SOURCE: airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated

Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

You should take the vehicle to a certified dealer immediately; Your airbag could deploy prematurely causing serious injury or death!

SOURCE: Airbag light flashes then stays on in our 2002 Ford Explorer.

Safety Belt pre-tensioner Status (Driver pre-tensioner Circuit Fault).
On the seat belt buckle there is a pre-tensioner that when vehicle is involved in an accident it will deploy and pull the belt tighter.

If the vehicle has never been involved in an accident it could be what we call terminal fretting which is just a build up on the terminals which cause a open circuit. Usually just unplugging and reconnecting the connector a couple of times will fix this.

If this doesn't correct it I would recommend having your local dealer look at it.

SOURCE: The airbag sensor light on my 97 ford escort has started blinking

You would have to replace the monitor. If you get one from a salvage yard MAKE sure it is the same one,that the engineering numbers match on the module.They all look alike and will plug in but if you install the wrong one it will deploy the air bags.Been there done that got a t-shirt.
Now what concerns me is how the code 51 got set. The thermal fuse is controlled by the microprocessor inside the air bag diagnostic monitor. The microprocessor inside the air bag diagnostic monitor will open the thermal fuse whenever a short on the deployment circuits occurs. The thermal fuse does not open because of excessive current flowing through it. You stated you have not had a deployment so could you have maybe hooked battery up backwards or installed jumper cables backwards when trying to jump start it? If you do not find what caused the short it will do the same thing again.

SOURCE: airbag dash light flashing code 51

Common fault on FORD

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

The flashing lights are indicating that there ia problem setting up the airbags at time of iginiton. The problem could be a simple sensor switch in the passender or drive's seat or wiring connection to the seneor or computer or it could actually be the airbag not being detected by the computer. Usually these problem come up in areas where there is high ambient air humidity. suggest a visit to dealersip for a diagnosis of the problem.

Ford 2001 F150 pickup truck beeps approx 5-6 times every 5 minutes. Think i has to do with the airbag.


Yes you are correct, it is an airbag problem./

The Airbag indicator lamp is burnt out, and a flash code is waiting.
Radio shack ( or similar ) should still have the replacement bulb for it.

Once you put it back in, the airbag lamp will flash a code that is a number, t ( ie flash 3 times ) then another number ( ie flash 5 times ). You will need that code for the next step in the diagnoses. Don't be alarmed if you get 10 sets of 3 flashes, that is actually a LFC ( Light Flash Code ) 33

Airbag passenger side


44 - Right Hand Radiator Primary Crash Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly.

When the Airbag light is blinking, your airbag is disabled and many insurance companies now do a diagnostics on any failed safety equipment in injury accidents....they will not pay 100% percent if there is owner's negligence to maintain vehicle safety equipment. I am still looking into possible causes for this error. I will post any updates as warranted.
