2002 ford explorer xlt, airbag light

We have a ford explorer xlt that we just bought.. The code we are getting is 15.. Do we have to fix this problem or can we leave it?? It looks like the side airbag must have deployed at one time by the crease in the fabric on the passengerside roof but everything is back in place and looks ok. Do you know what the code is and how we can turn it off? Can we still register the vehicle with the airbag light on?

Anytime a air bag is deployed,the air bag control module needs to be replaced. it is cheaper and easier to get a used one from the junk yard just make sure the explorer was not in a accident. it is located under the dash in the middle just where the ash tray is

SOURCE: airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated

Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

SOURCE: 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.

That year Explorer was notorius for rear ABS sensors going bad. If your ABS light is on as well this may be your problem. Also they were notorious for 4WD modules going bad. This problem is more expensive. I would advise you to have it checked on a computer to see what codes you have.

Check the fuse panel first, after that check your fuse relays under the hood, if not then it might be a wiring problem.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford Explorer XLT abs light comes on on

The ABS light is for the Anti-lock Braking System. The MIL will illuminate if there is a difference in wheel speed sensors signals to the PCM. So you might have a wheel speed sensor that is going out on you. Does the light come on at low speeds, or just higway speeds? You could take the vehicle to a local parts store and have them pull the codes for you and that will tell you which speed sensor is out of whack. Also road grime, dirt and gunk buildup can cause speed sensors to give false readings. Hope tihs helps you out.......

I just had the same problem with my 2002 Ford Explorer XLT. I checked all of the fuses in the passenger compartment, #6 under the hood, and was about to get ready to pull the GEM and decided to check ALL if the fuses under the hood. I have found no posts referring to any other fuses but my problem turned out to be the #15 15A Memory (KAPWR) fuse. I replaced it and all is good. Like always, rule out the little things first before spending too much time or money on major repairs.

I have a 2002 ford expedition xlt and the airbag code is 74. what does that mean?


Well I can't find flash code 74 for a 2002 expedition. But looking up the code from Ford it says:
Intermittent Or Rewired Driver's Airbag Module Circuit Low Resistance Or Shorted

Maybe double check the flash code to make sure.

The airbag is there, what's most likely wrong is the key switch may be going bad. Take your Ranger to a reputable mechanic and ask them to check it...unless you have an OBD II or a multimeter.

My overdrive light is flashing indicating the overdrive is off


this could mean there is a problem with the transmission,but most times when OD light is flashing it is because the wiring to the OD switch is broken.
is the OD switch on the end of the gear shift lever ?
or does your vehicle have the shifter on console between seats ?

Airbag passenger side


44 - Right Hand Radiator Primary Crash Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly.

When the Airbag light is blinking, your airbag is disabled and many insurance companies now do a diagnostics on any failed safety equipment in injury accidents....they will not pay 100% percent if there is owner's negligence to maintain vehicle safety equipment. I am still looking into possible causes for this error. I will post any updates as warranted.
