Question about 2002 Lincoln LS

1 Answer

Same exact problem

None of my steering wheel controls work and my airbag light is on. Now my car doesn't start periodically, but all the lights and stereo work just fine when I turn on the ignition.. If I wiat a few hours it starts right up. I took it to the dealer, but they said it started right up every time they tried it, and that they could not diagnose the problem unless it happened at their shop.. Now I am stuck at a friends house and my car won't start... Anyone know WTF is going on......? Or how to fix it? 2003 Lincoln LS

Airbag light on in dashboard xtype


This is task for an auto electrician but you could check the wiring connection on the column possible only earth wire is disconnected. Especially if the horn doesn't operate as well. Allan Caution!!!!!!! Do not attempt to remove or test any yellow coated wiring or airbag assembly danger will trigger airbag deployment.

Airbag light stays on


When the Airbag light (SRS waring) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the Airbag 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 the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airbag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the Airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

When the airbag light started flashing and decided to stay on the cruise control stopped working. you can also hear a rattle in the steering wheel. please help


Its the clock spring under the the centre of the steering wheel. You may find that the horn is not working as well as the cruse control, the clockspring connects the air bag sensor to the airbag in the centre of your steering wheel, it keep the connection in contact as the steering wheel turns.
You could replace it yourself if you take the steering wheel off but remember to disconnect the battery first as fiddling with airbags could cause them to go off!!!!

Airbag light flashing


As long as the light is on the airbag system is disabled.

I would suspect that your clockspring behind the steering wheel is going bad. I would have someone with a scan tool that is able to retrieve trouble codes from the airbag system check it for codes to verify this. If so then steering wheel and steering column trim would have to be removed to access the clockspring to replace it.

Airbag light comes on.


Just got my car back from the garage for this exact problem. It started about 3 months ago. The airbag light would go on for no reason. I did notice when this would happen my power windows would not work. All of a sudden it would come back on and everything would be fine. When I took it in the first time the garage coulnt find anything wrong. Then it got cold. Three days ago as I was driving I adjusted my steering wheel and the air bag light came on. Only this time I had my heater on and the heater went off and once again the windows would not work. I moved my steering wheel again and the light went off, the heater came back on and the windows worked again. All of a sudden the airbag light came on and this time it stayed on. Now I had no heat. I took it in and they said for some reason the wires in the steering wheel were being pinched and shorting and this short was had also caused the ignition switch to go bad, which also had to be replaced for the second time in a year. I got my car back, but you can be assured I will not be adjusting the steering wheel. Good Luck.
