turn the key to off position, then turn on and wait till the air bag starts to flash. count the first series then break then second series. There will be a pause then it will either flash a second code set or repeat same code. You can then call a sevice department or the chilton book will have a code breakdown for you. At this point you will have a better idea where to go.. PLEASE understand never ever ever use any testin equip ment not meant for this system or it can go off with the force of a 12 gauge shot gun in your face. This is one of the most sensitive systems on your car or truck and potentialy the most unforgiving. Know what your doing or take where it can be diagnosed under proper and saftied conditions. I have been working with these systems since they came out and they still cause me to pause and review the sevice procedures

Air bag light stays on 1998 ford mustang

You need to check for codes immediately or just take
to a repair shop, when you get any MIL Lamp on your dash

The air bag light is part of a system called SRS (supplemental
restraint system) there are other items,seat belts,other air bags
in some models & many sensors thru out any vehicle,so your focus
is not on the steering wheel air bag until you retrieve codes

You can not solve this yourself because the codes are manufacture
& require a factory manual or data base counter part, to follow proper testing procedures to a sucessful conclusion

When the light is on, it may be that the air bags will be turned off,
so,you never know if that is the case or you may need them

Air bag light flashes 3 then 2. I replaced the egr and it still flashes is there a reset necessary or was this really my problem?

Air bag system or codes have nothing to do will engine sensors, more then likely you replace a good EGR valve. The code you got if for air bag only.
