== == Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights. See if your car is listed here. On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing. Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool. Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light. Also, you may want to check out this site for information on researching your own vehicle for factory recalls!!! THE NISSAN SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (AIRBAG) CONTROL UNIT IS DESIGNED TO DISABLE ALL AIRBAGS IN THE EVENT OF A DETECTED SYSTEM MALFUNCTION. WHEN THE RED AIRBAG LIGHT IS ON ALL OF THE AIRBAGS ARE OFF AND WILL NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF A COLLISION.
