My Airbag indicator is on steady on my 2004 Ford Explorer

When I start my vehicle, all indicators go through their initial flash-up. But once I start driving down the road my airbag indicator starts flashing and eventually stays on.

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.
Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

2002 Ford Explorer. Drove to the store turned it off went in came out 2 minutes later and it won't start or even make a noise but it is getting power. What could it be?


Is the red light on the top center of the dash pad flashing fast when trying to start ? The engine doesn't turn over ?
Anti-theft system problem !
PATS uses a visual theft indicator. This indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS problem, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. PATS also "blips" the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual theft deterrent.
PATS differs from the perimeter anti-theft system in that PATS enables and disables the engine from starting. If equipped, the perimeter anti-theft system protects the perimeter of the vehicle (doors, hood and trunk) and sounds an alarm.
The PATS is not compatible with aftermarket remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. Remote start systems must be removed before investigation of PATS-related No Start issues.

I'm getting an audible alarm from my instrument cluster as the air bag light doesn't light up with the rest of my instrument lights when i turned the key to on the alarm is 5 beeps appox. 5 times is there...


Replace the airbag lamp in the cluster, and get the LFC ( Light Flash Code ) to figure out what the problem is with the SRS.
The 5x5 beeping is an indication that there is a SRS problem waiting and the airbag light cannot give the LFC. Page 105 in the owners manual.

Once you replace the airbag light, you will get a LFC that is a 2 digit number presented by the flashes.
Example is a LFC of 42, the airbag light would flash 4 times, pause flash 2 times pause and repeat.

Once you have the LFC, either start a new problem, or add a comment to this problem with the number for further diagnoses.

Help for the airbag icon flashing -- is it obviously serious, or could it be a wiring issue or other simple fix? It has just begun a system of multiple flashes and then off for several minutes OR a solid...


upon ignition on the airbag diagnostic module will scan the system for any fault, if there is a fault the airbag indicator will flash. The first set of flash signifies the first digit then a pause the next set of flash for the second digit.Combine these two digits denotes the fault code i.e (two rapid flashes means 2 then a pause followed by three flashes means 3 combine these will read 23 this is the fault code but you need to consult this in the repair manual for ford cars to get the particular fault.Repetitions of 5 sets will occur then steady light on for the airbag.Just replace the instrument cluster and replace the busted bulbs for odometer and turn indicator

Airbag light on 2003 ranger


When you turn on the ignition switch does the light flash and then stay steady on?

If it's flashing it could indicate the fault code. By instance, two long followed by 5 short blinking will indicate an error code 25

The same code may be repeated before the light stay on.

By the way, any changes or repairs done recently on your vehicule?
Let us know if you get additional information
Hope it will help

Airbag light flashes then stays on in our 2002 Ford Explorer.


Safety Belt pre-tensioner Status (Driver pre-tensioner Circuit Fault).
On the seat belt buckle there is a pre-tensioner that when vehicle is involved in an accident it will deploy and pull the belt tighter.

If the vehicle has never been involved in an accident it could be what we call terminal fretting which is just a build up on the terminals which cause a open circuit. Usually just unplugging and reconnecting the connector a couple of times will fix this.

If this doesn't correct it I would recommend having your local dealer look at it.

2004 Ford Explorer won't start. Think we need to


it resets itself.

Principles of Operation
The PATS uses a specially encoded ignition key. Each encoded ignition key contains a permanently installed electronic device called a transponder. Each transponder contains a unique electronic identification code out of over 18 billion, billion combinations.
The passive anti-theft system (PATS), also known as SecuriLock ®, uses radio frequency identification technology to deter a drive-away theft. This system is known as SecuriLock® in North America, Safeguard® in the U.K., and PATS in Continental Europe. Passive means that it does not require any activity from the user.
The SecuriLock® System (PATS) is not compatible with aftermarket remote start systems, which allow the vehicle to be started from outside the vehicle. These systems may reduce the vehicle security level, and also may cause no-start issues. If equipped the remote start system must be removed before investigation of PATS-related, no-start issues.
Each encoded ignition key must be programmed into the vehicle's powertrain control (PCM) before it can be used to start the engine. There are special diagnostic repair procedures described in this section that must be carried out if a new encoded ignition key is necessary.
This system contains a new feature named Unlimited Key Mode. This feature allows a customer to program more than eight keys to the vehicle if they request it. Each vehicle in Unlimited Key Mode is set up with a special Unlimited Transponder Security Key. This allows all the customer vehicles to share the same keys, but no other keys from outside can be used to operate the vehicles. For an individual customer, any randomly selected Security Key is acceptable. Refer to Unlimited Key Mode Programming in Key Programming Switch State Control in this section.
The PATS transceiver module communicates with the encoded ignition key. The module is located behind the steering column shroud and contains an antenna connected to a small electronics module. During each vehicle start sequence, the transceiver module reads the encoded ignition key identification code and sends data to the PCM.
The control functions are contained in the PCM. This module carries out all of the PATS functions, such as receiving the identification code from the encoded ignition key and controlling the engine enable. The PCM initiates the key interrogation sequence when the vehicle ignition switch is turned to RUN or START.
All elements of the PATS must be functional before the engine is allowed to start. If any of the components are not working correctly, the vehicle will not start.
The PATS uses a visual theft indicator. The indicator will prove out for three seconds when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START under normal operation. If there is a PATS concern, this indicator will either flash rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition switch is turned to RUN or START. The PATS system also flashes the theft indicator every two seconds at ignition OFF to act as a visual deterrent.
The PATS will be activated and will disable the vehicle from starting if there is a:
  • incorrectly encoded ignition key
  • damaged encoded ignition key
  • unprogrammed key
  • non-encoded key (key has no electronics)
  • damaged wiring
  • damaged transceiver
  • damaged PCM

96 ford explorer no power no crank no anything


Sounds like a connection problem/error. When you replaced the starter solenoid, do you remember how many wires you disconnected and reconnected?

Was there any indication ( sparks, etc) of accidentally causing a short when you replaced the solenoid?

Your initial problem of no start but hearing the click sound is almost a sure fire indication that the starter is NG. If the solenoid clicks, that means that it is applying 12 volts to the starter.

hope this helps Good luck Loringh
