    Which is the same.

    Disconnect the battery over night and come back to it again in the morning.

    Cheers mate, I did disconnect battery for about 4 hours, but when I went back to it it was the same, will leave disconnected over night hoping that is going to solve it. :(

    Thanks for the advice anyway guys!

    If still not reset by the morning, try the ECU reset procedure, then try starting the Airbag reset from scratch.

    Stress over, just thought I'd post incase someone else comes across the same problem.

    Silly me, I did the reset went inside for a cuppa, & the key was still in ignition, & the sat nav screen stays on & killed my battery lol!

    If anyone finds this searching for airbag warning reset procedure for the N15..
    Turn on ignition with driver's door open. Within 7 seconds press door-frame switch 5 times. Turn ignition off. Repeat once more. Done.

    I've tried this and my car enters diagnosis mode. Does this mean there is a definite actual problem?

    Yanked out my driver side seat belt to clean it a few months back. I pulled the plug to disconnect the airbag and upon re installing the airbag light began blinking.

    I tried the playing with the door switch method with no success.

    Eventually I found a vid on youtube with a tutorial. It involved something with the ignition on and off a few times, flooring the accelerator pedal 5 times or something then the ignition again and the light went off. I will look for it later or during the weekend.

    This worked perfectly for me on a 2004 Almera S so thanks shockwave. Only looked into this as my car failed its MOT due to this fault.
    Only slightly annoying thing is that the light has been flashing for about a year (think it was triggered when I replaced my battery) and yet it could of been solved so quickly and easily lol.
