    how to disable airbag.

    Hi, im entering D1NZ on this Saturday and just in case, i wanna disable airbag so in case of crashing, it dosent blow.
    Is removing the airbag fuse good enough to disable it?
    If I crash and if i wanna put fuse back in, do i need to check the sensors before putting the fuse back in?

    Why would you take it out?? Do you have to as part of the regs??

    I would have thought taking the fuse out would do the trick

    i dont think you can disable it, only way i know is to get aftermarket steering wheel with nismo boss kit


    if you disconnect the airbag and connect the battery you will get the airbag light on the dash forever untill you bring the car to Nissan

    This works on the S14. Worth a try

    Within 7 seconds of turning the ignition on (position II) press the drivers door switch at least 5 times this puts you into the diag mode, the airbag light should flash in a series of long and short flashes, count the short ones.

    0 All OK
    2 Drivers airbag module circuit fault
    7 Diag sensor fault
    8 Passenger airbag module fault
    9 More than 2 faults present

    Then ignition off wait a few seconds then back on and within 7 seconds of turning the ignition on press the drivers door switch at least 5 times this puts you into user mode.

    When you go back into user mode it will cancel any errors in the diagnostic unit memory and if the system is OK and it was just a glitch the light will stay out, if there really is a problem it will start flashing again.

    Mine started flashing when my battery was low on charge, I think the low V screwed up the self diagnostics it runs when you start the car. I did the above and got "all OK" so reset it and it's been OK since.

    All hail the Mighty Tech Manual
    If that doesn't fix it, then yes, its a visit to Nissan as it'll need a Consult reset.

    I just want to confirm that Nicely's method works if the ABS light starts flashing. Mine did when i disconnected it looking for the dash rattle.

    In my experience the ABS light should go off when you reconnect it. Don't have to reset anything.
    You might have a problem with your ABS.

    I disconnected it while the car was running!! I tried it again with the car off and it didnt do it so I doubt theres anything wrong with it.
