    TEST THE AIRBAG SYSTEM DIAGNOSTIC MONITOR FOR CODES, OTHERWISE U WILL DO ALLOT OF VERY EXPENSIVE GUESSING ON WHAT TO REPLACE. THE DEALER WILL HAVE TO RUN THIS TEST UNLESS U HAVE A MANUAL.

When you first start the truck the air bag system does a diagnostic. The light comes on because there is a fault in the system. Needs to be scanned, I suspect they will find a problem with the front impact sensor. Either it was damaged, or the wiring to it was damaged when you went into the ditch.

    you can pay the dealer to run the scan for you or a properly equipped can run the same scan for less money.

My air bag light just started coming on if i restart vehicle it goes out may stay off 2-3 days then back on...if i pull fuse under dash it also kills gauges---2000 f taurus


he light comes on because the airbag computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool. You then need to have the cause repaired by a trained technician. The airbag system is not a safe place for do it you selfers.

Hello I saw the break alert light lit on my


Usually when th fluid level low light comes on, it is because the fluid is ging to the front calipers to fill the pistons that push the brake pads against the rotors. This is because the pads are worn down and probably need replacing.

As for the 3 beeps, it is not related to the brakes.

if it is 5 beeps, it is the air bag or pretensioner.

When the ignition is cycled (turned off and then on), the air bag indicator will remain lit for six seconds and then go out. If an SRS fault exists, the air bag indicator will then flash the two-digit LFC. The air bag indicator will flash the LFC five times, then it will remain illuminated for the rest of the key cycle. The RCM will also communicate the current and historical DTCs through the data link connector (DLC), using the scan tool. If the air bag indicator does not function, and the system detects a fault condition, the RCM will signal the GEM to activate an audible chime. The chime is a series of five sets of five tone bursts. If the chime is heard, the SRS and the air bag indicator require repair.

Hi I have a 2000 Ford Ranger and the air bag light is flashing


The light (on the key switch) that indicates whether the passenger airbag is on or off is, more than likely, burned out. You can either replace the whole switch ($$$) or you can take it apart and solder a new led into the circuit board. You can get the bulb at radio shack (make sure it is 12v). Good Luck!

I have a 2000 Ford Ranger w/ a code 19 flashing on the dash, The bags were blown , have replaced them and the air bag computer still have a code 19 Any ideas?


you will have to replace the Restraint Control Module to clear the error. Until then the airbag should not deploy in a crash. It should be located under the radio.

The part will run in the neighborhood of $100

I have a 2000 jeep cherokee that i bought that had both air bags blown the truck hit a ditch but has no body damage i replaced both air bags but now when you turn on the ignition the air bag light comes...


Something is wrong with the SRS. This is not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional for repair. They will reset the light after repairing it. Otherwise the air bag may not deploy in an accident or may deploy at any moment. Don't take the risk. Get this fixed

Air bag sensor


A possible solution. i have a 2002 ranger in which the air bag light would present itself. i discoved that the passenger air bag indicater bulb was out if i had the airbag on or off. its located next to the key switch. i pulled it appart and notice the bulb was bad. replacing it fixed the problem. there is a catch. this bulb is solderd to the circuit board and you have to get it from radioshack. is a simple task if have a solder kit. hope that helps.
