Question about 2001 Mercury Villager
Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.
Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles
Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)
Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)
Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)
I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.
I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)
Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.
Please rate me answer if it is useful to you.

If the Air Bag or SRS light is flashing this indicates there is a problem with the system. Due to the fact that working with the SRS can be very hazardous I recommend you seek professional help. Once the problem is repaired they will reset the light. The light will just come back on unless the problem is repaired.

1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the 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 th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel
