Usually if you pull the fuse the light will come on because the system is disabled. You may need to get the airbag module checked out. Its fairly touchy stuff, you have to be careful not to blow the airbag by mistake when you are working on the system.
2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).
This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system). It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system. When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag. if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor. Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model) Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected) by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt. locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)
Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor. only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected) Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer) You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).
More than likely one of your crash sensors has corrosion or has moisture intrusion. Have light reset at any good shop or the dealer - note if light comes back on then you'll need to have your system looked at.
1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below. 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 contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel
this is telling u that a fault has been detected in the airbag circuit by the airbag diagnostic monitor module (system is disabled when light is on), the most common cause is the rotating ribbon contact called the clock-spring contact has a break in it's circuit to the airbag on the steering wheel. To replace this you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel. Follow factory protocol for disarming airbag or serious injury can result from unwanted deployment of the airbag
right behind the rotor itself just inside are babypads and if they are loose it will make the car acts as if the emergency brakes are on so take everything off and behind the rotor you should see these little pads
