Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

Can anyone tell me why?

When the key is first turned on, the air bag control module does a complete self test of the entire air bag system – if a fault is found, the module will flash out a code which indicates where the fault is.
Common problems include the clock spring assembly located under the steering wheel and wiring concerns with the crash sensors.
When the air bag light is on – the airbag system is deactivated and will not deploy in an accident.

    something is wrong with a component of the airbag system. could be wiring or sensor or control module. get it checked out by shop. when the light is on the airbag won’t work if you get in an accident.

    Have the error code read out to start down the diagnostic tree which tells you where to test further.

    Take you car to Autozone, NAPA, or any other form of autopart store. There they have a hand held computer that plugs into your car and can tell you if something is wrong. BUT THIS ONLY WORKS IF YOUR CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON. It may work for the air bag system as well. I don’t know. I have never owned a Ford. If that doesn’t work your best bet would be to take it to a mechanic. Just be carefull. Alot of mechanic shops out there will prey on people that don’t know anything about cars and will over price them on little things. If you do take your car to the shop, tell them that all you want is your air bag system checked. This way you don’t get over charged.

    Here’s a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system.

    On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.
    The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

    This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights. See if your car is listed here.

    Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.
