Flash Code 42 is for the driver's airbag circuit. Most common problem is with the clock spring or another term is the sliding contact. This is not something you should mess with if you dont know what your doing. As testing wrong can set off the airbag. If you choose to take it apart look for a bad connection, maybe just a wire popped off behind the bag but again caution as these are very dangerous 200 mph deployment! It can kill.

Airbag lights comes on and dont go off


Sadly, you will need a scan tool for this reset. On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights on the ...scanlist.aspx page listed below.

The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Your vehicle will require a scan tool for the proper diagnosis (and not the one at Auto Zone---it needs to be airbag system specific, like a good body shop or the dealer). Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.
Airbagsolutions.com has the fault code charts to tell you what is wrong! Although it's a pay site ($14.95/day), it's a lot cheaper than going to the dealer.

Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) . Most all other vehicles require a scan tool for the diagnosis. Here is a link to the list of vehicle and scanner requirements.
Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

95 Ford E350 air bag light flashes 5 times, then 2 times? What does this mean? Should I be worried? Thanks, Brian


from what i know the 5-2 flash has to do with the clock spring. Any issues with the airbag system need to be looked at. When the light flashes there is a short, and that could cause an issue with random airbags going off or them not going off when you need them. Another sign of the clockspring going bad is the horn either not working or randomly not working. If you dont know what your doing have a shop handle it.

This is a common fault on a FORD.

Usually due to a poor connection on the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and the AirBag fault should clear
