A little while ago the airbag light on my 1996 Nissan Maxima started flashing. My regular mechanic told me that the airbag was fine, if needed it would deploy, and that the issue was most likely electrical. This is where the problem begins. He said that to turn the light off would require removing a few electrical components, it would take a lot of time, and eventually would require a specific electronic device to access the module for the light and turn it off.
Now, I do trust this mechanic, he's been taking care of the car for 7 years now, got 180,000 miles out of it so far. I am just worried that there might be an easier fix that he would not be familiar with.
Anyone know much about the electrical controls of the airbag in the mid-90's Maxima?
(Side note, I would love to add the tags "airbag" and "warning-light" but I don't have the necessary reputation to create them.)
