SOURCE: warning light for airbag/seat belt pretensioners

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: 2000 ford zx2, battery light keeps coming on/off,

There seems to be a no charge state in this case. i recommend checking the charging system. use the procedure below to isolate this issue.

Wear protective eye wear and clothing and remove all jewelry when checking your battery and charging system. Jewelry is a good conductor of electricity and is not recommended. Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation. Automotive batteries have a +positive terminal (red), - negative terminal (black). Electricity is stored in the battery and then supplied to the vehicle when the engine is not running. While the engine is running the vehicles alternator charges the battery for future use. (Note: never disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If the battery cable is disconnected from the battery a spark can be generated which can cause the battery to explode or a major electrical malfunction to occur.)

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the +positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the - negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure)

The alternator is rotated by a drive belt driven by the vehicles engine while it is running. Electrical voltage and amperage are generated to recharge the battery and supply voltage to the electrical system of the car. The alternator is held in place with mounting bolts. There is a main electrical wire on the rear of the alternator that supplies voltage to a main voltage junction box. If your alternator is not charging properly, your battery will slowly drain down from operating all the electrical systems in your car and stop the car from running.(most non charge states will be the cause of a loose belt or a low tension rate, due to a mis-adjusted alternator. make sure you have enough tension in the belt for full rotation of the alt pulley)

Next, you will need to check the alternators output with the Amp meter.

Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, but if the voltage is low, it will still allow the battery to go dead. To check the amperage output of an alternator an amp meter is needed. Once the meter is connected start the engine. Next turn on all electrical accessories and raise the engine idle to about 1200 RPM. The alternator should output the max amperage it was designed to produce. Example: a 90 amp alternator should output about 88 amps. Note: An alternator cannot sustain maximum output for long periods of time. If the alternator is forced to operate at maximum output it will overheat and fail. An alternator is designed to operate at max amperage output only for a reasonable amount of time.

((Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.3 volts. If not the alternator may need replacing.)))

Airbag light is staying on , think this was caused by water in the footwell both back and front , its a 2004 vectra club estate ive got


How deep was the water , would first check connections on drivers seat before assuming its airbag in steering wheel ,seatbelt pretensioners are on same circuit plug will be on framework of seat or close to underside front and normally have yellow wiring disconnect battery for half an hour to discharge systems unplug connectors under seat clean connections reconnect and check fault ,you may need to get fault read and cleared but should go out

Have short in fuse box horn fuse keeps blowing.removed air bag but connected horn on seperate switch also abs switch is in foult.could anyone suggest where the foult is?


First of all, it's not likely there is a short in the fuse box. More likely is a short in the horn circuit. Check the horn mechinism in steering collum and the wiring to the horns. Why would you remove an airbag? Also, The ABS system is a brake pressure regulating device that operates via wheel speed sensors mounted near the brake rotors, which feed info to a computor. Either the sensors are bad, there is a problem with wiring/connectors, or the computor is haywire.

Sealtbelt light flickers on a 1998 Mailbu. Is that a problem? Airbag light is okay. Thanks for your help.


If you have pretensioners on your seat belt buckles, you have a chafed wire or loose connection or a bad pre-tensioner.

please rate if this helps

2003 ford ranger airbag light is flashing code (46) it flashes 4 times short pause then 6 times long pause


46--- Driver Pretensioner Circuit Resistance High

That means the buckle in you driver side seat belt system has failed. It has an explosive device called a pretensioner in it which is designed to pull you into place microseconds before the airbag deploys. That component has failed and has deactivated the airbag system. You will need to replace the 'buckle pretensioner'.
But before you do, please get real familiar with the system you are working on before you cause additional damage, hurt yourself or deploy the bags accidentally.

Warning light for airbag/seat belt pretensioners


Hi if all is working as it should this is most likely to be just a faulty sensor, you can have them reset or replace it,, best to have the car put on a quick diagnostice test to find the exact sensor at fault.
Hope this helps

Airbag


Your Driver Side Air Bag Circuit has Low Resistance or is Shorted out. I would suggest taking it to a dealer for expert repair. Airbags can be very dangerous to work on.

Air bag light blinks


In most cases this is caused by a defective rotating clock spring contact to the airbag from the steering column, the system is then disabled by the airbag diagnostic monitor until the system is repaired

AIR BAG LIGHT STAYS ON


look to see if you can adjust your seat belt pretensioner to better suit your height. look at the top of your seat belt- ( driver's side up and to the left of your left shoulder ) and see that you can very easily slide up or down your seat belt pretensioner. you are actually supposed to do this and even redo it if you ever readjustt your seat up or down or forward or backwards. believe it or not, your safety airbag light will come on automatically until you adjust your seat belt pretenioner in a way that the sensors read your seat belt to be safely set. naturally, if someone else drives the car he or she might have to readjust the seat belt pretensioner for the sensors to read them as being safely put. do this and the airbag warning light should go out.
