Question about 2006 Ford F-150
When i turn on my vehicle the air bag light remains on until i shut it down is there something the truck is trying to tell me
Yes, you are correct. The air bag warning light is indicating a malfunction of the air bag system has been detected by the air bag control module. The problem could be anything from a sensor defect to a wiring issue.
You can take the truck to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your truck for trouble codes. They will scan the truck at no charge and report the trouble codes that are present. Write the codes down and respond back, we can begin to diagnose the issue.
