Question about 2006 Lincoln Town Car
The air bag light is another warning indicator that may illuminate on
your dashboard. Airbag problems can be much more complicated to repair
than let's say check engine light problems.
In fact it is recommended that servicing of this important safety system should be performed by professional technicians.
Since the supplemental restraint system (SRS) has been deployed since the 80s the problem of the illuminated air bag light is becoming more common on these aging systems.
Keep in mind that these are very complicated systems and many things can cause the warning light to flash, stay on or not come on at all. In a perfect world everybody would have a scan tool capable of communicating with the SRS module. Some vehicle manufacturers require a scan tool for diagnosis.
If electrical contact should be disrupted between the module and the air bag clock spring a code will be set and the air bag light may flash to indicate that there is a problem. Since this is one of the only components that are constantly moving in the SRS system it is also one of the most common failures.
Replacement of the SRS clockspring requires the removal of the airbag assembly and the steering wheel as well.
