Probably its just coincidence but the accident dont have much to do with the error code .. This is a common problem ,, basically there is a device called a clock spring in the steering wheel, this device is like a bearing with a coil that turns with the steering yet allows the air bag in the steering to be powered. Now this has brushes and wires and a bearing fitted in such a manner the steering can turn freely without breaking contact. Well eventually the wires break and it needs replacing. This involves removing the steering and replacing the spring. I strongly suggest you get a professional to do this as there is no room for error reasons being

  1. the clock spring needs to be set propperly 1 1/2 turns left and 1 1/2 turns right if not your steering will not function as it should and you wont be able to make turns left or right and over turn on the other end (big problem) as it can lead to accidents.
  2. you can discharge the air bags and that's bad as its expensive to replace, not mention your air bags use gun powder to discharge ,, this can cause critical injuries m burns etc..
  3. if the wiring is wrong , you can blow the ecu as the ecu directly controls the air bags on a 12 volt relay.. Well i guess you get the point.
simply put your's needs replacing..

What does it mean when the airbag light flashes twice and then twice again


It means that the airbag system has detected an electrical problem and may not work properly in an accident. The same light will flash if an airbag-less aftermarket steering wheel is installed unless a special kit is installed to eliminate the flash.

2013 Volkswagen Beetle airbags did not deploy in my accident


The airbag technology uses many factors when deploying. If it doesn't see the need, they won't pop out at you possibly injuring you more than the small accident. When I was clipped on my rear corner and spun me around in the intersection, they didn't pop. But a head first hit popped them. The primary sensor is behind the front bumper

Airbag warning lights flashing on dashboard of mazda premacy 52 reg can I reset to clear these lights myself?


there are a quite a few problems associated with the airbag light flashing. The light will flash in long and short frequencies, this is a diagnostic code, e.g. two long flashes followed by six short flashes equals code 26, which is clockspring. Other codes are: 46 and 47 connector under seat, 3 power supply etc.

Airbag light keeps flashing


That indicates a fault with the airbag system, and your airbags will not operate in the event of an accident.

Take your car to a good mechanic or local Ford dealer to have the problem determined.

Keep in mind that if you live in an area that does anual vehicle saftey inspections, your car will not pass inspection with that light flashing or on.

Flashing Airbag Light Prior to Startup


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.
The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

04 f350 airbag light flashes 7 times then 3 times


Are you sure it is not 4 then 7? There is a code 47 but no code 74. If it is 47 then that would be the passenger side seat belt pretensioner.Has this vehicle been in an accident? This is a deployable device so I would be kinda careful with it. I wouldn't recommend doing much more than making sure that a wire isn't disconnected or broken. It is in the buckle section. It is designed to pull belt tighter during a collision.
