Failure Date: 10/28/2014

The electrical air bag sensors for the passenger seat have become dysfunctional. The air bag light indicator continually flashes on the dashboard and the specific air bag passenger light stays on. I took the car in for repair and the dealership cleared a code associated with the air bags sensors. The air bag lights functioned normally for only a couple of days and then returned back to flashing and/or staying on continuously. I was advised that the sensors in the passenger seat are not working and that it will cost $2,500 to repair. I understand that there was a recall on 2008 Nissan Rogue air bag systems but apparently there is not a recall on the 2009 models. I am not paying $2,500 to repair sensors in the passenger seat. This seems to be a malfunction of the product that should be addressed by the manufacturer.

Passenger airbag light keep going on and off while on a trip 150 miles away from home. Called the dealer service dept. And they said they could lower the sensor to recognize me (104 lbs) to make an appt. Called on 7/21/14 to schedule apt and was told by someone else that it was against the law to lower the weight sensors and that nothing could be done. Dangerous and ridiculous.

I have a 2009 Nissan Rogue. Bought it used from year, at about 55000-60000 miles the air bag light starts to flash with no incident before. I went to the dealer he found a b1018 code and says my front seat sensor is no good. Needs to replace the front seat assembly, and wants 3000$ for that. I looked in the web and saw this is a serious problem with the Rogue. And they had some recalls because of that. I find it hard to believe they could locate all the bad sensors the used so probably I got a bad sensor to start with. Don't know what to do now with the car. Any suggestions? help? I think Nissan should bare the cost of this problem.

Passenger 2 airbag light at times does not register when my 74 lb daughter is sitting in the seat but it will register if my purse is in the seat. At times it will flash on and off then stay off. Yesterday 5/6/14 I ran errands then when I went to get my daughter from school. The check engine (malfunction indication light as called in vehicle book) came on. I took the vehicle to auto zone and the test shows its the oxygen sensor. Was advised to check upstream & downstream sensors as well as catalytic converter since these can cause damage to it as well. I should mention the employee telling me this built Nissan vehicles for 23 yrs. Today I have an appt at the Nissan dealership. I've only had this vehicle 3 months = not happy.

While traveling with an 85 pound passenger in the passenger seat the passenger side airbag light will illuminate for approximately 10-15 minutes indicating that the passenger side airbag is "off". It will then flicker back on and off again. The passenger is not moving around in the seat, and seatbelt is use properly. I tested my theory that the airbag light was malfunctioning by having a 50 pound child sit in the seat, without movement, while the car was stationary. The light came on, again indicating that the passenger side airbag was "off" and then within 2-3 minutes flickered back into the "on" setting indicating that it would deploy if in a wreck. I contacted the dealership to ask of weight restriction and although they didn't know the information off hand, I am to take it in for service.

The contact owns a 2010 Nissan Rogue. The contact stated that while driving approximately 65 mph, the passenger's side air bag warning indicator illuminated intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the front passenger's side occupancy sensor was reprogrammed. The failure persisted after the repair. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer for the second time where the contact was informed that the entire air bag system would need to be replaced due to the faulty front passenger's occupancy sensor. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 60,000.

Air bag light came on, and remains on. I took the vehicle to the dealer, and they said it would cost $1,800 to repair, an indicator in the passenger seat was not working. I did ask about recalls, and they stated there were none. It seems there may have been a recall under NHTSA campaign number 08v521000. However, my VIN was not included in the recall because "the part was manufactured at a different plant". I believe as the same part is malfunctioning in the same vehicle recall, it was also manufactured incorrectly, and Nissan north America should repair it as a part of that recall.

I noticed air bag light flashing in dash panel about a month ago. Had the car serviced at firestone, suggested I take it to a dealer. I also noticed the passenger seat air bag sensor says "pass airbag not on" even when I have a passenger. I did a computer search to see what the problem could be (possibly minor, take it to autozone). Unfortunately, there are quite a few Rogue owners that had the same issue, and also saw a recall (08v521000). When I phoned Nissan north America, they said my Rogue was not in the recall because it was manufactured "elsewhere". I took it to the dealer, who gave me an estimate of $1,800 to repair!!!!!!! are you kidding me??? I believe it may have been manufactured "elsewhere", but the defective part was made at the same place, and should be covered under the recall. I have owned this vehicle since I got it from the dealer at the beginning of 2009. No accidents. I'm the owner and driver. ".

The car was not in an accident. The airbag indicator light had come on so I took the vehicle to andy mohr Nissan in avon indiana to have it checked. The shop diagnosis was that the front passenger seat airbag sensor had malfunctioned and needed to be replaced. Evidently, the sensor is imbedded in the bottom seat cushion requiring the replacement of the cushion. Without replacement, the airbag will not engage. The estimated cost of repair was over $3,200, and the car had just fallen out of warranty by 350 miles. The cost of this seat cushion including labor is roughly one-third of the value of the vehicle. Through an internet search, I found out that there was a recall on these 2008 Rogues for this very problem. I contacted the dealership and was told that they would look into it. I later received a call informing me that although these vehicles were recalled, our VIN number did not show up in the recall. I find it hard to believe that the one problem that we have had with this car is the same as those recalled, but ours is not on the list. This puts us in a no win situation. First, it makes the vehicle dangerous. Second, we cannot afford to spend one third of the value of the car to fix this safety issue. Third, it kills the resale value of the car since we will have to make any potential buyer aware of the issue.

Twice during April 2014 my 2008 Rogue was at the dealer to diagnose why passenger airbag light would not shut off. Was told by dealer that the code was in the past tense and they could not do any diagnostic testing since it was not an active code (b1018). Without doing any testing, I was told that to fix the problem they would need to replace the passenger front seat cushion ($2,500). Was told that Nissan recall 2008-10-07 did not apply to my vehicle. Filed a complaint with Nissan USA consumer affairs on 4/22/14 and requested that my vehicle be included in the recall since Nissan is aware of problems with airbags in the 2008 Nissan Rogues. Nissan refused my request and stated that airbags are secondary safefty equipmet and they would not fix the defect since seat belts are considered the primary safety feature. At this point I don't know if my airbag system is even operational since the light remains illuminated. Nissan has issued recalls on the Rogue and other models for defective airbags so I think the problem is impacting more vehicles than they realize and I don't feel I should be paying out of pocket to repair. What more can I do to get Nissan to step up and fix the problem?.

The manufacturer was notified who stated the same. The vehicle had not been repaired. The failure and current mileage was 112,000.

Airbag system goes off (indicator light come on) while having a passenger weight about 115lb in the front passenger seat. Called Nissan and was told the weight limit for sensor to come on is around 110lb. Service person suggested shifting the position or posture of the passenger would resolve. It is bad idea to have your love ones who is round 110 lb not to be able to sit in the front. Nissan should have brought this up before we bought the car.

Nhtsa previously conducted a recall on 2008 Nissan Rogues for problems with the passenger seat sensor not connecting properly with the srs, making the srs indicator flash and rendering the passenger airbag useless. I purchased my Rogue used a little over a year ago, and when the problem arose, checked your database to find if there was a recall. The Nissan customer service folks tell me that my VIN is not associated with the recall. A brief search on google hoping to help me figure out how much this repair would cost, indicates that I am not the only Rogue owner affected by this. I wonder if the recall was sufficiently broad. It is possible that this malfunctioned on its own, but wanted to make you aware.

My wife and I leased a 2008 Nissan rouge two years ago. An issue has since transpired. In October of 2009 we noticed that the passenger airbag light occasionally goes on regardless of the size of the person sitting there. This light indicates that the airbag is off. We took it to Nissan and they could not duplicate the problem. Over this last year the issue continues to arise. I decided to take the vehicle in this past Monday with a routine check. Prior to my dropping the vehicle off I decided to record it on my phone as we were driving seeing as though I could not bring the car to the dealership as soon as it was happening. After the car was there for a few hours, I got a call back saying that there is nothing wrong with the car and they are ready to release. I am still not comfortable driving the vehicle so I left it there and call customer affairs. Finally after 4 days, they returned my call. They indicated that they spoke to the shop and are not authorizing any repairs or paying for the rental vehicle as they could not duplicate the problem. They are refusing to fix this issue and are saying that my 125 lb wife may be too light to activate the bag sensor.

The passenger side airbag light would occasionally comes off indicating deactivation while the seat is occupied and while driving or stopping. Passengers (me or my wife usually) are about 119 pounds and usually set in the middle of the seat. The deactivation light would sometimes stay on then off while driving or until the car is turned off. Nissan has changed the car front seat cushion on 24april2010. The problem still occurs more often than before. I contact Nissan ([xxx]). Nissan rep would not return my call. [xxx]asked me to take the car to the deal first then call him back. I did and left many messages. I got no reply back. I want this issue fixed before warranty is over. This is a major safety issue. Please help me.

The passenger air bag light intermittently indicates that the passenger air bag is off while the seat is occupied by an adult. This is the same problem for which a recall was issued for 2007-2008 Nissan Rogues and many other Nissan models. The Nissan service department cannot find the problem.
