Question about 2000 Ford Expedition
20 seconds after igntition there are 3 sets of five warning chimes. I took it to a dealer and they recommend changing the right side air bag monitor assembly for $550.00. Can I change it myself? where is it located?
Check in the passanager side glove box for the air bag sensor or it may also be located behind the glove box there is also a crash sensor mounted behind the front grill
