Arming The System


Specific to:

Nissan Altima 2007-2008

To arm the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) system turn the ignition switch to OFF position. Connect the both battery cables starting with the positive cable first.

The SRS or air bag system is equipped with a self-diagnostic operation. After turning the ignition key to the ON or START position, the AIR BAG warning lamp will illuminate for 7 seconds. After 7 seconds, the AIR BAG lamp will extinguish if no malfunction is detected. If the AIR BAG lamp does not extinguish after 7 seconds, check the SRS self-diagnostic system for a malfunction.

Specific to:

Nissan Altima 2009-2010

When the repair work is completed, re-connect both battery cables. With the brake pedal released, turn the push-button ignition switch from ACC position to ON position, then to LOCK position. (The steering wheel will lock when the push-button ignition switch is turned to LOCK position.)
