This is a common fault on a FORD.

Usually due to a poor connection on the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and the AirBag fault should clear

I have a code that show on CARMD about the srs light (airbag) on my dash , how do I reset or shut it off without changing an airbag


Hi there:The Restraints Control Module (RCM / located behind right side of the instrument panel) monitors the resistance of the driver side air bag circuit loop and the air bag module igniter at RCM, if the resistance is greater than 3.6 ohms, the RCM will store diagnostic trouble code B1994 and flash lamp fault code.
About the possible causes, pay attention that a high resistance on the driver side air bag circuit can be caused by:
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1257 (WH/LB).
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1258 (BN/LB)
  • - damaged driver side air bag module.
  • - damaged RCM.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

OVERDRIVE LIGHT FLASHING ON A 97 FORD EXPLORER,SOUNDS LIKE NOISE COMING FROM TORQUE CONVERTER ALSO.


Light flashing means a code is stored in the transmission computer.A stored code can cause high line pressure which could cause some pump noise, but most ;likely the torque converter is starting to break up.The codes will tell the story.Good luck.

2007 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition - when turn key on message flashes across top center of dash "passenger airbag off". How do I turn it ON?


most of these new day pass air bags are in the off possition untill weight is applied to pass seat. Sit in pass seat and start vehicle and see if this activates the air bag on.

O/d light flashing on 1995 Ford explorer. Started


You should have the computer self tested by someone with a scan tool. The flashing overdrive light indicates a concern with the transmission. Self testing the computer should produce a fault code and give you some idea of what is wrong.

you will have to take it to a mechanic that can reset the light when charging you may have caused a fault code to come up with low voltage.

OD off Light Flashing on my 1998 Ford Explorer XLT 4.0 V


The OD light is flashing to alert u to the fact that some kind of fault has occured in the transmission, the problem is in many cases a slipping condition, you need to have the trans control system tested for the trouble codes that are stored when this light flashes, this will let u know what the problem is and a direction to follow to repair it.

Airbag light flashes then stays on in our 2002 Ford Explorer.


Safety Belt pre-tensioner Status (Driver pre-tensioner Circuit Fault).
On the seat belt buckle there is a pre-tensioner that when vehicle is involved in an accident it will deploy and pull the belt tighter.

If the vehicle has never been involved in an accident it could be what we call terminal fretting which is just a build up on the terminals which cause a open circuit. Usually just unplugging and reconnecting the connector a couple of times will fix this.

If this doesn't correct it I would recommend having your local dealer look at it.

The O/D light in my 1998 Ford Explorer will start blinking at me some times. It has been doing this for a coupe of days now. It won't do it right when I start driving but will do it a short time after I...


when the OD light flashes it is telling u that an electronic sensor see's a fault in your transmission's operation, there will be a trouble code stored in the powertrain computer. U will need to have the code before we can even venture a guess at what the problem is.
