Nissan Clock Spring / Angle Sensor Replacement

In this guide, you will learn how to remove the clock spring (spiral cable) and steering angle sensor on Nissan vehicles.

  • Nissan Airbag Light On,

  • Nissan Steering Wheel Buttons don't work,
  • SRS Fault Code: Driver squib circuit open or high resistance

What you will need

Instructions

Step 1

Step 2

Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery terminal.

Step 3

Remove Torx bolts on the side of the steering wheel. Once the bolts are loose or removed the airbag can be removed. You will need to use secure torx bit with a hole in the center.

 

Unplug the wires from the back of the driver's airbag.

Watch video on how to remove Nissan airbag.

Step 4

Remove the center bolt that secures the Nissan steering wheel to the steering column. Mark the steering wheel and column before you remove the steering wheel.

Step 6

Next, you need to remove the clock spring which is held in place with several screws.

Replace the clock spring if your Nissan horn does not work

Unplug the wires from the clock spring.

In this case, the clock spring and Nissan steering angle sensor are integrated together.

Install new Nissan spiral cable/clock spring. The clock spring needs to be installed in the center position.

Don't wind up the clockspring to the left or right. Clock spring has a limited number of turns. If you turn it all the way to one side, the ribbon can't take more steering wheel turns.

This is a common mistake which causes the clock spring to fail shortly after installation.

Step 7

Watch video on how to install Nissan clock spring / spiral cable/steering angle sensor.

Step 8

Install the steering wheel and torque the center bolt to 35Nm.

Step 9

Install the steering wheel and torque the center bolt.

Step 10

Install the airbag. Connect the steering wheel button and airbag wires. Torque the bolts that secure the airbag to the steering at 10Nm.

 

Warnings

  • Do not use test equipment such as multimeters to check SRS circuits unless directed by the Shop Repair Manual. Doing so can deploy airbags.
  • Always turn ignition switch OFF, disconnect the battery negative terminal and wait at least 3 minutes before you start working on the airbag system.
  • Handle airbag module carefully. Place airbag with the pad side facing upward and always stay two feet away from the airbag.
  • When installing a clock spring (spiral cable) it needs to be the neutral position since its rotations are limited. 
  • Don't rotate the clock spring after you remove the steering wheel. If the ABS or Traction Control Light turn on, you may need to reset the steering angle sensor using a Steering Angle Sensor Reset Tool.
  • Rember to read fault codes from the SRS control unit and clear codes after replacing airbag components. You may need a Level 2 OBD2 Scanner to clear airbag codes. 

We recorded this video series on a 2017 Nissan Quest but these instruction are similar to Nissan Maxima, Altima, Murano, Titan, Qashqai, Navara, Pathfinder, Sentra and Rouge.
