SOURCE: Air Bag Sensor

Yes You can Replace The Sensor Yourself The Question Is Are You Willing To Tear Your Complete Steering Column Appart!
Also Special Tools Required ( Hex Headed Alan Bolts )
The Sensor Is Located On The Belly Side Of The Steering Column Under The Steering Wheel Beside The Ignition Switch
The Average Cost Of A Mecanic Tools And Labor Is Around $250.00
And Believe Me Its Worth It ! If You Don't Believe me Tear It Appart Yourself
Most Airbag Sensors Are Faulty On PreOwned Vehicles Anyway Because They Where Wrecked Prior And The Dealers Don't Want To Have them Fixed With The Crack Downs On The Lemon Laws In Most States.
Alot Of These So Called Make Shift Car lots Sell Em Every Day with Faulty Sensors !.
Anyway....I Would Suggest Taking It To A Authorized Ford Dealership And Have It Fixed At Least You Have A Bill And A Guarantee it deploys in case of a accident !

all you need to do is make sure you disconnect the negative battery terminal.reconnect after 5 mins. if it doesnt go away, then you have a problem with airbag system.

Common fault on FORD

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Where is the air bag location?

If the air bag light is on there is a code stored in the SRS restraint module - air bags ! Wiring problem , impact sensor ! First place to start is have the vehicle check for codes . Not with OBD2 code reader., factory or professional grade scan tool . If you have not worked on air bag systems I recommend you take it to a ASE certified repair shop or the dealer . People have been killed by accidental air bag deployment , by not knowing what's up . Takes special tools !

I was just involved in a head on collision with a tree, And i drive a 03 toyota tacoma and im very shocked that the airbags did not deploy,, And i definetly totalled the truck,,any answers would be...

I does not take much to wrinkle the steel. And vehicles are built with impact zones that are designed to crumble in order to absorb an impact.
Also hitting a tree, as long as there was no give, the air bags should deploy if you were doing 15mph+. If you hit a movable object like rear end a car it would be more like 30mph. But is not an exact science either. Say you were doing 30mph when you hit the tree. Did you brake just before impact? The speed would have been reduced by the time you hit the tree.

Then look at how that truck is built. Its a tin can. Its much less sturdy up front because it is a body on a frame. A uni-body would be stronger up front that that Toyota. The bumper is near nothing, not much of a radiator support, weak aprons. They just are not built like a Tonka truck. With all that stuff giving in there may not have been enough energy left to trigger both impact sensors.

There should be at least two sensors. One up front and one inside the cab (the cab sensor may be inside the airbag brain). Both sensors need to be triggered to activate the air bag. Also the impact needs to be from a straight head on to about a 30 degree angle left or right.

I have worked on a lot of Toyota trucks (fleet vehicles/delivery) over the years in the body shop. I have seen how weak they are up front and how easily they will bend.

Air bag sensor light want stop blinking in my dash

The starter is going to be located under the car engine. You will see it mounted onto the transmission housing. You can trace the path of the positive battery cable to find the starter.

I have a 1997 Lincoln Continental No leaks can be heard in the air bag and they seem to be working right but the air bag light keeps staying on

to check air bags you need a spray bottle of soapy water. spray the heck out of the air bags and the air lines. you will find your leak. check your level sensors also.

Where it's located the air bag sensor on a dodge 2001

the impacts sensors are located on the front near the fenders.
messing with an airbag system is dangerous.
leave it to a qualified technician.there are many other components other than the sensors.

2006 Taurus, airbag light flashes once, then eight times and repeats. I can hear something sliding around inside the steering wheel when I turn. Cruise control and horn don't work either. How do I...

i do not suggest to attempt repairing or diagnosing an air bag system without the proper tools or training. it is entirely possible (and has happened!) that the air bags can deploy inadvertantly upon diagnosis. however now that i have read you your safety rights.....there is no lamp fault code "8" the manner you speak of the flashing light is called a lamp fault code or LFC for short. there is a delay inbetween sequences of flashes. it may indicate a code "44" or maybe "18" or "13" are the descriptions of the codes i listed

13 Crash Data Memory Full INSTALL a new RCM and impact sensors.
18 PAD Warning Lamp Circuit Failure
44 Restraint System — Impact Sensor Status (Passenger Side Impact Sensor Circuit Failure
your air bag system is under manufacturers warranty for 5 years or 50,000 miles. i would encourage you to seek professional assistance from your local dealer. your life may depend on it!

good luck
