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.

Titan 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


I have taken my truck in twice now for the brakes and the carpet being soaking wet from the truck leaking somewhereand the passenger airbag light not turning off. They resurfaced my brakes and said the leak was from the A/C. they also told us about the brake problem with the 2004 Titans and that they would put us on a waiting list for the replacement parts. We are now taking it in again for the same problems. The floor is soaking wet and we have not ran the A/C. the brakes are shaking violently again, and not to mention the new problem of the cargo light turning on by itself when it is parked. I only have about 8300 miles on my truck and I only drive 5 miles one way to work. These are major problems that are occuring in such short time of having the truck.

I have a consistently reproducible problem with the seat belt sensor for the passenger seat. 150 pound individual sitting in the passenger seat fails to engage the air bag (it is indicating that the air bag is off) about one-third of the time they ride in the vehicle. By moving in the seat and sliding forward, the sensor registers the individual and engages the air bag (shutting off the air bag is off light).

The passenger side air bag has malfunctioned. As a result, the sensor light stayed on. The consumer is concerned the passenger side air bag will not deploy upon impact. The dealer states the part is on a national back order. Please provide additional information.

My 120lb wife does not activate the seat sensor for the airbag in my 04 Nissan Titan. While it doesn't happen 100% of the time, it has occurred repeatedly. The dealer checked & confirmed that the system is operating normally and stated that they could do nothing more. At this point my wife is riding in our truck without an airbag. While she does wear a seatbelt, I would like to have the comfort of knowing the full safety system is operational in the event of an accident. Research and other complaints posted here show taht this is not an isolated problem.

Titan 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

No crashes or injuries. The advanced airbag system on our 2004 Nissan Titan disables passenger airbag when a 132 pound female is properly seated in the passenger seat. We have been able to duplicate this problem in every 2004 Nissan Titan at a local dealer's lot. Our dealer states 125 pounds on the seat sensor itself is necessary to enable the airbag, claimed there was nothing wrong and refused to run any diagnostics on the system. The Nissan website claims 47 pounds, Consumer Affairs states 60 pounds is necessary to enable the advanced airbag. It is unclear if this is pounds of pressure exerted on the seat sensor itself, or if a person of this physical weight, seated properly, would have an airbag. My 132 pound wife is exerting about 110 pounds of weight on the seat itself.
