NISSAN FB 15 - AIR BAG LIGHT

Question

Hi, 

I have a Nissan FB 15 car and recently air bag bulb starts to blink on meter board. I have done a scan and switched off the light twice. But it again starts to blink. My mechanic asked to replace the air bag module. 

Do I have to replace the air bag module or is there any other way to switched off the light? If I hv to replace it what will be the cost?

thank you

When the diagnostic scan was done, it would have revealed one or more error codes. Do you know what the actual error is? The code would point to what is actually faulty. 

So find out what the error is before blindly replacing parts.

The very first thing you need to do, is change the mechanic. This is the part that gives you the biggest trouble. 

Second, take the car to A*W or a good garage with a scanner. Ask them to find out what the error is. It could be something as simple as a loose screw.

After 10 years of use, the air bag sensors and the mechanisms of the airbag deploying in most cars fail and there is nothing you can do about it. Take the car to Ravi and get it checked and he will tell you what to do. Just because the indicator light comes up doesnt mean you have to replace the airbag. most probably you will have to redeploy the existing airbags. It will cost you around a good 10k. Just take the car to Nissan Ravi in Kelaniya. That's the only mechanic I trust.

Expert Advise: If anything doesn't work out, switch on car, put seat belt  and hit hard on the airbag sensor.  not sure drivers seat to be occupied. If airbag inflates, yeahh.. it works..👏 nothing to worry. If not take it to a professional..:laughing-smiley-002: 

Just kidding, agreed with Crosswind , better seek advice from a specialised person. Not regular mechanics. Worth you take to the agents compared to the time and money waste here and there.
