This airbag light thing is pretty common in Fords. I had a 2002 Ford Escape XLS, but had the exact same problem mentioned above.
Here is my solution, What I did, is disconnect the airbag plug that is located underneath the driver's seat. Clean the electrical prongs with a dry toothbrush or any bristle brush. After reconnecting, the light should not come on anymore. I didn't have any problems for about 6 months, that's when the blinking airbag light came back. I disconnected the plug again and cleaned it once again. This time I bent the metal prongs just a tad bit and then reconnected them again. I think the prongs don't get very much contact, so bending just a bit should help that. This time the light never came back on.

Good luck!!!

To turn off the airbag light on my truck

If your airbag light is on, that means the airbag doesn't work in case of a crash. So it's important you get it checked, most likely there is a bad contact between the airbag ecu and the airbag, a common bad contact is in the wiring in the steering collum.

Airbag light flashing 1-8

If this is for a truck, it has something to do with the indicator lamp for the passenger side airbag. You would need the diagnostic test for that code to fix the problem.

I have a 1997 pickup truck.. and my airbag light came on. How do i get it to turn off?

You'll need to find out what code is associated with the light coming on, either the impact sensors, the airbag, or the control module is bad.

Air bag lite on,fuses ok

The airbag light being on indicates that the airbag system has a fault and has been disabled by the control module, the most common cause is the rotating contact under the steering wheel, known to techs as the clock-spring contact. If you under take replacing it be careful to disarm the airbag or serious injury may result from unintentional airbag deployment.
