    If I knew these things had G sensors my college days may have been more interesting! Anyway, this code came up today. Looking at schematics, for a 2001, the sensor is somewhere under the center console. Is this true for a manual? Anyone need to replace this before and can tell me where it is? HA! Same question I used to ask in college!

    It's on the transmission tunnel behind the cup holders. Block box about 6x6.

    And what does this thing do? It's in the neighborhood of $100. The light comes on once in awhile. When I turn the truck off, it clears and doesn't come back for a few days or more. Doesn't seem too urgents since it's intermittent.

    It's either used to trigger your seat belt pretensioners in the event of a collision, or it measures lateral G in conjunction with a steering input sensor to activate stability control (do the first gens even have that? The stability control in the 2nd gens is pretty crude). It's pretty important. Check with your local Nissan dealer, because I think (not sure) that seat belt and airbag stuff is covered for the lifetime of the vehicle. They don't want any lawsuits related to failed safety equipment.

    It's part of the airbag system. Only some 04s had VDC. Either way, it should be replaced if defective.
