That is the "S" sensor, located under the dash between the defroster vents, the dash has to come out, it might have bad connections going to the module ( blue box) located under the dash around the steering column.

Air bag light is blinking

Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

The 2002 Ford Ranger XLT airbag light blinks

The airbag is there, what's most likely wrong is the key switch may be going bad. Take your Ranger to a reputable mechanic and ask them to check it...unless you have an OBD II or a multimeter.

How can i stop airbag light from blinking while driving

Your airbag light blinking is telling you that something is wrong within the airbag system. The blinking is giving a code, it will blink x amount of times, then pause and again blink x amount of times. Example it blinks 3 times, then a pause, and then blinks 2 times, means the code is 32.

After you get the code you can find out what the problem is, and what exactly needs to be repaired. If you're not experienced with airbag systems, it is best to have it serviced by a professional.

I hope this helps you, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Airbag light

This is a common problem on the escape. It can be solved by unplugging the connector for the airbag underneath the seat and then re-plugging it back in. It is the wire that tells the airbag that the seat belt is latched in. I had this problem and it worked for me.
