Flashing Airbag light

I installed 3 gauges (in a tri-piller housing left of windsheild) in my 98 mustang gt. I had to pull out stock dash gauge cluster to wire it. After reinstalling stock gauges, the airbag light flashes for a moment after starting then remains lit. I had negitive batt. dissconnected entire time while installing. When I pulled stock gauges out again I could not find any loose wires and fuses are all good. What could cause flashing airbbag light and how do i Fix?

When you disconnected the battery you set a code in the airbag diagnostic module (loss of system voltage), you will have ot manually clear the code out to turn out the light.

Hi Randy, If there is no movement when shorting the electrical cable to the body, it seems there is an open circuit between the gauge and sender unit. The problem is wiring. Regards John

Installing temperature gauge 1999 Mustang 3.8L


Congrats. Sarcasm is free.
I didn't see a question, so let's play the guessing game.

Air temp?
Water temp?
Oil temp?
Trans temp?
Your temp?

Do you need to know how to mount a gauge to the dash?
Do you need to know where to run the power wire for gauge light?
Do you need to know where to install the sensor on intake and or engine?
Do you need to borrow some tools?

I feel better after unloading sarcasm.

Now, I'm going to assume it's water temp.

if it's electronic, you can just remove the stock sensor wire from on/near the waterneck/thermostat housing and plug in the new wire.

If it's mechanical, you will need to install the new probe into a port where it can contact the water.

On my old 3.8 (1997) I changed to an aftermarket waterneck that had a spot to screw in a temp probe.

On my 2003 gt, I haven't upgraded gauges yet, but the water sensor is on the front passenger side of the intake. I will add a pic of my gt so you can see the placement.

With this type, you can just add your wires to it (splice them in) and keep both the stock gauge & the aftermarket.
Or just remove the stock wire, then the stock sensor, then install the new stuff.
it's the black wire near the alternator. (almost center right of the pic to the right of the pink fuel injector)

My air bag light just started coming on if i restart vehicle it goes out may stay off 2-3 days then back on...if i pull fuse under dash it also kills gauges---2000 f taurus


he light comes on because the airbag computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool. You then need to have the cause repaired by a trained technician. The airbag system is not a safe place for do it you selfers.

Trying to replce dash lights on speedomoter on a


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove the two screws on the underside of the dash cowl.
2. Pull off the trim bezel that surrounds the gauge cluster and dash assembly by pulling it forward with your hands.
3. Remove the four screws that hold the gauge cluster in place.
4. Slide the gauge cluster forward, and remove the electrical plugs from the back of the cluster.
5. Replace the bulbs that are blown. Turn each bulb counterclockwise to unlock it from the dash cluster assembly, then pull the bulb straight out of the housing. Insert the new bulb, align the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the back of the cluster and turn it clockwise to lock it into the housing.
6. Reassemble the dash. Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Post comments for more help or information........

Good Luck!!
