2008 ford f-350 passenger air bag flashes 1-7 code than stays on when truck is started.What does the code mean and can the code be reset without tearing air bag out of truck?


If a SRS fault exists, the RCM sends a message to instrument cluster module to flash a coded sequence which is called a lamp flash code (LFC) on the air bag warning indicator. Each LFC is flashed 3 times after which the air bag indictor will remain lit for the remainder of the key-on cycle. In addition to the self-test at start up, the RCM continuously monitors all of its external and internal circuitry for faults.
While the LFCs are an indication of a general concern in the supplemental restraint system (SRS), the DTCs are more specific. The DTCs can be retrieved from the RCM with a scan tool via the DLC.

MY AIR BAG LIGHT IS STAYING ON AND SOMETIMES IT FLASHES?


You need to find out what the fault code is. It will direct you to the area responsible.

Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor
ani_caut.gif WARNING: UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SUBSTITUTE ANOTHER FUSE VALUE FOR THE 10A BATTERY FUSE. ANY FUSE OTHER THAN 10A MAY CAUSE DISARMING FAILURE AND MAY RESULT IN DANGER TO THE OCCUPANTS OF THE VEHICLE. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPLACE THE 10A BATTERY FUSE UNTIL THE AIR BAG SYSTEM FIRST HAS BEEN DEACTIVATED (SEE DEACTIVATION PROCEDURE FOR DETAILS).
NOTE: The safing sensor is internal to the air bag diagnostic monitor (14B056) and is not replaced separately.
The air bag diagnostic monitor continually monitors all supplemental air bag restraint system (SRS) components and wiring connections for possible faults in the system. If the air bag diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the SRS when the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be displayed by the air bag indicator, located on the instrument cluster (10849).
The air bag diagnostic monitor does not deploy the air bag in the event of a collision. The LH or RH air bag sensor and the safing sensor determine when to deploy the air bag.
The air bag diagnostic monitor illuminates the air bag indicator for approximately six seconds when the ignition switch is in the RUN position and then turns the indicator off. This shows that the air bag indicator is operational. If the air bag indicator does not illuminate or the indicator stays on or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
DTCs may not be displayed for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position. This is the amount of time the air bag diagnostic monitor requires to perform all tests and verify system faults.
Each DTC (a series of flashes and pauses of the air bag indicator):
  • Represents a two-digit number.
  • Is always displayed at least twice.
If the diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the air bag system, a DTC will be written to the diagnostic monitors non-volatile RAM (NVRAM). This DTC will then cause the lamp to flash a lamp fault code (LFC) on the air bag indicator and can be retrieved with the New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester. After repair, the DTC may then be cleared from the NVRAM.
If a system fault is present and the air bag indicator is malfunctioning, an audible tone will be heard. The tone is a series of five sets of five beeps. If the tone is heard, the air bag system requires repair.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor will attempt to remove deployment power by turning on a solid state switch to blow the 10A battery fuse 2.
If the 10A battery fuse has successfully been blown by the air bag diagnostic monitor, the air bag diagnostic monitor will not attempt to blow it again until the proper fault has been repaired and cleared (see Diagnostic Trouble Code Clearing procedures for details). The air bag diagnostic monitor will store both the unwanted deployment DTC and the loss of deployment power DTC. The loss of deployment power DTC is the highest priority.
DTCs are prioritized numerically. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed first. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The air bag diagnostic monitor includes an internal backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bag in the event the battery (10655) or battery cables are damaged in a collision before safing and air bag sensors close. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the positive battery cable is disconnected.
--------------------------------------------
The DTCs can be retrieved with New Generation STAR (NGS) Tester using the Retrieve/Clear Continuous DTCs option. Any DTCs stored in the air bag diagnostic monitor will be displayed on the NGS along with a brief description of the DTC. If no DTCs are present, the NGS Tester will display a SYSTEM PASSED message. This option can also be used to clear DTCs from the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, as long as the concern no longer exists. Once a DTC is logged into the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, it will stay in memory until 255 key cycles have been recorded or until the NGS is used to erase the DTCs. Once 256 key cycles have been recorded since the concern was last detected, the DTC will automatically be removed from memory.

Where is the switch to disable the passenger airbag on a 2003 ford taurus


Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Depowering and Repowering

Depowering Procedure

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental

restraint system (SF3) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce

the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the airbag module. Doing so can result in

air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver

devices.

NOTE: Ifa seat equipped with a seat mounted side airbag and or a safety belt

pretensioner (if equipped) system is being serviced, the supplemental restraint system

(SES) must be depowered.

NOTE: The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the RCM fuse is removed and the

ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a supplemental

restraint system (SRS) fault.

NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle

to the customer

1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.

2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

3. At the central junction box (Cm), located below the LH side of the instrument panel,

remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse F223 (lOA) from

the CTh. For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.

4. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30

seconds. The air bag indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct

ROsI fuse has been removed, If the air bag indicator does not remain lit

continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding

5. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

6. WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the

backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or

side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before set-ricing,

replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors,

such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood

latches.

To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable

and wait at least one minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power

supplies (if equipped).

Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.

Repoweri.ng Procedure

1. WARNING: The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service

only. Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in

injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

Make sure all restraint system diagnostic tool(s) that may have been installed during

the repair have been removed from the vehicle and all SRS components are

connected.

2. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON.

3. Install the ROsI fuse F2.23 (lOA) to the DB and install the cover.

4. WARNING: Be sure that nobody is in the vehicle and that there is nothing

blocking or set in front of any air bag module when the battery ground cable is

connected.

Connect the battery ground cable.

5. Prove out the supplemental restraint system (SRS) as follows:

Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the key back to

ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The

air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn

off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SF3) fault is present, the air bag

indicator will:

- failto light.

- remain lit continuously.

- flash.

The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch

has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the

restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. if the air bag

indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of 5

sets of 5 beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator and any SRS fault discovered

must be diagnosed and repaired.

Hi,,,Igot this 2005 crown vic ,,and has a airbag lite on displays ,code 2293,,and blinks 68..6....8... What could it be?


Lamp Fault Code (LFC)
When the Restraints Control Module (RCM) detects a system fault, it will flash a coded sequence which is called a Lamp Fault Code (LFC) on the air bag warning indicator located in the Instrument Cluster (IC) module. The code is 2 digits. The first digit is flashed with a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 2-second pause before the second digit is flashed, which also has a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 5-second pause between each display of an LFC.
Each LFC is flashed 3 times after which the air bag indictor will remain lit for the remainder of the key-on cycle (except for DTC B2792 [cross link between firing loops] which only flashes one LFC). If there are multiple LFCs, each LFC will flash in order of priority.

2000 lincoln continental 3 airbags deployed frnt dash steering wheel and driver seat replaced all three but air bag lights still flashes please advise


I think that a scanner can clear the DTC (diagnostic trouble code).
It seems to me that if a problem is detected that the light will stay on to alert the driver until cleared.
General Information The supplemental restraint system was designed to provide increased protection in case of an accident for those in the front seat of the car, when used along with the safety belt system. The system MUST be disarmed before any work is performed on or around the supplemental air bag system. The system is an electronically controlled, mechanically operated system. The system contains two basic subsystems: the driver's side air bag module assembly and the passenger side air bag assembly, and the electrical system that connects them. The system consists of:
  • The crash sensors
  • The safing sensor
  • The air bag module(s)
  • The diagnostic monitor
  • The back-up power supply
  • The instrument cluster indicator
  • The sliding contacts (clock spring assembly)
The system is operates as follows: The system remains out of sight until activated in an accident that is determined to be the equivalent of hitting a parked car of the same size and weight at 28 mph (40 km/h) with the vehicle receiving severe front end damage. This determination is made by crash and safing sensors mounted on the vehicle which when a sufficient impact occurs, close their contacts completing the electrical circuit and inflating the air bags. When not activated the system is monitored by the air bag diagnostic monitor and system readiness is indicated by the lamp located on the instrument cluster. Any fault detected by the diagnostic monitor will illuminate the lamp and store a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). Fig. 1: Air bag system component locations — 1990–91 vehicles 84176001.gif

Dash lights went out, so i had some fuses removed to see which one was bad. next thing i know the airbag light was on.


You just need to turn it off again. You created a false trigger of the light. You may have to have dealer do it with scan tool.


Prove Out Procedure
Turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules or restraint system diagnostic tools installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------- Restraints Control Module (RCM)
The restraints control module (RCM) performs the following functions:
  • signals the inflators to deploy the air bags in the event of a deployable crash.
  • monitors the air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) for faults.
  • illuminates the air bag indicator if a fault is detected.
  • flashes the air bag indicator to indicate the lamp fault code (LFC) detected.
  • communicates through the data link connector (DLC) the current or historical diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).
  • signals the generic electronic module (GEM) to activate a chime if the air bag indicator is not available and another SRS fault exists.
NOTE: The safing sensor is internal to the RCM and is not repaired separately.
The RCM monitors the SRS for possible faults. If a fault is detected while the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the RCM will illuminate the air bag indicator located in the instrument cluster.
When the ignition is cycled (turned off and then on), the air bag indicator will begin its prove out sequence. During prove out the air bag indicator will illuminate for six seconds, go off for two seconds and then, if a system fault exists, 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 DLC, using a 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.
LFCs are prioritized. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The RCM includes a backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bags in the event that the ignition circuit is damaged in a collision before the safing and air bag sensors determine that deployment is required. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the battery ground cable is disconnected.
Electrical System
The electrical system that supports the air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS):
  • is powered from the battery through the ignition circuit.
  • provides the electrical path from the restraints control module (RCM) to the air bag modules.
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the air bag indicator.
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the data link connector (DLC).
  • provides the electrical path from the RCM to the generic electronic module (GEM).

My air bag light on my 2000 Ford Econoline van flashes a 19 code. Does anyone know what that means?


Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!
