One Expensive Air Bag Module

2005 Nissan Altima Air Bag ModuleAfter a while I decided to just go ahead and shell out the $800 (not $700 as I previously thought) and get the brand new air bag module. When I ordered the module at Nissan, they told me I had to wait for it for a week. When I went to pick it up, I asked about their refund policy on it in case the module is not causing the problem my car is experiencing, they said "There isn't one". I asked, "So it's mine as soon as I walk out that door?", he goes, "more like it's already yours".

After all the time I spent fiddling with the wires, checking the resistance and checking the connectors. It is finally done.

I built a page where you can see the photos of my Altima before and after the repair. You can see it at www.mirru.com
