Air bag light on 2000 Mercury Sable

As I was driving home from work yesterday, my air bag light came on. Is there anything I can check before I pay the dealer $100.00 for a diagnostic evaluation?

    Thanks Michigan Man! I'm assuming however that I will still need to see the dealer for this one?

It can be two things the gas is low in the air bag or the sensor itself inside the front bumper is sticking

How do I take out the air bag and replace it with another one for my 1992 mercury sable?


You don't. .take it to a reputable garage and let them repair it.if you just install a new air bag without replacing crash sensors, clockspring, air bag module and safing sensor, you may deploy the new air bag,possiably causing major bodily harm. ..stay away from it!!! A static shock from you connecting it could set of air bag..

My 2004 mercury sable air bag light blinks on and off 3 times...tried the battery thing..the switch thing..cant get to reset


When the air bag system has a problem it uses the air bag light tell you what the codes are. Three flashes then 1 or 2 second pause then 2 flashes would be a code 32. Then Google it and find out what the code is for. Hope this helps

I can't get the !brake light on my 2000 mercury


First,check that your emergancy brake lever or foot pedal is pulled all the way up.
The next thing is probably either dirt on your anti-lock sensors at the wheels,or air getting into the line or low brake fluid in reservoir. don-ohio

I have a 2000 Mercury Sable. runs at speed and under load but idle is rough and stalls frequently while at the lights or just sitting for a short time in drive or park. I changed the plugs, the air and...


There are many possibilities on this. Anything from bad Gas, Bad Ignition Wires, Bad Distributor/IgnitionCoil, Intake Air Leaks, Bad Sensors etc.
It sounds like a malfunctioning Idle Air Control Valve. You can take this off and clean it with Carb Cleaner. Reinstall and check operation. If it helps but does not solve completely the problem: Replace this.
Check your Ignition Wires and Distributor/Ignition Coil.
The Idle Control Valve is available at
(no-I don't work for either store/company)
Autozone Part #TV281 for around $51.
Advance Auto Part #50523 for around $52.

Inflated airbag


you need to buy new air bags and a new computer for the air bags you will also need to replace the clock spring in the steering wheel, I do not suggest you do this without knowing anything about the air bag system as it can kill you. This one is for a professional, and the older cars have added items that need to be checked like accelerometers and crash sensors on the front of the radiator core support and on each fender, any one of these items could deploy the air bag if defective. and the old ones deploy at 180 miles per hour.

Instrument Panel Codes??


Yes, it's called a lamp fault code.

9 is not familiar to me. Call dealer service department and ask them what code means.

Here are codes for a 94 Aerostar. I don't have 91 Sable. Sorry.
