Ten problems related to air bag light on have been reported for the 2009 Nissan Murano.
The passenger air bag light and the main air bag indicator lights are both on our Murano. We are seeing the exact same issues as in the recall for certain 2009 Nissan Muranos and our Murano is barely outside the window of recalled Muranos. The dealership says they can't help us since it was built barely outside the dates of the recalled Muranos even though it is the exact same issue. Plus Nissan keeps having the same issues with different years of Muranos, so it is pretty obvious they have a widespread problem with this.
The contact owns a 2009 Nissan Murano. Upon starting the vehicle, the air bag warning indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the sensor in the passenger seat needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 121,000.
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.
Takata recall . . . . My passenger airbag light has been on for about 3 yrs. Now and when it has been hooked up to a computer results always come back the same. . . Error in airbag. Now I've contacted Nissan and they are telling me that even though I may have a takata airbag my VIN # is not on the recall list so therefore they cannot do anything about the problem. I would have to pay out of my own pocket to have it fixed. Now they did tell me that according to their records and with the VIN # that was given to them in oct 2008 my Murano already had been serviced for passenger side airbag light staying on. So basically what they were saying was that my Murano had already used the one free service check in oct 2008 for airbag. First of all, my vehicle is an 09, so Nissan already admitted that according to their records and my VIN # that I was already having airbag issues before the vehicle was released to be sold. I purchased it at beginning of 2012 and 2013 is when my airbag light came on. Now I have had it cleared and seems like if it is cold cause I do live in ohio, but if I clear it today and it's not really cold it may not come on, but as soon as it gets cold it comes right back on. Now there has been times where it has been cleared and as soon as you turn off the engine and start it back up it comes right back on. I also am having issues with tpms, no matter what tires I buy I am constantly battling the low tire pressure light. It's been taking to tire shops and been checked for slow leaks and leaks around the valve stem, nothing. I have also had to replace the motors in mt steering wheel because both of those went out on me. Now my new issue is my air vents. When the defrost is on certain air vents do not shut off, air still comes through them. And in the winter I feel like there is cold air blowing up through the floor. No issues with 04 Murano.
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.
