Flashing airbag light on Ford Escort 1996?

Replacement Airbags For your Vehicle

Air bag flashing constantly since I have had it – it flashes with a frequency of 4 then pause, 4 then pause etc …

I understand this is related to the seatbelt pre-tensioners. I have tried the following without success:

* disconnecting, cleaning and reconnecting the yellow plugs under the seats on both sides. I didn´t wait any amount of time – I just cleaned and re-connected immediately. I don´t know if this would make a difference …
* Various reset procedures that involve turning the key on, waiting for light to flash then turning off, repeating 2 more times. Some forums say this sometimes resets things.

Does anyone have any ideas.

* Also, to avoid confusion, I am aware that ideally i should take it to garage but I have no intention of doing so in the immediate future. I only want to know if anyone knows how to fix this in ´DIY´ fashion.
SUCCESS … I have disconnected both plugs under each seat and cleaned as best I could and then sprayed with WD40. Initially there was no change but after returning to the car 3 hours later, the light is no longer flashing!

Try a pair of second hand pre tensioners as one of yours may be faulty.
All it would take is for one of the wires to have a break in it under the insulation.

    it is not a good idea to fix these things by yourself. i have seen airbags go off randomly as people mess about with these systems, sometimes even when they are driving. if you can’t see any broken wires i don’t recommend trying to fix it yourself. 🙂
