Air Bag Light flashing and fail codes.

95 Maxima, V6 and Manual. Can anyone instruct on how to reset the air bag warning light controller? We removed all airbags to fix an electrical problem. Now the light flashes. On older Infinity it was a combination of key strokes and door switch engagements.

Does anyone have a translation for ECU fail codes? What is 77? We want a list of all...

For the ECU codes, you can use this web site:
http://boredmder.com/ecucodes/index.php

Select the year of your car and enter in the 77 as 0707. The program will tell you that the code is the rear heated oxgen sensor. It also gives you the OBD II code, which in this case is P0136.

You can also get this information from the Nissan FSM, section EC. Within the first 5 pages or so is a chart that has the OBD II codes and the ECU blinking code.

If you don't have a FSM, you can download one from here:

Does having the blown air bags in the car matter to resetting the light? (stupid question im sure..)

It's a good thing you mentioned that you have a V6 in your Maxima, otherwise we wouldn't have been able to assist you.

This is a two second google search but I'm feeling nice today.
Open Driver Door.

Get In.

Shut Door.

Turn ignition to the ON position.
(all the way, but do not start car).

Open Door.

Reach down with your left hand and
Press the door ajar sensor button (7) times.
(on Infinity I30 button covered in rubber)

Shut Door.

Start your car...

This should reset the airbag lamp and it will stop blinking.

No problem, this is the same thing that worked for me about a month ago, I wouldn't have recommended it otherwise. It gives me peace of mind to know that my airbags are functional without that light flashing.
