Sounds like the seals may have failed in the air shocks themselves. I also think you may have a bleeder valve problem. Follow the lines back and check the bleeder valve to see if it is leaking when you have someone else turn the vehicle on.

Seems to be a very common problem with Ford. The wiring harness beneath the drivers seat contains the sensors for the airbag system. Go under the drivers seat and secure all the wires and clips. This makes most error lights for the airbags go away. Hope this helps and good luck!

2003 ford ecoline cargo passenger side air bag cover


The whole unit needs to come out if it is even a replaceable component and it may not be, it may come as a complete unit with the air bag. I would not mess with the air bag unit, it should only be serviced by a trained professional as serious injury can result if customer tries to service air bags.

How to remove the steering wheel for replacement


SIR DISABLE:
DRIVER SIDE
Many service procedures require the air bag system to be disabled to prevent accidental deployment. The air bag system can maintain sufficient voltage to cause deployment for up to 2 minutes after the ignition switch is turned off, the battery ground cable is disconnected or the DERM fuse is removed. If the inflator module is disconnected from the deployment loop by the following procedure, service can begin immediately without waiting for the 2 minute time period to elapse.
  1. Turn steering wheel so that vehicle wheels are pointed straight ahead.
  2. Turn ignition switch to Lock position and remove key.
  3. Remove air bag fuse from fuse block.
  4. Remove steering column filler panel.
  5. Remove Connector Position Assurance (CPA) and disconnect yellow two-way connector at base of steering column, Fig. 1.
PASSENGER SIDE
  1. Remove air bag fuse from fuse block.
SIR ENABLE:
Driver Side
  1. Turn ignition switch to LOCK and remove key.
  2. Connect yellow two-way connector and install connector position assurance (CPA).
  3. Install steering column filler panel.
  4. Insert air bag fuse into fuse block.
  5. Turn ignition switch to RUN and verify that the air bag warning lamp flashes seven times then turns off.
Passenger Side
  1. Turn ignition switch to LOCK and remove key.

I have all the functions of the a/c and the associated operations of the dashboard doors when selected, except. no heat whatsoever when selected. The heater core is hot when the engine is @ normal temp....


Hi, this problem is caused by failure of the blend door actuator or structural failure of the door itself. First, access the actuator as instructed below. Have someone turn the key on and change the temperature setting while you watch the actuator. If the actuator turns, odds are the door hinge has failed. In this case, the heater box must be removed from the truck and split open to repair the door.
If the actuator does not move, it may have failed. Remove the actuator and check it for stripped gears or plug it back in and see if it will turn at all when the temperature control is changed. You might also want to check for voltage at the connector before buying a new actuator. A new actuator is about $40.


  1. Disarm the air bag system as explained below.
  2. Open the glove compartment to access the passenger air bag module bolts.

    jturcotte_2121.gif

    Fig. Passenger air bag module view

  3. Disconnect the passenger air bag module electrical connector
  4. Remove the two passenger air bag retaining bolts.
  5. Disconnect the passenger air bag module electrical connector.
  6. Placing one hand in the glove compartment, push the passenger air bag module out and remove it.
    WARNING Do not handle the passenger air bag module by grabbing the edges of the deployment doors.
  7. Remove the defroster opening grill.

  1. Fig. Defroster grill view


  2. Detach and position the RH demister hose aside.
  3. On vehicles with anti-theft/keyless entry, remove the screws and position the anti-theft/keyless entry module aside.
  4. Working through the opening near the RH defroster nozzle, remove the screw.
  5. Disconnect the electrical connector.
  6. Remove the screws and the temperature blend door actuator.
  7. To install, reverse the removal procedure. Tighten the air bag module bolts to 71 inch lbs. (8 Nm).

Fig. Temperature blend door actuator view




Disarming the Airbag System

  1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
  3. At the smart junction box (SJB), located below the RH side of the instrument panel, remove the RH lower cowl trim panel and remove the restraints control module (RCM) fuse from the SJB. For additional information, refer to the Owner-s 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 RCM 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 OFF.
    CAUTION 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 servicing, replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors or RCM, such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood latches.
  6. 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).
  7. Disconnect the battery ground cable (14301) and wait at least one minute.
