I have a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8. The air bag light

I have a 1998 Lincoln Mark 8. The air bag light flashes 5 times pauses and then flashes once. It then stops for a few seconds and starts over. I imagine this is a code 51 indication. Can anyone help me?

SOURCE: 95 Lincoln Mark 8 won't shutoff.

check the ignition switch and if this be the case it is cheaper to find a salvage yard and have the column same as yours and change the whole thing just take the steering column to a lock smith along with the key and they will rekey it to the new column

SOURCE: Air Bag Indicator Light blinks on 1995 Lincoln Town Car

The blinking light is giving you a code and according to what you have listed that would be a code 25. However there is no code 25 for this system are you sure that it is not a 52 instead? If so then this code is for a loss of power to the module. Did you have battery go dead recently? If this is the case then you can clear it yourself. You will have to locate a gray 2 wire connector behind the glove box first. Here are the instructions to clear the code 52.

  1. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.
  1. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ± two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.
  1. Locate the Diagnostic "Trouble Code Clear" Connector located underneath the glove compartment (06010) containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).
  1. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground. This short must be made after the diagnostic trouble code flashes completely one time, but before the warning light stays on continuously.
  1. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).
  1. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). This short must be released within 25 seconds after the diagnostic monitor tone sounds.

There are several ways to fix this. On some of the Air ride models you can put in regular springs and replace the Air bags. To work with what you have, you need to diagnose the bad parts and then make your decisions.

Your Air ride has a diagnostic plug like the kind you hear about for the engine. You need to take it to a Body shop or Independent or even a Dealer and see what parts you car needs. Some Autozones and Oreillys might have this specialized scanner for the Air ride.

The Air pump can be obtained used at Salvage yards. So can the Suspension bags and any switches you need. Some yards are now giving 1 year free exchange warranties. Others are 30days to 90days. You will need a Repair shop who is willing to use Used parts. But you may not have a bad pump with the other problems you are having. You can even get rebuilt Air bags.

You can expect the pump to be slow if the air is being released as fast as the pump is putting it in. There is an electric switch in each corner of your car which can bleed off the air. You may only have 1 bad switch. This is why an accurate Diagnosis is important to saving you money.

If anyone has jacked up your car without turning off the Air ride, it is very easy to throw the switches out of adjustment. You may only need to adjust and not replace the switches. The adjustment procedure needs to be done on a surface like the body shops use. This would be a verified flat surface or a Frame machine. If you had one wheel sagging it would be pretty easy to work on the one side. But with your symptoms it could be anything.

About the only thing you can do is look under the car while it is running and listen for escaping air. It is not going to be easy with the engine and pump running.

2002 lincoln ls air bag light flashes 3times for 5 times in a row

The light can flash a two digit code - try counting the flashes between a pause.
You will need to get the system scanned and cleared once the repairs are made.

A beeping noise came on and the air bag light does not come on

If you are hearing a series of 5 beeps, 5 beeps and then a pause and it repeats, the airbag light is burnt out, and there is an error that the LFC ( light Flash Code ) needs to report.

Pull the cluster, and replace the airbag light, and then pay attention to the LFC that will be given ( example, 1 flash short pause, 8 flashes, slightly longer pause, then repeat the 1-8 pattern again, jsut as an example ).

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.
