Question about 1998 Ford Contour

1 Answer

Hello, I just bought a 1998 ford contour, with the airbag light constantly blinking on and off. Could you please tell me what controls that and how I fix it. I am trying to find a repair guide online also and if you could help me with a good website that might have the manual available to download and print out I would appreciate that also. Thanks, Ari Schlesinger

Air bag light is blinking would like to know what is wrong with it

You have a fault in your airbag system. Therefore, you have no airbags at this time. The blinking then pause, then blinking again is giving a code to tell what the fault is.
