Six problems related to air bag light on have been reported for the 2009 Nissan Murano.
Air bags light keep stay on, call Nissan manufacturer and they won't do the recall for the air bag.
My 2009 Murano has had an ongoing problem with the passenger side airbag. My passenger airbag shuts off and shuts down the whole airbag system in my car. The dealership has explained to me that when the airbag lights are flashing that I have no airbag protection. I have brought my vehicle back to the dealer a couple of times to have them look at it. They said that they were able to turn off the flashing airbag light each time but they said that they wouldn't be able to do it anymore. They told me that there is a problem with the passenger seat sensor and passenger side airbag. It does not recognize that there is someone sitting in the seat and does not activate. They said that I would need to replace both at a cost of $5000 and that there was a problem with the sensor and the airbag. I contacted Nissan and was told that its not under warranty and that there is nothing that they could do for me. I would just have to replace it. I have researched other passenger side airbag problems and recalled airbags found that each of the situations were similar to mine. I purchased this 2009 Murano after I was involved in an accident with my other 2006 Nissan Murano. The airbags in the 2006 Murano worked and my family and I were able to walk away with only a few scratches because the airbags worked. Now I have a vehicle that may or may not have a working airbag system. I worry each time I get into the vehicle. Will my airbags deploy or not? the situation needs to be addressed. Listening and reading about other airbag recalls makes me believe that my vehicle is experiencing the same problems. What does Nissan want to happen? should I end up in a collision and have no airbags on the passenger side and someone dies before they look at this airbag situation? this vehicle with this ongoing problem is not worth its fair market value I'm facing a significant loss at no fault of mine.
Air bag light stays on. Upon review by the Nissan dealership, I was informed that the sensor underneath the passenger seat could be the reason the light was blinking. The cost of repair would be $2500. 00. Upon review on the Nissan website this information was found "Nissan is recalling 204,361 my 2007-2008 altima, altima hybrid, 350z, 350z roadster, my 2008 altima coupe, rogue, my 2009 Murano, and Infiniti my 2007-2008 g35 sedan, my 2008 g37 coupe and ex35 passenger vehicles equipped with continental automotive systems' occupant classification system (OCS) control units. A varistor in the OCS control unit located in the passenger seat cushion may have been manufactured out of specification. Under certain conditions, this could cause an interruption of signal between the OCS and the air bag control unit. " my vehicle is having the same problem, yet I was informed by Nissan that my vehicle was not involved in the recall. It seems as if this is a safety issue and needs to be investigated.

On approx. 10 Jan 2012 the airbag light on the dash began flashing. I made an appointment with john lee Nissan to have it checked and serviced. After researching the codes the dealer determined the air bag sensor in the passenger seat cushion failed. The sensor is built into the seat cushion therefore requiring a new seat. The vehicle is out of warranty so I opened a case with Nissan consumer affairs (nca). File # 7357731. The service manger at john lee Nissan sent his report to nca with his determination that given the failure is a direct result of engineering and a safety concern for the public, nca should cover the cost of repairs. Nissan has had VIN specific recalls for seat-seatbelt-airbag components in 2009. See recall information listed below. I pointed out to the dealer and to nca the listed recall but they informed me it did not include my VIN. After numerous conversations with [xxx]at nca he also felt the repair should be covered by Nissan. He was not able to make a decision due to the case being elevated to a higher tear within nca. Nca has denied the claim.

I purchased a new 2009 Nissan Murano in January of 2009. After 5 months of use and 7000 miles the vehicle's airbag light came on. The vehicle was sent to the service department and no problem could not be located and the light was reset. About two weeks later the light came on again and an additional passenger side airbag light came on. We returned the vehicle to the dealership for service and we told the part was on a national back order and it could take several days to 6 months for the part to come in. Even if this was the part that needed to be replaced. The dealership thinks this will take care of the problem but cannot guarantee it will work. The nature of this malfunction and the unavailability of parts for repair might cause problems for other consumers.
