Air Bag Light On problem #3
The vehicle involved is a 2009 Nissan Murano. 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.

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.

I pointed out to the dealer and to nca the listed recall but they informed me it did not include my VIN.

Air Bag Light On problem #4
Vehicle identification number (VIN): JN8AZ18W19_. 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. The failure date was Friday, June 26, 2009.
