This post hasn’t got much to do with Hoyas, or any plants for that matter, but was a popular post before Molly’s was upgraded, so I thought I’d include it again.

How to Reset a Nissan Almera Warning Light
- Moving a front seat forward
- Accidentally knocking the sensor
- Knocking the wires
- Ramming stuff into your glove box
Nissan Almera Airbag Light Fault
It’s great that your light is flashing as you now know there may be a problem with your car, so off you go to check the wires and connections to find the fault. You then do one of two things. You either find the fault, or in most cases you cannot find a fault. You see, that’s the problem with Nissan Almera Airbag Warning Lights – they frequently go wrong!
Whatever the outcome of your search, you will notice one really annoying thing. The light keeps flashing!
If your warning light hasn’t started to irritate you yet, it will.
Your airbag warning light staying on is not only annoying, but it can be distracting too.
Resetting a Nissan Almera Airbag Warning Light
Just follow these simple steps to reset the airbag warning light.
- Put your key in the ignition and turn it until the dashboard lights come on. Do not start the engine.
- Press the button on the inside of the door (pictured below) 5 times before the airbag warning light comes on (you have about 5 seconds so don’t panic).
- Turn the key all the way off as soon as the airbag light goes off.
- Wait a second (I always hear a quiet click from somewhere in the font of the car) then turn your key back to show the lights as before.
- Wait until the airbag warning light goes off, then immediately turn the key back.
- Repeat a few times (usually no more than 5)
- Turn your ignition on and look at the airbag warning light. If it has gone, please leave me a nice comment. If not, repeat these steps a couple of times.
- If the light continues to flash, or you have any doubts, consult a Nissan technician.
I Love My 2003 (53) Nissan Almera
I am writing this post from experience and you can judge my success by the fact that I had to use a picture from the internet for the airbag light image – I have successfully turned mine off so can’t take a photo of the real thing! Let me know if this post helps you.
Consult a Nissan Technician
Please be aware that I am NOT a mechanic and in no way advocate neglecting to speak to a trained technician. I am however, very relieved to have reset my own airbag warning light and want to share this with you. If you have any doubts, please do not substitute my advice for professional expert help. If you fail to reset it within a few attempts, contact your local garage as there may be a more serious fault than just a sensor being out of kilter.
To everyone that commented on the original post – thank you for your interest and I am very pleased to have helped make your life slightly less stressful!
