Does anyone know why an air bag light would go on? Mine recently went did the usually of going on and staying on for 7 seconds but then it starts flashing. It was fine this morning and it was fine around 2pm (my lunch break).

Then about 7pm, goin out to my car...i noticed i don't have my car keys...damn, i had left them in the car. anyway........Does anyone think it might be because of what did next....

Fornately I left my sunroof open (tilted up and not open "opened") so then I got a broom handle and tried to fish the keys off from where u start the car. It was in the off position so i figure i could just pull them off. anyway, broom handle was too big to fit the key ring in it. so then i broke a long tree branch off and tried to get the keys that way but then i started messin with the door and tried to hit the door lock button. fornately i hit it and the doors opened and the alarm went off and all that. I went to get gas/get a spare key made then driving home I noticed the air bag light was flashing. I've looked in the manuel and it doesn't really give a reason as to WHY the light would go off and start flashing.

Could it have been cause I was messin with sticks in through the sunroof?? Or maybe I hit/poked the steerin wheel with the stick or broom handle too hard, I don't know if i did but i know the stick and broom handle were going all over the place cuz it was kind of diffcult tryin to manuever the stick with such little grasp but then I would have had to hit the steerin wheel kind of hard i think, and i don't think i did that.

I was thinkin maybe its a fuse or something like that that might be bad? Can i repair it (whatever it is) myself?

Anyway, anyone have any ideas or what it could be please let me know

please don't mess with the airbag module!! they're expensive to replace and if you don't HAVE to replace one, don't. just take it to a nissan certified shop, preferibly the nearest nissan dealer. my airbag lite went off on my first sentra and they had to swap the whole thing.
by the way i used to sell nissan, so i speak from experience. don't risk it! your airbag may not deploy OR may deploy unexpectedly.
