Passenger air bag is intermittently disabled with passenger in passenger seat. Problem has reocured intermittently numerous times since we purchased vehicle (Dec 2014) however dealer says cannot fix until it fail so they can see it. Code no fault found is all they will tell us. Dealer has made no attempt to fix problem other than read codes. No parts replaced, no adjustments made no troubleshooting of any kind as far as I know. Nissan corporate prefers to deny problem exists. Problem occurs with wife in seat as she is frequent passenger. Dealer never ask her to sit in seat to check codes at that time. Have 6 page document that nisan provided that tells one how to sit in seat, more a cya document from Nissan. Doc says there may be an object placed under the front seat but if you notice Nissan elected to remove the trim on 2015 models that keeps the trash out. Also have copy of December 2015 consumer reports that list this exact problem for another Nissan mode, (lower LH corner). Honest dealers will admit there is a problem, ours will not! dealer hands are tied by Nissan usa as they cannot swap parts without corporates approval. Problem occurs just after you start vehicle with passenger in passenger seat, air bag disabled light may go off in 1 min, 3 min or 30 or more min as vehicle is driven. Cannot make it happen or make lightt go off. Am worried if we have accident when air bag is disabled how much protection does my wife have or more importantly much has she lost. Problem occurs both in city and highway driving.

Vehicle warning light indicates that the passenger air bag is off with an adult in the seat. Passenger must move around in the seat to find a spot that turns the warning light off. Sometimes the passenger must leave the vehicle and re-enter the seat to get the light off. Even when the light goes out we are not sure the air bag would deploy.

Purchased a new 2015 Nissan Murano platinum at end of May. Noticed right away when my 95 pound son would sit in front passenger seat, the 'passenger airbag deactivated' light would come on and stay on. We inquired with our local dealer and they said everything was checked out and operating correctly. We were told the new seat sensors were very sensitive and my son needed to 'move around' a bit in the seat to activate the front passenger airbag. That never worked. I started paying close attention to the indicator and noticed that about half the time the front passenger airbag would deactivate when I was in the front passenger seat, and I am 270 pounds! we were about to go back to the dealer again, when we noticed an article in the Sunday, September 6, 2015 New York times about this exact same issue in several 2014 Nissan models, which prompted this formal compliant.

In about half of the drives passenger airbag off signal comes up when an adult passenger is seated in front, this happens for the same passenger. I was told by dealer that the weight limit is set around 120lbs which seems to high for small adults, females especially. This creates a safety hazard as we are using the vehicle with pasenger airbag turned off half the time.
