Question about 2002 Ford Explorer

Open Question

Hi I have a 2003 Ford Explorer sport. the airbag light keeps flashing. just recently it went off, and stayed off for several days. When I went to get an inspection today it failed because the light came back on... I've been researching and found that this is a common prob in explorers. The cable that connects to the seatbelt under the seat is too short (causing the airbag light to activate). I went to get my car inspected because the airbag light went off after I readjusted my seat and stayed of for several days. But when the guy drove it into the bay for inspection, he rammed the seat back all the way...and wouldn't you know...airbag light went on. So needless to say I'm going back to the same place, I'll ask the guy not to mess with the seat, and it should pass with flying colors. Anyone else heard about this faulty wiring in Explorers??

I have a code that show on CARMD about the srs light (airbag) on my dash , how do I reset or shut it off without changing an airbag


Hi there:The Restraints Control Module (RCM / located behind right side of the instrument panel) monitors the resistance of the driver side air bag circuit loop and the air bag module igniter at RCM, if the resistance is greater than 3.6 ohms, the RCM will store diagnostic trouble code B1994 and flash lamp fault code.
About the possible causes, pay attention that a high resistance on the driver side air bag circuit can be caused by:
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1257 (WH/LB).
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1258 (BN/LB)
  • - damaged driver side air bag module.
  • - damaged RCM.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2003 Explorer sport trac. Airbag light won't go off


it is not reccomedned for a non trained technician to attempt diagnosis and/or repair of an airbag system, your life depends on it......now that the legal disclaimer is out of the way ;) flasdhing code as you describe is called a LFC or lamp fault code. the code you speak of is for.... Impact Sensor Status (Front Impact Severity Sensor Circuit Fault). it is common for these vehicles to have a corroded impact sensor, it is located in front of the radiator, the connector and sensor must be replaced (and soldered in for integrity) should it be corroded. i suggest a dealership for this repair as one false move and inadvertant air bag deployment may result...good luck!

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

1999 ford explorer ( air bag light)


Since my last post, I found a bright yellow connector under the drivers seat. I took the connector off of the end, bent it a little, and put it back on. My air bag light has stayed off. I am going to put some electrical grease on it and see what happens.
