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.

How to I disable the airbag on my 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac so I can change out the cruise control buttons?


Remove RCM fuse from dash panel fuse box. Fuse F2.10 10 amps. Turn key onfor 30 seconds and see that Air Bag light is lit. Now disconnect battery negative cable for 1 minute, leave disconnected while service is done. now the air bag is disabled. To repower the system turn key on, insert fuse. connect battery, now turn key off for 10 seconds, then turn key on and watch the air bag light. it should go on then after the air bag module is happy that everything is ok, it will turn off.

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 lite wont turn off in 1999 explorer sport


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.

You can have the airbag light tested for the trouble code that is making the light blink, the most likely cause is the rotating contact that connects the steering wheel airbag to the steering column wiring, it is called the clock-spring contact, if you replace this part yourself make sure to follow factory procedures for disarming the airbag, if you don't and it goes off you will have a good chance of being injured or worse.

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.
