    I have a 1999 ford explorer and the driver side airbag light stays on for no apparent reason. If the problem is the clack spring contact and I replace it as you suggest, will the light return to normal or do I need to do something else too?

    thanks in advance

The light is blinking a fault code at u, but here is the most common cause of the airbag light staying on, it is caused by a break in the flat ribbon rotating contact under the steering wheel, this contact assembly is called the clock-spring contact, u must dis-arm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel to replace it.

2003 ford explorer sport blinker dont blink on the dashboard... How do I fix it??


if the bulbs on outside are ok, and it will not flash on dash and stays completely lite up. replace the turn signal flasher. Look under the steering column and locate the fuse box. The fuse box is under the plastic kick panel. Under the panel is a yellow case that holds the turn signal relay. Test that this is the relay by turning it on and placing a finger on the relay. You should be able to feel the relay clicking. Pull the relay from the socket and plug a new one back in. Reattach the kick panel and start the Explorer. good-day !

How do i get my air bag sensor light to go off in my Ford Explorer Sport. The airbag sensor light stays on constantly, but the airbag has never deployed.


You need to have the system scanned. When the light is on there is something wrong with the air bag system. The air bag will not deploy when the system has a fault. This is something that is dangerous to drive that way because the vehicle is designed for that to go of in a crash, not to have you hit the air bag. If you have the codes retrieved as part of an estimate and post them I will tell you what to do to get the system back on line.

My airbag lite stays on in my hyundai 2003 santa fe what does this mean


A solid air bag light indicates the air bag computer detects a fault in the air bag system. If the light is on the air bags won't deploy in the event of an accident. The computer will have to be scanned to determine what the problem is.

Air bag light stays solid for 98 maxima.


Try resetting the air bag warning light...

1. Turn on the ignition with the driver's door open;
2. Quickly flick the driver's door switch 7 times.

This will clear the warning. See if that makes the light behave. If not, you have invested about a minute of your time.

1999 ford explorer ( air bag light)


Since my last post, I found a bright yellow connector under the drivers seat. I took the connector off of the end, bent it a little, and put it back on. My air bag light has stayed off. I am going to put some electrical grease on it and see what happens.
