When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

My air bag light keeps coming on. What do I do?


There are several sensors related to air bags. Normally when the panel light is on it indicates the air bag in NOT FUNCTIONAL. You should have this check by a reliable shop or dealer. If you and not sure of how to test or check an air bag system you shouldn't tinker with the system. It is possible to set off the air bag(s) accidentally. That could be dangerous.

"air bag" light keeps coming on. goes away when I


Try wiggling the seat belt receptacle on the drivers side. If not you will need to take it to get the air bag codes pulled so we can look at whats going on. Try beeping the horn also. There is a wire that brakes sometimes behind the steering wheel called the clock spring this also works the horn circuit.

the air bag light could be caused by a bad "clockspring" as for the MAF, define "bad" and what are the quality of the parts you are buying. If they are not from FORD, they are junk.

The airbag light is constanstly flashing in the car and I was wondering what the problem could be with this and would it be expensive to sort out?


The light can go on for something relatively inexpensive like a bad impact sensor to something large like a bad air bag or computer. You won't be able to tell until it's scanned and diagnosed. Keep in mind when the air bag light is on or flashing that the system is deactivated and won't deploy the bags in the event of a collision.
