Hi,

Code 13 means Airbag Circuit - Shorted to Ground. It could be anywhere from steering column ( could cause Horn Problems ) to dome connection. This could be Dangerous and ONLY handled by Certified Techs.There is Certain Testing needs to be done which could only be taken care by the tech's on site.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Both my front windows do not work, and as a side note, when there is someone in the front passenger seat, now and then the warning light goes off for the airbag.


the air bag system runs constant diagnostic checks.It then will display a code one flash two flash and so on.Most common is the battery backup code.Check fuses under the hood for air bag.For your power windows check fuses under hood.Then check your window relay to see if its working.Swap it out for a similar one.Check fuses inside vehicle also.check wire connection for power windows.

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

2006 Taurus, airbag light flashes once, then eight times and repeats. I can hear something sliding around inside the steering wheel when I turn. Cruise control and horn don't work either. How do I...


i do not suggest to attempt repairing or diagnosing an air bag system without the proper tools or training. it is entirely possible (and has happened!) that the air bags can deploy inadvertantly upon diagnosis. however now that i have read you your safety rights.....there is no lamp fault code "8" the manner you speak of the flashing light is called a lamp fault code or LFC for short. there is a delay inbetween sequences of flashes. it may indicate a code "44" or maybe "18" or "13"..here are the descriptions of the codes i listed

13 Crash Data Memory Full INSTALL a new RCM and impact sensors.
18 PAD Warning Lamp Circuit Failure
44 Restraint System — Impact Sensor Status (Passenger Side Impact Sensor Circuit Failure
your air bag system is under manufacturers warranty for 5 years or 50,000 miles. i would encourage you to seek professional assistance from your local dealer. your life may depend on it!

good luck

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.


Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

SRS light now repeatedly blinks 5-1 problem code - stop/reset?


Sounds like an air bag problem. You will not be able to reset the light without fixing the problem. The steering wheel airbag electrical contact is suspect. Airbag will have to be removed and problem repaired. . I do not recommend you repair the problem unless qualified.

Air bag


If the air bag light is blinking count the blinks for the code. Example.. If the air bag light flashes once and then a short pause and then two blinks you would have a code 12. and so on. If it just stays on you will need to take it into a repair shop and get it checked. My best guess without looking at it would be that the clockspring is not working properly. Most of the time when the clockspring goes out other things stop working like the horn or cruise control or something that is on the steering wheel. Hope this helps.
