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)

Seat covers

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 connectivityhow to reset airbag light on 2008 ford fusion - 2_bing.gif 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.

Here's a couple of things you can try. First, disconnect the positive battery terminal on the battery for 5 minutes or so. If this doesn't make the light go out and stay out then I would take it by your local auto parts store, they will check for any trouble codes free of charge and that will point you in the right direction. Hope this helps.

There is a problem with the SRS or the light would not be on. You must have the problem repaired or the light will just come back on. Due to the fact that working on the SRS can be very hazardous, I recommend you have this repair performed by a professional. Take it back to your Ford dealer and see if they will repair it for free. The SRS just may still be under warranty. Good luck and I hope you get this repaired at no cost to you.

How to reset airbag light 2006 Mercury Milan and Ford Fusion


Which airbag light is on? The one on the instrument cluster or the one over the radio that says passenger air bag off? If its the one on the instrument cluster, then there is a system fault detected. If its the one that says passenger air bag off. Then the system thinks the right front seat is occupied but the weight is too low deploy the airbag.

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion and the seat belt chime goes off all the time even if the seat belt is worn. How do I fix that?


This veh has an airbag system and that lamp system is part of it. It is not recommended for one without the proper training to attempt to diagnose or repair due to the danger of setting off the airbags.
It needs to be scanned by a shop that has a scanner that is capable of scanning the RCM (Airbag System)system.

Chances are the seat belt buckle switch is bad or switch is unhooked. that would require replacement or re-connection.
if you try and look at it for connection be sure and unhook the neg battery cable and wait about 15-20 min for the back reserves to deplete in the RCM.

My 06 ford fusion airbag light comes on and stays on


Airbag systems should never be worked on by consumers who are not professionals with the Airbag system. You will need to take the vehicle in to the dealership to have the Airbag system professionally serviced, and to avoid problems with your insurance company. Airbag systems are very delicate, and consists of crash sensors in various points on the vehicle, as well as a system of wires, and an Airbag computer module. Usually the Airbag light comes on if the system has been activated, or become faulty. Once again, never work on the Airbag system yourself, take it to the dealership to have it serviced.
