Possibly a short in the system or a disconnected cannon plug in the front bumper area...but i"d advise not to work on this system unless you're familiar with it..!!

You have a problem with a sensor, the 'brain' module, or a clock-spring.
Assuming that the car has had no accident ever, you may want to check the clock-spring first. It is a easy repair.

SOURCE: Ford fiesta 1.3 01. Engine warning light on

It sounds like a mass airflow sensor

SOURCE: Airbag dashboard light keeps blinking. In 1997 Ford Thunderbird.

The air bag computer will have to be scanned and the code read to know what the fault the computer detects. The problem will have to be repaired for the light to shut off. Keep in mind, when the air bag light is illuminated the air bag system is deactivated. Meaning, in the event of a collision the bags won't deploy.

Hi, the likely problem is the clockspring. Repair requires special tools, including a steering wheel puller. Please let me know if you would like instructions for repair, and thanks for using FixYa.

Ford fiesta 96 air bag light flashes once every few seconds, what could this problem be?

it may be the sensor is playing up as a few fords have that problem with their airbag sensors. but the best thing to do is to take it to a certified mechanic and have them test it. preferably with a scan tool. a ford dealership would have one of these.

How do I turn off the passenger airbag on a 2004 Ford Fiesta?

This car is equipped with 2nd generation "Smart Airbags", this means that the system automatically disables itself when a child under 50 pounds (there is a sensor in the seat cushion) is setting in the passenger seat, so there is no need to have a switch like the old systems.

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.
