Airbag light (low voltage)

I am having an issue with my airbag light on my 2009 the light flashes. I have entered diagnostics mode and tried to reset to no avail. The code is for low voltage but my battery voltage isn’t all that low 12.44 volts with engine off. The fuse for my airbag is good and I don’t see any obvious disconnected wires(such as under seat) both kick panels by door sills have come off so the wires can be seen.
Are there any obvious spots I should check for problems? I don’t want to spend a bunch of money having my mechanic chase the wiring but it drives me nuts when i see the flashing.
Any help would be amazing!

Is the 12.44 voltage low enough for this light to stay on?

My 2007 Versa air bag light came on 5 years ago. My local Nissan dealer wanted over $1000 to fix it. I did not want to pay over $1000 on a 8 years old car. Then, 3 years ago, Nissan recall the driver side airbag. I took it in for a replacement. I was hoping the replacement will turn off the airbag light. I got a call from the service adviser that I need to replace the clock spring for $450 parts and labor. I told the service adviser to replace the free airbag. Then, I found a $50 clocksrping for my Versa from Amazon.ca and instruction how to replace the 08 Versa clockspring. I change my clockspring about 2 years ago and it is still working. https://www.nissanversaforums.com/ho...ing-wheel.html

Take your Versa to auto parts store to read the airbag code to determine which airbag has the issue.
- steering wheel airbag (clockspring it located under the steering wheel)
- passenger side airbag
- side curtain airbags

May be a sensor rather than a bag. The battery volts at engine off are worthless, you need the number the alt puts out as it is higher. A momentary non-constant break in the clockspring tape can do it too.

Might check out any sensor grounds, they being bad can make that code. Any sensor wiring can too, my Ford Contour used to give fits with wire that cracked a lot around the heat of the radiator and then that code showed up. Fixing the cracked wire to improve current flow fixed it but I did it more than once.

I would say definitely not the airbag they were just replaced a month or so ago. It could be a sensor or wiring. If the clock spring was bad there would be other symptoms too correct?

Hold it a second: Your air bags were just replaced and you are not taking it back to whoever did the work...just take it back and tell them to fix whatever they messed up.

As I said: Take it back, it is part of what they were supposed to fix.

I really don’t think it was part of what they were to fix. The airbags were replaced under recall really had nothing to do with the light being on before or after the work.
