck under the seat the harness may be damaged as well. If it is the air-bag light bring it to your mechanic. air-bag circuits should be touched without the right knowledge and tools.
