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.
Regards,

Air bag light stays on 1998 ford mustang


You need to check for codes immediately or just take
to a repair shop, when you get any MIL Lamp on your dash

The air bag light is part of a system called SRS (supplemental
restraint system) there are other items,seat belts,other air bags
in some models & many sensors thru out any vehicle,so your focus
is not on the steering wheel air bag until you retrieve codes

You can not solve this yourself because the codes are manufacture
& require a factory manual or data base counter part, to follow proper testing procedures to a sucessful conclusion


When the light is on, it may be that the air bags will be turned off,
so,you never know if that is the case or you may need them

How do i get my air bag sensor light to go off in my Ford Explorer Sport. The airbag sensor light stays on constantly, but the airbag has never deployed.


You need to have the system scanned. When the light is on there is something wrong with the air bag system. The air bag will not deploy when the system has a fault. This is something that is dangerous to drive that way because the vehicle is designed for that to go of in a crash, not to have you hit the air bag. If you have the codes retrieved as part of an estimate and post them I will tell you what to do to get the system back on line.

Air bag light on for ford 2001 suddenly


Be careful. You do not want the air bag to deploy on you suddenly. Check the air bag fuse on the vehical, it may need to be replaced. If your air bags have been deployed recently, the lights do not turn off until the dealer turns them off for you.

Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) Depowering and Repowering

Depowering Procedure

WARNING: Always wear safety glasses when repairing an air bag supplemental

restraint system (SF3) vehicle and when handling an air bag module. This will reduce

the risk of injury in the event of an accidental deployment.

WARNING: Never probe the connectors on the airbag module. Doing so can result in

air bag deployment, which can result in personal injury.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not use any memory saver

devices.

NOTE: Ifa seat equipped with a seat mounted side airbag and or a safety belt

pretensioner (if equipped) system is being serviced, the supplemental restraint system

(SES) must be depowered.

NOTE: The air bag warning lamp illuminates when the RCM fuse is removed and the

ignition switch is ON. This is normal operation and does not indicate a supplemental

restraint system (SRS) fault.

NOTE: The SRS must be fully operational and free of faults before releasing the vehicle

to the customer

1. Turn all vehicle accessories OFF.

2. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

3. At the central junction box (Cm), located below the LH side of the instrument panel,

remove the cover and the restraints control module (RCM) fuse F223 (lOA) from

the CTh. For additional information, refer to the Wiring Diagram Manual.

4. Turn the ignition ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator for at least 30

seconds. The air bag indicator will remain lit continuously (no flashing) if the correct

ROsI fuse has been removed, If the air bag indicator does not remain lit

continuously, remove the correct RCM fuse before proceeding

5. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.

6. WARNING: To avoid accidental deployment and possible personal injury, the

backup power supply must be depleted before repairing or replacing any front or

side air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) components and before set-ricing,

replacing, adjusting or striking components near the front or side air bag sensors,

such as doors, instrument panel, console, door latches, strikers, seats and hood

latches.

To deplete the backup power supply energy, disconnect the battery ground cable

and wait at least one minute. Be sure to disconnect auxiliary batteries and power

supplies (if equipped).

Disconnect the battery ground cable and wait at least one minute.

Repoweri.ng Procedure

1. WARNING: The restraint system diagnostic tool is for restraint system service

only. Remove from vehicle prior to road use. Failure to remove could result in

injury and possible violation of vehicle safety standards.

Make sure all restraint system diagnostic tool(s) that may have been installed during

the repair have been removed from the vehicle and all SRS components are

connected.

2. Turn the ignition switch from OFF to ON.

3. Install the ROsI fuse F2.23 (lOA) to the DB and install the cover.

4. WARNING: Be sure that nobody is in the vehicle and that there is nothing

blocking or set in front of any air bag module when the battery ground cable is

connected.

Connect the battery ground cable.

5. Prove out the supplemental restraint system (SRS) as follows:

Turn the ignition key from ON to OFF. Wait 10 seconds, then turn the key back to

ON and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The

air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn

off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SF3) fault is present, the air bag

indicator will:

- failto light.

- remain lit continuously.

- flash.

The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch

has been turned from the OFF to the ON position. This is the time required for the

restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. if the air bag

indicator is inoperative and a SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of 5

sets of 5 beeps. If this occurs, the air bag indicator and any SRS fault discovered

must be diagnosed and repaired.

How do i reset an airbag code 19?


I assume you are counting the air bag light flash, If so light flash 19 is for an drivers side air bag circuit,problem which could be low resistance,circuit open ,short to voltage short to ground. and cannot be cleared or reset until the concern is corrected.ford motor vehicles air bag light will go out when concern is no longer present but will remain in memory, I would start by inspecting wiring under dash going up to steering wheel ,the air bag connector is located just to right of steering column when sitting in the drivers seat after removing the trim panel below the steering column and is a yellow connector, Please use caution when connecting or disconnecting any connectors to air bag system ,battery should be disconnected for min of ten min's prior to attempting any work on air bag curcuits. I have seen many problems in the past with the air bag itself also with the clock spring ,question does the horn,cruise control and steering wheel controls for audio system (IF SO EQuIPPED) work properly? if not there is very possibly a clock spring problem

Why does my airbag light stay on all the time. Nothing happened to the car the day it just turned on. So I don't believe it need airbag system needs serviced. Even when the battery was disconnected the...


Sounds to me like one of the air bag sensors may have tripped, causing the airbag computer to think the vehicle has been wrecked. Take the vehicle to a dealership and have them reset the air bag sensors to get rid of the light.

It beeps and there is no lights on the dash


make sure your air bag light is operating. if the airbag light is burnt out on the instrument cluster, it will beep an audible tone to let you know there is a problem since there is no working warning light. turn key on (but dont start vehicle) and see if the air bag light comes on and shuts off (its called "prove-out") if it does not come on at all, chances are... the light for air bag warning on cluster is burnt out
