kiss your alternator good-bye.
nah. It's not your alternator.. I had my Airbag light blinking and did that 7 door jam dome light push thingee in 5 secs and it reset my airbag... I had a 1,000watt system with no capacitor during and after the airbag blinking incident for 9 months.. and my alternator didn't go.

The alternator warning system makes the battery and engine? light blink or come on..

but try that door jam button thingee.. you have to put your ignition to the ACC position then press the door jam dome light button about 7 times within 5 secs.. immediatly after pushing it for the 7th time... you will see the airbag light go away.

I believe that is the exact way of doing it.. I may be wrong tho.. but not by much.

He's confused with the brake light - that's what flashes when the alt is going.

I just tried the door jamb thingie too, and it didn't work for me. Maybe I did it wrong, I don't know, I think I'm just going to take the dash out....AGAIN....and remove the bulb. That light is kinda annoying.

im proff that it works....that light was on for me for like 5 months...then i asked here....
first....sit in ur car...drivers side....keep one leg out.....left...
with ur left hand locate the door domelight switch....
the little black button that looks like a switch with a black rubber around it....its on the frame of the car not the door....
once uve found that.....stick ur key in the ignition....
open the switch as if ur just chillin and just wanna listen to the radio....once u open the switch without turning on the car......
and all the lights turn on ..on ur dash..."engine light,airbag,oil..etc" tap that button 7 times as fast as u can....
or better yet ...just tap it as fast as u can....it will go away....then close the switch and open it again of course ur airbag light will light up...as well all the others.... but once u turn on ur car ull see after 10 seconds it will go away....thats how it worked for me....
ive heard it work for plenty of first gens.....good luck...

anyone ever think it could mean the airbags need servicing and by bypassing the switch you are just doing what a mechanic would do after fixing the airbag? Just a thought. hope noone dies.

fuck, my airbag light has been on for years. i took it in like 10 times, they fixed it and a week later it came back on. i said screw it, i took the bulb out. but of course this disabled the tachometer (bastards!) so I put it back but taped it up out of its socket so you can't see it flash ;-)

Did the door dome light switch thing on my daughter's 94 Altima and it worked! The airbag light stopped blinking. Now, my daughter thinks I'm a genius....hahaha. Thanks everyone !
