Question about 1998 Ford Escort

Airbag/seatbelt dash light flashing a code.

I have a 1998 Ford Escort LX. The airbag/seatbelt light comes on then flashes a code. It flashes 2 times then 4 times. It repeats this same sequence about 5 times then stays on for a few minutes then repeats the 2 4 flashes again. Can you tell me what would cause this?

    Airbag light keeps flashing

    That indicates a fault with the airbag system, and your airbags will not operate in the event of an accident.

    Take your car to a good mechanic or local Ford dealer to have the problem determined.

    Keep in mind that if you live in an area that does anual vehicle saftey inspections, your car will not pass inspection with that light flashing or on.

    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

    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.
