It means you have high resistance in the drivers or passengers side air bags... Heres the deal. check if the vehicle has side airbags usually noted on the side of the seats with the word air bag.. if there are no side air bags in the car than someone has put the wrong module in the vehicle. If it has side air bags go under the seats and check all electrical connectors to see if wires are broken or anything is unplugged. sometimes they unplug themselves from moving the seats or putting things under the seats.

2000 taurus airbag light blinks 3 then 7


your airbag light blinks 3 then 7 That means the airbag module has loss connection to the passenger airbag. Take a look under the passenger seat for a 2-wire connector (sometimes white tipped) and make sure it's plugged in tight.

2006 Ford Taurus air bag light on control panel blinks several times then stays on all the time while driving. There is no alarm going off though. Does that mean my airbags are not working?


yes it means your airbags are not working. you need to have it put on ford spec diagnostic equipment at your local ford dealer to have it repaired. some small shops may be able to do it, just depends on if they have the right diag equipment.

2000 Ford Escort SE repair costs?


If you turn it into insurance this vehicle could be totaled out. Aribags are not cheap. You also have to replace the sensors and module, as they are NOT reusable. The passenger airbag could be part of the entire dash cover, Windshields I have seen as low as 120 installed. Theo., you could have 600-1000 tied up in doing it yourself. Fyi I hit a deer , did not hurt my winshield or airbags. Cost 2500 to repair.

P0153 error code for 2000 Ford Taurus SES V6 3.0L


the tech is right.. the trouble codes do not tell you what is wrong with the car... they just give you a general area to look in which involves testing multiple components and sensors. if the tech quoted you for and hour diag time i would say that you should at least expext to spend somewhere in the 300$ area depending on part cost.

Airbag lt on


Hi!

Code 51 means: Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse ä Fuse Blown Due to Intermittent Short to Ground. It means that the computer controlling the airbags sensed a short in the wiring and disabled itself by tripping an internal fuse for safety reasons so that the air bag cannot be deployed accidentally. To repair the car, the wiring problem must be fixed, and then the airbag module replaced. Look for smashed wires, wires that are rubbing against bare metal or other wiring damage affecting the airbag circuits. This wiring is all under the plastic cowl around the steering column.

Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further clarification.

Thanks

Air Bag Code


Code 52 relates to low voltage detected in a capacitor inside the airbag module. 45 seconds after key on, this capacitor should have a voltage of around 23 volts.

This capacitor stores energy to deploy the airbag in the case of a collision.

Because your airbag light is on, your system is deactivated (cannot deploy)

In your case, the airbag computer detects less than 23 volts at that capacitor 45 seconds after key on, and disables the system.

There is a diagnostic procedure involved in fixing this problem, but usually means a bad airbag module (computer)

This should only be checked by a qualified technician, as airbag service can be dangerous and there are strict procedures to follow so the bags don't inflate suddenly and cause injury.
