1996 Nissan Sentra 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 109500 miles
Just bought this as a run around for $1500 knowing I would have to spend some money to make it roadworthy.
It failed state inspection on a flashing air bag warning light.
Nissan dealer says it will cost over $700 for the new sensor plus labor.
My wife says I should go to MyAirBags. Com and pay $50.
I don't know what I get for $50 and I am not at all mechanical so I doubt that I could reset this thing myself.
Is it legal to use whatever MyAirBags. Com supplies?
Should I play it safe and go with the dealer?
You dont have to go to the dealer, but I would use a shop for this repair. Depending on the code in the system, it may not be the air bag itself, but a impact sensor or other item. Regardless, when the repair is complete you will have to clear the computer (SRS System) with a scan tool, it wont reset by itself

First of all I hope I am not breaking any rules but this is a remedy to the situation if it does it again then there is a problem. Here it is I found it by googling it: Open driver door
Turn ignition to the on position The one that will go all the way, but not to start car)
Reach down with your right hand if your a rightty
Press the door ajar sensor button thing (7) times
Start your car.
Takes practice to nail it right though. Any problems, just ask me.
