    I have the same problem with my 1994 mercury grand marquis, the indicator light flahes once, pause than flashes twice. Using the same logic as above this yields a code of 12. What does this signify?

    airbags systems have 2 digit trouble codes, the first set f flashes is the 1st number, then a pause and the second set of flashes is the 2nd number, so if it blinks 5 times and pauses and then blinks 3 times you have a code 53, please recheck this for me and give me the code it is flashing.

52 is the backup power supply which is part of the airbag diagnostic monitor, where u in a crash? if so u must replace the diagnostic monitor, itcan only deploy the system once and then it burns itself out.

    Air bag light always blinking?


    Mine came on when my car hit 120K mi. I also reset it using a sequence within the car.

    Problem Scenerio: turn car motor on, car conducts self test, during which time airbag light stays on for 5-second (or 5 or 6-beeps)..it turns off for a second then flashes 'off and on'...and annoys the hell out of you as you drive...especially at night.

    Solution 1: put black electrical tape (band-aid) over airbag light indicator...annoying problem gone.

    However, in VA the airbag light can't be flashing to pass the annual car inspection, so....

    Solution 2: Reset the Airbag light using the following sequence I discovered and heard about:

    1. Turn key / ignition to 'ON' (Do Not Start). and await for the self-testing procedure to end (Air Bag Light stays on for about 5-seconds or '6-beeps')
    2. As soon as the Airbag light turns off - turn the ignition to OFF position and count 5-Mississippi's (that's 5-seconds).
    3. Then turn ignition back to 'ON' Position and repeat step 1 & 2 again.

    Conduct Steps 1 & 2 - Three times in a row.

    After the 3rd or successful timed sequence, allow the car to go through it's complete self testing stage and as soon as its done the airbag light will flash...but at a slower pace (That is good!) That means the cpu is resetting. Once you observe the slow flashing airbag light, turn the car off, then start it normally and the airbag light 'should' reset (not flashing and bugging the **** out of you).

    Then, take the black electrical tape off the dash panel and throw it away.

    This is no joke and it really works!! if you have any questions, contact me. carl@sat-tel.com

    Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.


    The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

    The airbag indicator light flashes(3-blinks a pause then 2-blinks then repeats the sequence) at engine start then stays on after a minute or so


    Code 32 on the airbag diagnostic circuit indicates a drivers side air bag wiring resistance out of range. This could be the connections on the clock spring in the steering or a loose connector to the air bag in the steering wheel. If you are not familure with the proper diagnostic proceedures I do not recomend attempting to repair it yourself. If the air bag circuit is not de-energized before removal there is a possibility of air bag deployment when removing it.

    Air bag light blinks then syays on


    If you mean the passenger airbag light no longer lights up and airbag light on the dash blinks at start-up and then stays on; the read the below and check this site:

    www.automotivehelper.com

    I went to radio shack cost me $2.99 for 3 bulb packet. But the post below worked. It really didn't that long, pretty easy job. Took longer to find the tools. The first guys idea/fix, the second guy gave pretty good instructions. Just a little more detail: (3) the clips are one each side of the panel; (5) these two screws are on the inside lower part of module, (6) unclip the plastic tabs from the back (where the plug end is) first and it should lift up easily.

    -------------
    I had this happen on my 98 Ranger.(code 27) My light on the module that turns off the passenger side airbag was burnt out. I went to Radio Shack and bought a 12v light with wires attached and soldered them to the existing light.(didn't even take it out!) It fixed it!! Cost, about $1.50 and 20 minutes of fix time.

    Note: If the light by the key switch to turn off the passenger side airbag does not work, it disables the entire airbag system! Hope yours is as easy to fix.

    ----------

    gerg,

    Thanks for your post. I have no way to read codes, but I heard the five tone alarm every time I started the vehicle and the passenger air bag off light did not light up. I was skeptical, but tried your advice and it worked.

    Parts:
    1) 12-volt colored lamp (Radio Shack part: 272-1099)

    Tools:
    1) socket set
    2) philips head screw driver
    3) soldering iron

    Procedure:
    1) remove ash tray from console panel
    2) using a socket set, remove 4 hex head screws from console panel
    3) pull console panel out of the two clips
    4) remove connector from air bag key module in console panel and take console panel to a work bench
    5) remove 2 philips head screws to remove the airbag key module
    6) carefully unclip the plastic tabs that hold the airbag key module case together
    7) remove connector circuit board from air bag key module
    8) solder the yellow replacement lamp to the two solder pads for the original lamp on the back side of the circuit board (which wire to which pad does not matter)
    9) tie the replacement lamp in place next to the original lamp
    10) replace the circuit board in the airbag key module and snap the case back together
    11) connect the airbag key module in the truck and start the engine to check that the lamp illuminates and that the alarm does not sound
    12) screw the aribag key module back into the console panel
    13) snap the console panel back into the truck
    14) replace the 4 hex head screws
    15) replace the ash tray

    Air bag light is blinking would like to know what is wrong with it


    You have a fault in your airbag system. Therefore, you have no airbags at this time. The blinking then pause, then blinking again is giving a code to tell what the fault is.

    Strange beeping noise


    I read on another site that if the indicator on the dash is malfunctioning and there's a fault code in the system, the beeping is a secondary indication that there's a need for service. I've had my air bag light blinking for some time now. Yesterday my gauges went out, Oil Pressure, Gas Level, Temp Level, and the Battery Charging Meter, all went dead. After starting the vehicle, it beeps 5 sets of 5 beeps. Since the dash obviously has problems, (Including the Air Bag blinking thing not working), the beeps I now hear are what you are experiencing. However, if you still see the air bag light blinking, maybe your situation is a bit different than mine.
