I recently had the only recall on my Sentra fixed at the dealer but the airbag off sensor still lights up when my husband sits in the passenger seat. Indicating if we are in a crash, the airbag on his side will not deploy. Light stayed on during entire trip. Never went off

I reported this problem to Nissan February 2015. They have not been able to fix this yet. NHTSA campaign number: 16V244000 last time I brought my vehicle in Nov 28, I gave them a video I had taken of the passenger air bag light indicating the airbag was disabled on Nov 26 during a trip from san francisco to la. The passenger air bag was disabled during 120 miles of the trip. The technician said that this can happen if I move, like lifting your butt to remove your wallet out of your back pocket, I just have to pull the vehicle over to the side of the road, turn it off, wait for a minute and start it again. I pointed out how ridiculous that statement was. So what happens if you drive on a bumpy road? he responded: Ok, we will reset the sensor but it will probably not solve the problem. He was right in that, same evening the passenger air bag got disabled again. I have several videos of the air bag being disabled at multiple occasions while driving on streets and highways. The car have now been in twice for Nissan to fix this problem. But they don't seem to have the ability to do just that.

The occupant classification system (OCS) on the front seat passenger side automatically turns off the passenger air bag with my wife in the seat and we are driving down the highway. Turns off and on.

Passenger side airbag indicator light goes on and off. Does not recognize when a 135 pound person is sitting in the passenger seat. Noticed the recall on NHTSA and took the vehicle to streater smith Nissan in conroe Texas. They performed a zero point reset and said there were no recalls on this vehicle when it is clearly listed on the NHTSA website. I have real concerns that Nissan has not seen fit to order an actual recall on this defective issue. Because until they do their dealers will not fix the situation. The vehicle was in motion with a passenger in the seat. I do not remember the exact date with a passenger in the vehicle the date below is when the vehicle was taken to Nissan.

The passenger air bag light illuminates indicating the passenger side air bag is disabled during travel intermittently both with and without a passenger present in the passenger seat. It has happened during all types of driving and seems to occur more frequently when making a relatively sharp right hand turn. Dealer did update firmware and/or re-calibrate the air bag system under warranty but this did not resolve the issue. I believe one or more air bag components is intermittently failing. The duration of the air bag light staying illuminated has been anywhere from a few seconds to 30+ minutes. First taken to dealer in July 2015, have called and/or been back in several time since. They have stated they must be able to reproduce the issue in order to diagnose/resolve. Please note this is an air bag system intermittently failing, not something less critical like a radio or air conditioner.

Started to notice that when I had a passenger in my vehicle, the passenger air bag light was not engaged. After researching your site, I noticed a recall on this issue and do not understand why I was not notified of the recall and why my vehicle is not included in the recall, as it should be. Thank you.

Airbag passenger light comes on randomly and stays on from seconds to minutes. At times the passenger seatbelt light comes on also. It was reset by Nissan in January and only happened one or twice after they serviced my car. Had maintenance/oil change/tire rotation in April and the passenger airbag light issue seems to have increased significantly. Will have it serviced again this month and have the passenger airbag light issued addressed again.

Sometimes when the passenger seat is empty the passenger airbag is turned off. When a passenger then enters the car it does not turn the airbag on. The only way to correct this is to turn the car off and back on. This only happens when the passenger enters the car while it is still running. If you start the car with the passenger already in the seat the system works properly. This happens almost everyday. The Nissan dealership says this is known issue but does not know how to fix it. I know there was a recall for this issue, but my car is not on that recall.
