    When it is flashing it is giving you a trouble code like 1 flash then a pause and 5 flashes would be a code 15.

    What code is it flashing?

If the only code 52 is flashing then system is ok and just needs to be cleared.Look behind the glove box and find the gray 2 wire connector.It will be on the left side behind the glove box and follow the proceedure below. Once a fault has been serviced, the associated diagnostic trouble code may be cleared from NVM. Only diagnostic trouble codes that the air bag diagnostic monitor sees as repaired or intermittent may be cleared (diagnostic trouble codes 52 and above). In no circumstances can hard fault conditions (diagnostic trouble codes 45 and below) be cleared.

  1. Follow the diagnostic procedures as outlined to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator.
  1. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.
  1. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ±two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.
  1. Locate the Diagnostic Service Connector located underneath the glove compartment containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).
  1. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground.
  1. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).
  1. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). Diagnostic trouble code is now cleared from NVM. Next highest priority diagnostic trouble code stored in NVM (if one exists) will begin flashing

    Air bag warning light comes on and stays on. when I start the car the airbag light flashes once and then stays lit.


    Hello, This can be something that really needs attention. The warning can tell you that there is a bad Impact sensor on the front bumper or that the Chemicals or contacts in one of your Airbags is not correct.

    You really don't want the thing triggering your bags by accident or having a bag that will not inflate. There should be a Diagnostic plug a scanner can read. It may be something any Bump shop can attend to if you want to avoid a Dealer.

    Where is the switch to disable the passenger airbag on a 2003 ford taurus


    Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Depowering and Repowering

    Depowering Procedure

    WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental

    restraint system (SF3) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce

    the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

    WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the airbag module. Doing so can result in

    air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury.

    WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver

    devices.

    NOTE: Ifa seat equipped with a seat mounted side airbag and or a safety belt

    pretensioner (if equipped) system is being serviced, the supplemental restraint system

    (SES) must be depowered.

    NOTE: The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the RCM fuse is removed and the

    ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a supplemental

    restraint system (SRS) fault.

    NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle

    to the customer

    1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

    3. At the central junction box (Cm), located below the LH side of the instrument panel,

    remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse F223 (lOA) from

    the CTh. For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.

    4. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30

    seconds. The air bag indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct

    ROsI fuse has been removed, If the air bag indicator does not remain lit

    continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding

    5. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

    6. WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the

    backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or

    side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before set-ricing,

    replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors,

    such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood

    latches.

    To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable

    and wait at least one minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power

    supplies (if equipped).

    Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.

    Repoweri.ng Procedure

    1. WARNING: The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service

    only. Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in

    injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

    Make sure all restraint system diagnostic tool(s) that may have been installed during

    the repair have been removed from the vehicle and all SRS components are

    connected.

    2. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON.

    3. Install the ROsI fuse F2.23 (lOA) to the DB and install the cover.

    4. WARNING: Be sure that nobody is in the vehicle and that there is nothing

    blocking or set in front of any air bag module when the battery ground cable is

    connected.

    Connect the battery ground cable.

    5. Prove out the supplemental restraint system (SRS) as follows:

    Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the key back to

    ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The

    air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn

    off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SF3) fault is present, the air bag

    indicator will:

    - failto light.

    - remain lit continuously.

    - flash.

    The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch

    has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the

    restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. if the air bag

    indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of 5

    sets of 5 beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator and any SRS fault discovered

    must be diagnosed and repaired.

    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

    You need to replace the airbag clockspring. It is located inside the steering column and is fairly easy to do for the home mechanic. Be sure to disable the air bag system!! You can find this part that any parts store, for about $100.

    1999 f150 airbag light stays on after blinking upon start up!


    Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
    The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
    • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
    • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
    • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
    • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Prove Out the System
    Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
    • fail to light.
    • remain lit continuously.
    • flash.
    The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Active Commands
    This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.
