How are you Pearl? My 2012 Nissan sentra air bag warning…

Hey, how are you...

Hey, how are you Pearl? My 2012 Nissan sentra air bag warning light is on. Dealer said the occupant c/u malfunction and the frame FR Bck RH needs to be replaced = $4,401.00 for the part and add the tax $ 373.50. I have a 7 yr service agreement and it doesn't cover.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?

They did a diagnostic. Harness and connector looks okay.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sentra yourself? What have you tried so far?

I'm going to disconnect the battery and check the wiring underneath the seat tomorrow. The service person mentioned something about frail wiring.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hmm. somebody on the internet said how to do the diagnostic by turning on the engine and not starting the engine and waiting 4 secs and do that 4 times and I need a manual though. Ordered a manual today.

It blinks constantly.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No. I rather type.
Ok, that is consistent with the occupant sensor in the seat, which requires replacing the seat base, but that price seems quite high to be honest.

almost $5000.00 not including the installment. Where can I get the part cheaper?

It's okay. I am new to this.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I'm sorry but I have to go.
The ideal place to get an inexpensive replacement would be from a salvage facility

Thanks. There maybe some at the salvage yard. Thanks.
The main concern here is that if you replace it yourself, you have to be sure to disconnect the battery prior to working on the SRS system
