Air Bag light won't go off on Nissan Murano

I know I have to go to the Dealer, but don't they have to repair free of charge because of Federal Safety Law??

    Try This, I got this from It worked for me.

    Since some of you guys here are new owners I thought I'd save you a trip to the dealer once you start modifing your armada's. I'm not sure what set's it off (other than pulling things apart) but at some point you will likely end up with a flashing airbag sensor light. Here is how to reset it yourself.

    1. Turn the key from off to on.

    2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

    3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

    4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

    5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

    6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

    excellent advise - I have 2010 murano and had same issue. Followed this not sure how many times but cleared the annoying blinking airbag light :)
  • Thanks for these instructions but I have a question - being as this worked and the light is no longer blinking:

    Does this mean that I didn't really have a problem?
    Did the sensor just have to re-set?
  • Same problem with my 2007 Murano at 57k miles. Light came on out of the blue while driving locally. Light began blinking and continued non-stop without going solid or blinking intermittently. I followed the above-mentioned directions to reset and after figuring out how to do it correctly, the light went off and did not return.

    I made my appointment with my dealer but called to leave a voicemail to potentially cancel my appointment. I am waiting for a return call to advise me on how to proceed.

    I don't assume anything but, given that the light went of and has not returned (it hasn't been a full 24 hours yet), does this mean it was a glitch versus a serious problem?

    Any advice is helpful.

  • I have a 2005 Murano and the airbag light will not go off, the dealer told me the airbag would still work. I was just told by another mechanic that the air would not go off if in an accident. Can anyone confirm this fact? Also any idea of the cost to fix? can anyone fix or does it have to go back to the dealer?

    My 05 Mo has been doing this now for a couple years. I just keep resetting it. It's been to the dealer twice...nothing came out of that except they did confirm the air bag will not deploy if the light is blinking. I'd really like to know what the cause is and get rid of the annoyance. Has anybody found a cure?

    Had same problem with 2009 murano followed the advice above and problem solved cheers

  • I have a 2005 Murano and tried your fix and after I finished the process it went into a different rhythm of blikiing........ Slow,slow then fast,fast, fast in that order, any other hints I can try?

    HI, i tried this on my 2006 murano. After several attempts i got it to work. As I sat there so happy that it worked I grabbed the wheel and turned it, then the light came back. I did this a second time, it seemed to work, i sat there a good 10 minutes no light, but again as soon as i turned the wheel it came back. Any ideas what it may be? Would it be a sensor issue, or airbag replacement for sure? Please, I need to know.

    Bad clock spring. Airbag light comes back on after a reset and you turn the steering wheel
