There is a TSB for 98-99 for faulty side air bag modules. Apparently, quite a few on the org has this problem. As is the case with TSB's, coverage beyond the warrantee period is assumed not to be the case but if you contact Nissan corporate customer service, it is possible they may cover the costs out of good will. My dad is currently awaiting word to see if they will.
The dealer will charge you about $80-100 just to pull codes from the SRS system. Airbag modules cost $400 or more.
Some minor codes can be cleared by putting the SRS system in diagnostic mode: open driver's door, put key in and turn to on, press rubber door open button 5 times within 7 sec. of "on". You may see the airbag light start blinking codes and it may or may not ultimately stop. Turn key to off. Some codes require a special SRS scan tool to reset stored codes but if there is a component fault (as is the case with the aforementioned TSB) the light will return.
One good thing though is that the air bag is considered a major component with Nissan. As such there is a 5-yr component warranty. Call your local Stealership, I mean Dealership, and see if you might be in luck.
