This is the most common cause of this fault light blinking on any airbag equipped car or light truck.

When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th Clock Spring ribbon contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

You have to have a scanner to read codes, but it could very possibly be a seatbelt has fired, generally the one that does will be shorter than the other one, unless of course you had a passenger then they both would be retracted.

Air suspension is controlled by the compressor in your engine compartment.  The compressor runs when the suspension is not level.  Either because you have loaded the car with exceptional weight and the system is now adjusting the ride, or you have a leak in the system, or you have a bad sensor.
If you have a leak, the most likely culprit are the air suspension bags, the air suspension solenoids or possibly the lines to them.

I don't work for either of them.  I own a 96 TC and have replaced my air suspension with coil springs form Strutmasters.  Work GREAT and I have no more air suspension problems.  Rides just as good too.  You can't tell the difference.

Time to take the vehicle to your local Ford dealer to have the system diagnosed and have the needed repairs completed. Do not try to fix the system yourself as you may deploy the sir bag by accident and injury may occur. Not to mention that replacement of an air bag is very expensive. Let the techs that are trained to deal with these systems take care of the problem for you.

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

SOURCE: How do I fix a code 44 problem? Air bag light

The air bag code 44 indicates that the air bag computer is not receiving a signal from the right front air bag sensor. This could be caused from defective wiring (loose wire or grounded through chafing) or the sensor being defective.

Why the air bags make a warning sound beep


Need to get it to a reputable repair shop. Have them check for fault code in restraint system. You're getting a code 15 that's telling you there's a concern with the drivers side air bag, module, wiring, or component failure. Possibly a clockspring but that's only a guess. If you were to get in an accident the bags would not deploy, when module sees a fault it shuts down the system to prevent false air bag depl

2006 Mercury Grand Marquis air bag light flashes three times pauses then another three. It then stay on. I assume this is fault 33. Any ideas on where to start looking? Thanks in advance.


Actually I don't recommend car owners working on the air bag system. It can be very dangerous should one of the bags deploy by accident.
Code 33 is for an open or high resistance on the passenger side bag circuit which could be several different components or the wiring harness.

You have a problem or fault with your airbag system and the system would not work if you had a accident. Working on that system incorrectly could cause the airbag to inflate. Take your truck to the dealer or professional garage.

Air bag warning light flashes on my 90 crown vic. some say there is a corroded connection on the bumper, what do you look for to correct?


The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. When the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy in the event of an accident. When the air bag light is on the system has set a code in the computer a scanning device can retrieve the code. The code will give you a clue where the problem is.

Airbag light flashes 3 times


You will need to take your vehicle into to a certified Air Bag Safety Center to do the neccessary tests required on your air bag system, what they dont tell you is the air bag systems on all cars over i believe five years should all be tested by a certified technician in the air bag field, remembber the air bags can be your friend in times of an accident or the contrary, they can be your worst nightmare if they deploy while you are driving without notice, due to a mechanical over looked malfuction.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

Airbag light flashes four or five time then pauses and repeats.


The automatic air bag sensor is tested EVERYTIME to start the car/van. Your system has detected a failure in the Air Bag deployment sensor. It is not dangerous... but the air bag with the faulty sensor will not deploy in an accident.

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.
