Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Passenger air bag light comes on either while driving with passenger in front seat. She is 5'4" & 200lbs. I have brought it back to the dealer 4 times, & last time they had it for 6 days & could nor replicate the problem. On a 1500 mile trip to fl from MA, it happened 4 times, & once with me in the passenger seat (I am 5'6" & 260 lbs) dealer will not replace sensors or computer until it sees the error. What do I do drive an unsafe vehicle" I am due to return to MA this Sunday, does my wife sit in the rear seat" this has happened at least 25 times in the last 3 months.

Although this issue is identified for certain 2015 Rogues, mine is not among them, however I am experiencing the following: The front seat passenger occupant classification system light in the dash is lit up whether or not an occupant is in the passenger seat. It started to come on intermittently when the seat was occupied and empty and now it stays on continuously once the engine is started.

The contact owns a 2015 Nissan Rogue. While driving 50 mph, a deer emerged from the side of the road and struck the contact's vehicle. There were no warning lights illuminated and the air bags did not deploy. There were no injuries and a police report was filed. The vehicle was driven to an independent mechanic where the contact was informed there was a defect in the air bags. The VIN tool was not used to verify a recall; however, the manufacturer added the vehicle to the recall list on May 23, 2016. The failure mileage was 16,900.

The passenger side airbag is turned off when someone is sitting in the seat. The seat belt warning light also is lit when the seat is empty of people or cargo.

The front passenger air bag indicator light lights up on car start indicating airbag is switched off despite the fact there is an adult passenger occupying the seat. Happens intermittently, passenger range from son, wife, friends, weighing from 120 to 290 pounds with height of 5.1 to 5.9 feet. The problem is bypassed or re-mediated by forcing the driver to stop pullover and then stop and start the car to activate the airbag on the passenger side. If the car is in the garage it is easy to stop and start (the engine) to get rid of this issue but when I am picking up someone from school or office it is a hassle and a danger as the bag is not activated unless it is observed and remediation process done (stop and start the car engine). The issue does not happen when the car is in motion. It only takes place when we offload or get someone in the passenger seat (front) in stationary, park or with brakes on and in drive gear on-boarding a passenger, . on going issue since past 8 months.

Airbag indicator light/front passengers seat comes on indicating it's not activated with a passenger in the seat while the car is in motion. Dealers says it is due to Nissan's new design and to have the passenger (my wife) sit with her butt against the back of the seat, legs straight out in front of her with feet on the floor. That's the fix ? well, it doesn't work. Nissan needs to make this right or buy the car back due to faulty equipment. This is a safety issue with lives in jeopardy.

The inactive passenger's airbag which indicates that the passenger airbag is disabled stays illuminated even when an adult sits in the seat. This is intermittent. Sometimes restarting the car will no other changes will fix the issue (the light stops being illuminated). I have no idea whether this relates to the airbag itself, the sensor, or the light.
