We are in a live chat session
Are you on?
Tell me more about your situation
we took radio out and put in sirus radio and now airbag light blinks
Allow me to explain how the air bag warning system works on your vehicle
The air bag light is unlike the check engine light, so to speak
Every time you shut the key off on you car, the air bag light automatically resets itself
If performs a diagnostic check of all circuits when you turn the key on
when it detects a fault, it will eliuminate the air bag light
This is why you haven't been able to clear the light by disconnecting the battery
Something has happened during the install of the radio
A wire has become pulled from a connector, a connector has been pulled loose, or a short circuit has occured
Have you checked all of the fuses?
The air bag fuses could be underneath the hood, or in the passenger compartment and are usually wrapped in a yellow plastic to let you know that that is an explosive circuit
no where is connector for airbag light
The connector for the light would be considered the main connector of the instrument cluster. The Air bag system will have as many as 10 connectors in it
Do you own the vehicle? or are you a radio installer?
in fuse box we check fuse it was red in color , it was ok
Ok, reverse what you have just done.
Did you wire anything into the circuits
or just install a adapter
wire taped onto 12v accesory at radio
Is there a passenger airbag disabled light on the bezel that covers the radio?
anything that has to do with airbags
below the radio
light goes out when i sit in passenger seat
this is where the problem is
lemme look at a schematic
give me a minute
Whats the body code
checked to make sure it was pluged in all the way
Altima S? ser sl
v6 4 cyl
Did you go in the doors?
just installed sirius satelite radio
w/ factory radio
Ok, there is a whole world of things that could have gone wrong.
You need to scan the air bag for codes
You know any repair shops near by?
any way of just reseting the system?
there is a few
As I said before, the system resets every time you shut the key off.. It runs a test when you turn the key on. It will never shut off because something is wrong
I'll be here for a while if you want to try to get me a code out of the air bag module. I think we can get the light off...
any way of getting the code without a scanner?
I found something
you still with me?
I found a reboot procedure for the Air Bag module..
Do these steps exactly as it says, and let me know how it goes..
will try now
Glad I could help
write that down! ahah
