flashing airbag sensor light. Here is how to reset it yourself.

1. Turn the key from off to on.

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

Mikey. Is your solution individual to a Qashqai or can it be used on other makes also?.

I've this method to reset the flashing airbag light, but as soon as i drive the car it comes back on Or if I RESET it, turn the engine on everything is ok till I turn on the lights. I have put a very good diagnostics machine on the car and it cannot find a fault with the airbag system. I believe the airbag module/control unit is voltage sensitive, because of this I checked the battery voltage and charging voltage, everything looks fine. Do you know of any other reason why this light would come on? Where is the airbag module located?
