Hi guys I have a 59 plate van with a flashing srs air bag light, is there a common cause for this? I notice there are a lot of problems on older micras that Nissan haven't been able to solve. Thanks in advance Darren :smile:
Can't help specifically, and I don't know what country you're in, but, in the UK, when you open the passenger side door, I think there's a switch in the side of the instrument console plastic panel, to enable/disable the passenger airbag (for when it's not needed on for any reason). Might be worth operating that switch a few times (I think the van key can be used, or large screwdriver blade) - rain might've got in while using that side . Put it back to whatever position it started in
Wow, not every airbag fault is the clockspring. It is a common fault, I won't ague there(even though I've never had to replace one on an NV200 in the last 5 years of working on them) but I wouldn't recommend people blindly go spending money on a part before they know wtf is the problem first.
I can only imagine the kinds of responses that would get posted if someone says their engine light is on.
I hope everyone here has the common sense to prove the part faulty before going out to purchase it. But my point is before they go opening up the centre console trim etc and try to get to the airbag module itself, when the issue could be (being a common fault) in the steering wheel and the obd scanner will read airbag module and looking at the wrong part.
obd scanner would read an open circuit for the drivers wheel airbag if the clock spring is at fault. Unless things work differently on the other side of the world? Over hear you hook up a scan tool, then read the codes. When a clock spring breaks it opens the circuit for one or more of the controls leading to the steering wheel. Horn, radio controls, cruise control etc...could also work or not from a fault of the clock spring.
I'm assuming these things are built much differently over there. In North America they're produced in Mexico, and assembled pretty poorly in my opinion. Sounds like the clock springs must be a far more common issue over there?
Weird. Good to know. These are codes pulled from the airbag module itself and not generic obdII codes from the ecm I presume?
Side note, I have a 2017 nv200 here that the back up sensors don't work. No codes found in any of the 9 modules and computers(using a big boy grown up scan tool). When you put it in reverse the park assist disable button lights up. I'd start a thread of my own but this forum isn't moderated so wth lol.
