Question about 1997 Ford Contour

Open Question

Diagram of 'main' fuse box showing where the lever is so I can open it.

Recently I had an accident caused by faulty air bags deploying. I need to find the exact relays and fuses so I can remove the bags and shut off the horn and any other sensor that sounds off when I connect the battery cables. I have a manual, but it's too involved to make sense out of. I've located the boxes, but I can't find the lever on the main box that opens it. I've managed to find the fuse for the horn, but when I removed it, my stereo, clock and overhead lights also went out. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you

SOURCE: AIR BAG LIGHT IS ON

You have to have a scanner to read codes, but it could very possibly be a seatbelt has fired, generally the one that does will be shorter than the other one, unless of course you had a passenger then they both would be retracted.

Car horn not working


Often times when the air bags deploy the horn buttons are damaged,the quick solution would be to install a push button to ground the horn wire. Just hook one side of the button to ground and the other to the horn wire.

Airbag fuse


It could be the fuse but is more than likely a fault with some other part of the system. You'll need to scan the system and se wha the fault codes are. When the airbag light is on it won't deploy in an accident so be sure to get it checked asap.

My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?


Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

Air bag light on for ford 2001 suddenly


Be careful. You do not want the air bag to deploy on you suddenly. Check the air bag fuse on the vehical, it may need to be replaced. If your air bags have been deployed recently, the lights do not turn off until the dealer turns them off for you.

Air bags will most of the time don't deploy on side impacts, only on frontal impacts they mostly are made to deploy since that's the direction of the car on to which most of the accident will occur. The air bags are just a supplementary device and not a restraint like the seat belt that is use to keep you in your car.

My 2005 gmc envoy airbags did not deploy on impact or even when the firefighters tried to deploy them... what the hell is this? my kids could've been in the vehicle.


If the airbag light had been on so long that it bunrt out then the light wouldnt be on to tell you they wont work. If the SRS fuse was blown or removed the airbags and the light won't work. If the car had been repaired by a less than honest repairman and the airbags were replaced with dummies that trick the light to being out.. The SRS bags are expensive and the triggers and the wiring are all supposed to be replaced if the bags were deployed in an accident. A dual bag system that has been deployed can cost $4000 to replace correctly, never mind the other work thats required to make the car safe and roadworthy. A car facts report may find the person thats responsable for the less than complete repair. If any senser or air bag doesnt complete the circuit to the controller the warning light SRS or AIRBAG orange or yellow will be on and the bags with the light on will not work. I hope everything comes out OK as to find this out you had to be in a hard accident and the fireman has been trained to protect the wreaker and rescue peaple by causing the air bags to deploy if they didn't. So the bags cant hurt them as they work to remove the busted car from the crash site

Airbag light flashes four or five time then pauses and repeats.


The automatic air bag sensor is tested EVERYTIME to start the car/van. Your system has detected a failure in the Air Bag deployment sensor. It is not dangerous... but the air bag with the faulty sensor will not deploy in an accident.

Fuse for AIr Bags


air bags are not fused. The fuse is a link that blows on the circuit board of the airbag diagnostic monitor whenever the system is deployed in an accident, so to replace the fuse u replace the airbag monitor module.
