Question about 1996 Ford Escort 4 Door
The air bag light on my p reg Ford Escort is flashing, what does this mean?
It may appear if there is a particular sensor fails.
Try stopping the indication using the following technique.
Sometimes the problem could be solved.
Advantage is you could use this technique in the future too.
If you can get an OBD 2 scanner off eBay (US$ 6), you could be able to communicate with your car ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using the smart-phone app.
So that, there is a chance to CLEAR all the error indications.
After that, if problem still persists, it means the vehicle need full scan (you can't do this at home, probably seek a vehicle garage).

It is flashing a Lamp Fault Code to tell you what part of your air bag system is faulty. read the number of flashes - pause - number of flashes. Could be 1 digit code or 2 digit code.
What code is it?
