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?

    Hello, can you ell me how to get the front indicator bulb out of ford escort x reg


    Now what is this X reg thing ,iam sure this a secret code used in some countries or is it some sort of message from mossad or the like,but depending on model of this escort then either the indicator light comes out by means of a spring at the back or if a complete unit with the headlight then take the headlight out .So if this a X then what does Y or W mean ?The mind boggles here with all these secret codes going around

    1997 Escort Sdn., airbag light flashes 4 times


    Pinpoint Test R: Diagnostic Trouble Code 44 — RH Radiator Primary Crash Front Air Bag Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly Normal Operation
    NOTE: Circuit 618 (BL/W) is grounded to the side of the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor case, and the case is grounded through the bracket to the vehicle at its mounting point.
    The air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) measures the resistance between pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) and pin 3 (circuit 57M [BK]), the air bag diagnostic monitor reference ground. If the air bag diagnostic monitor measures a difference of more than 2.0 ohms between pin 20 and pin 3, it will flash diagnostic trouble code (DTC) 44.
    Possible Causes
    High resistance on pin 20 (circuit 618 [BL/W]) to ground can be caused by:
    • A poor connection due to loose mounting, dirt, or corrosion at the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor bracket mounting location.
    • An open or damaged wire in circuit 618 (BL/W) from pin 20 of the air bag diagnostic monitor connector to the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor connector.
    • An open circuit inside the RH radiator primary crash front air bag sensor.

    Beeping Sound in Ford Escort


    there is a malfunction in the srs system.

    the flashing airbag light is indicating a failurein the system and it is flashing a code.

    the beeping is coming from the controll module, if the controller detects a malfunction in the airbag warning light than it will beep in place of flashing the light, this is to inform the driver of a air bag malfunction.

    the light bulb may be bad or it may have a poor connection even if you saw the light on, the controller said there is a resistance issue in that circuit.

    but you still need to have that system check to find out what started the malfunction and commanded the light on.

    good luck

    I changed the steering coloumn and my airbag light flashes


    clockspring is behind steering wheel.

    info

    96 escort

    If the computer in the air bag diagnostic monitor detects an open in the air bag indicator circuit and if another system fault exists, then the air bag diagnostic monitor will turn on its internal tone generator (beeper). The beep pattern is five sets of five beeps. The pattern is repeated every 30 minutes while the ignition switch is in the ON position. The five beeps do not indicate a code five or any other code. The air bag indicator circuitry must be repaired before the diagnostic trouble code can be read.
