Air bag light 2001 ford focus

The air bag light comes on when I start the car , but then it starts flashing. It cycles about 4 times then it just stays on . I recently replaced the seats and carpet , I took everything out out except the drivers seat for couple of days and drove the car until I got the new seats and carpet, and now its been on since . This only started after I pulled every thing out. I rechecked all the wiring under the console . Any suggestions?

The computer probably just needs reset because the seat belt warning feedback is tied in to airbag system. try disconnecting the neg battery terminal for about 5 min

My air bag light just started coming on recently what 's causing it to do that


It could be a failure of any one of the sensors, or of the entire control unit. The light itself will flash in a "code", with the number of times it flashes and then pauses. While I don't know what that "code" is, your mechanic will be able to tell you. There may be more information online if you start with the year/make/model and then try to figure out what the timing of the flashes and pause is. Sometimes the sensors can be very inexpensive, or the control unit can be bought from a salvage yard. WARNING! Working on an airbag system can be dangerous. ALWAYS remove the battery as it can trigger a bag to inflate.

Car turns over( 2001 ford focus zx3)but will not start hit a pole going slow ,air bags opened,is there somekind of resetting to do after air bags open do they make the car not start, all fuses are good ...


check your owners manual,I think your car has a fuel shut off switch.they are usually located in the trunk on the drivers side.they need to be reset if you are in an accident or when the airbags deploy.
