Just verified this procedure worked on my 2002 Nissan Maxima after installing a new model steering wheel and airbag.
- Turn key into “ON” position (but do not start the car)
- Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.
- Wait 3 seconds
- Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.
- Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset
