  1. Hi everyone! Just wandering if the 1999 Skyline GTT r34's are affected by the huge takata airbag recall? I've had a look around and couldn't find anything =\
  2. Hi all, I'm new here. Prior posts have been very helpful on other topics, but I can't find much about this. I bought a 1991 (series 2) R32 GT-R with a factory steering wheel with airbag. I have some concerns since the airbag is 27 years old, and because it's ugly. Fist of all, does anyone know about the quality / safety of these airbags? Do these early airbags have a lifespan? Do you think it's safer to keep it active or unplug it? Also, does anyone know if the R32 had an airbag indicator or warning light? All newer cars with airbags do, but I can't seem to find one on the R32. What I'd really like to do is swap the R32 steering wheel for a newer one with an airbag. Does anyone know if the R34 factory steering wheel would fit? I would need it to work with HICAS, the horn, and the airbag. I would love to put a R34 GT-R or GTT wheel (see below) on if everything would fit and work properly. Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, I've scoured the web and found little or no information on whether my impoted 2008 V36/370GT coupe is fitted with a Takata airbag that is listed on the recall register. I just want to get your feedback/advise to make absolutely sure. I checked here: https://rightcar.govt.nz/airbagrecall.html http://www.ironchefimports.com/2017/07/24/takata-airbag-recall-for-dummies/ https://www.nhtsa.gov/equipment/takata-recall-spotlight https://www.productsafety.gov.au/recalls/compulsory-takata-airbag-recall/takata-airbag-recalls-list Thanks all
  4. Hi Guys, Thought I would write up a tutorial, as I just finished changing the clock spring in my M35. This is the most common cause of the Airbag error light flashing on the dash in modern Nissans. First of all, the disclaimer - you take on any work at your own risk, I'm in no way responsible for damage to you or your car if you attempt this. If you don't know how to do mechanical stuff, this probably isn't for you. We are dealing with an airbag, which contains explosive material and mishandling will set it off and break your face. Right? Backstory: OK, I have a flashing airbag error light. Unfortunately my error code reading system wouldn't read the airbag errors, only BCM and ECU related codes. So off I go to my friendly Nissan Dealer. Plugged into CONSULT, I get a B1049 Drivers Airbag module Open code. My friendly Nissan Tech explains the most common fault from this is the Clock Sping, which is the unit that keeps the airbag electrically connected while you are swinging the wheel back and forth. In fact, by chance he has to do one on a Pathfinder that arvo (it's that common...). Looked up the part in FAST, and ordered it. The cost is around the $180 mark incl GST from the dealership. 2 week wait ex Japan. On to the fitting! The only special tool you will need is a 6 pointed T30 security torx style thingo. This is to undo the airbag in the very first step. The entire process shouldn't take you more than about 1 hour. Took me a little longer taking photos and finding out shit along the way. FIRST STEP- Park the car on a level place, with the steering centred. Turn car off. ****DISCONNECT THE BATTERY**** this is very important cause you don't want the airbag to go off in your face. Drain the system of any residual charge via the horn, interior lights, etc etc. Undo the two security torx bolts that hold in the airbag. The airbag will slide out towards you. Point it away from you. Look at the back of the airbag, using a small flathead screwdriver, gently raise the black tab on the plug, and pull the yellow connector out. Place the airbag somewhere out of the way, with the nissan badge facing upwards, not near any electrical charge. Next unplug the yellow earth, and grey plug. Using a 19mm socket, loosen the steering wheel nut, but don't remove it completely. Pull the steering wheel towards you, this will require force, and a bit of a wiggle (or a puller if you have one...). Place the steering wheel aside. This is what it will look like On the underside, remove the two phillips screws, and the cover will split in half Now the clock spring is held on by two Phillips screws, either side, at the 8 and 4 positions. Remove the large plug from the top left if the unit, and once you have taken the screws out, remove the two plugs on the bottom of the unit, one yellow, one grey. There is a small clip on the top of the unit to hold it in place, depress and remove it. It will then come off into your hands. You will have to change over the stalks onto the new unit. this is done by depressing two clips on either side of the stalk and pulling it out. It has a little plug that will guide you. Put them back onto your new clock spring, making sure the clip into place, and the plugs are fully seated. Notice the new clock spring has a plastic guard over the plug. The clock spring comes pre-centred. Do not remove this until you are ready to place the steering wheel back onto the clock spring. This ensures it works for the range of motion of the wheel, and isn't 360 degrees out of alignment. To put your new assembly back on, plug in the three plugs, and tighten the two Phillips screws. Put the yellow airbag plug through the hole in the steering wheel, and plug the yellow earth, and grey steering wheel control plug back in. Make sure you put the steering wheel back on straight- there are guide markings. Tighten the 19mm nut firmly. Tuck the wires back into their holders. Carefully replace the airbag plug, and depress the black clip to secure the plug. Slide the airbag unit back onto the wheel, and secure it via the two torx fittings. Connect your battery, and go and turn your ignition on, but make sure you are not sitting in the drivers seat ( do it from outside the car, incase you have farked up...). Nothing explodes...? Good. Check all your stalk functions and horm works ok. Now, to clear the flashing light, follow the steps found in other posts, which is basically turn ign on, as soon as you see the airbag light go off, turn ign off, wait 5 secs turn ign on again, repeat this 4 or 5 times. Start the car and the airbag light should not be flashing. Have a beer.
  5. M35 Airbag Woes Hi all, Been a while since I've posted on SAU. Recently picked up a beautiful example of an M35, and it has been flawless aside from this one minor issue. It's intermittently throwing an airbag code and flashing the light on the dash. It first happened the day I bought it home and the wife jumped in the car with me. We had been to a couple of places that morning already, and it wasn't until we were halfway between one place and another that the light came on. I took the car to work and plugged it in to read and clear the code. All was then fine until Friday just gone, where I had 2 passengers in the car, and I had been out and about with them for a couple of hours. It was only on the way home with the same people sitting in the same seats that the light started flashing again. Back to work today, and I plugged it in to read the code this time. Once again, it's the same code.. Both times the code is appearing under DTC history, so it's only active when there's someone sitting there. I'm assuming it's something to do with the passenger seat at the front. Ideally, I'd like to properly fix this, but failing that, I'm willing to do the resistor trick to sort it out. Can anyone point me in the right direction of the wiring/plug/sensor that is causing this? Cheers, Ben
  6. R34 airbag Hey everybody, I found the cause for my flashing air bag light the passenger airbag isn't plugged in, I think the plug has been chopped off, I'll attach a photo, if anybody can confirm that this is the right wire that would be much help! Also if I was to attach a new plug, there are two wires, does it matter which wire goes where? Thanks
  7. 09 Maxima - airbag, horn not working (already replace clock spring!) So, as the title says... mum's 09 maxima has been playing up a bit - the horn didn't work, the airbag light on the dash blinks red. however, the cruise control and stereo controls work fine. Only 50,000km. Pretty good power out of the 3.5L, just a pity it's fwd! First thing I figured was the clock spring had gone bad. Picked up a replacement one (from a wreckers), disconnected the battery, took off the airbag & wheels, changed over the clock spring - same problem. No horn and a blinking airbag light. Any suggestions on where to go next?
