Question about 1992 Mercury Sable

Instrument Panel Codes??

I have a '91 Mercury Sable. My air bag light on my dash started blinking. It blinks 9 times, pauses, and then starts the sequence over again. Is this a code and if so, what does it mean?

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.

What do you fix when you get a code 15 on 1992 mercury grand marquis


I would highly recommend taking it to a dealer for repair. If that air bag goes off when you are working on it the possibility of killing you is there. The electronics are very sustaiable to static and can detonate it. It may save you money repairing it but that could cost you your life and remember it is part of the vehicle safety system. Doing the repair yourself would probably eliminate any liability for any of the equipment contained in the safety system for everybody except you.

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

You should be able to disconnect the battery for a minute or two and clear the code if you think it is fixed.

I have a 91 Buick Century that dies after a few minutes.


Fuel or ignition problem? Right after it dies, check for spark at a plug. A bad coil will often work till it's warmed up, then fail. If you still have ignition spark after it dies, or if it starts right up again, then it's something else.
Check the fuel pressure to make sure it's at proper pressure. Also scan the computer for any trouble codes that are related. It's easy on your car if you understand how the flashing light translates to two-digit number codes. Use a wire or paperclip to bridge terminals A and B of the diagnostic test connector protruding out from bottom of dash. It's a 12 pin connector. A and B are the two upper right terminals on it. Now turn key on and the check engine light will begin blinking the codes. Code 12 is diagnostic mode-one blink, pause, pause,blink, pause blink. See? 22 would be blink, pause, blink, pause, pause, blink, pause, blink. See? 33 would be three blinks, short pause and then 3 rapid blinks. (I"m going blink crazy!) Well, get the codes-they are two digit codes, and will keep repeating, lower numbers first and in succession, over and over while in diagnostic mode. Maybe an idle sensor fault will show up.
Good luck.

Aig bag light flashing


It should flash a code to tell you what is wrong with the system. Most of the time it will end up being a burnt out bulb for the system. Count the blinks and then wait for a minor pause and count the blinks again. Should give you a 2 digit code like 27. Google it online with your year make and engine and it should come up or call the dealer. Post it here if you cant find the answer

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.
