SOURCE: Air bag light blinks 4 times then pauses then 4

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.


Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

The system needs to be checked for cades. Airbag codes are pulled out of the ECU with the use of a scanner tool. A good auto mechanic shop will have this or you can go to the dealer. YOU SHOULD NOT TRY TO REPAIR THIS YOURSELF,YOU COULD ACTIVATE THE AIRBAG!!!!!

SOURCE: air bag light blinking

get this checked out asap. This indicates the air bag system has a problem, and may not deploy in the event of an accident. Did you just purchase the car w/ this problem, or have u had it a while? I ask, because if u purchased it w/ the blinking light, it could indicate the car was in an accident, the air bag deployed, and it wasn't replaced when repairs were made. That's the worse case scenario, get it checked, hopefully it's something not that serious. Let me know how u make out Curt

This is common with a lot of Fords. There will be a connector underneath your passenger seat. Push the ends tightly together as this connector is known to come loose

My 2004 mercury sable air bag light blinks on and off 3 times...tried the battery thing..the switch thing..cant get to reset


When the air bag system has a problem it uses the air bag light tell you what the codes are. Three flashes then 1 or 2 second pause then 2 flashes would be a code 32. Then Google it and find out what the code is for. Hope this helps

I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra displaying an air bag code 20. This code is displayed on my genesis computer diagnostic machine. Any suggestions?


I suggest you take it to a dealer , a qualified tech should resolve this problem, DO NOT attempt to fix, if air bag is sending a code it could deploy and seriously injure you or your passenger. hopefully its an easy fix, but right now it could be dangerous !!!!!!

Madza 3 passenger air bag on - no bad fuses, found pop can rattling under passenger seat, how to get light off


You will need to have the computer scanned to find out whats faulty.I would think that you have a faulty air bag module somewhere.Only a scan tool can tell you which one is bad.After its replaced the light will turn off.

Air bag light


It means that there is a problem with your air bag. It should be blinking a code. Count the blinks. In otherwords it should blink twice, pause and then blink 7 more times indicating a code 27 which would be a burned out bulb on PAD. Count blink code and the google your truck year and air bag code and then the code and see what the forums are saying about it and what to check.

Air bag light blinks then syays on


If you mean the passenger airbag light no longer lights up and airbag light on the dash blinks at start-up and then stays on; the read the below and check this site:

www.automotivehelper.com

I went to radio shack cost me $2.99 for 3 bulb packet. But the post below worked. It really didn't that long, pretty easy job. Took longer to find the tools. The first guys idea/fix, the second guy gave pretty good instructions. Just a little more detail: (3) the clips are one each side of the panel; (5) these two screws are on the inside lower part of module, (6) unclip the plastic tabs from the back (where the plug end is) first and it should lift up easily.

-------------
I had this happen on my 98 Ranger.(code 27) My light on the module that turns off the passenger side airbag was burnt out. I went to Radio Shack and bought a 12v light with wires attached and soldered them to the existing light.(didn't even take it out!) It fixed it!! Cost, about $1.50 and 20 minutes of fix time.

Note: If the light by the key switch to turn off the passenger side airbag does not work, it disables the entire airbag system! Hope yours is as easy to fix.

----------

gerg,

Thanks for your post. I have no way to read codes, but I heard the five tone alarm every time I started the vehicle and the passenger air bag off light did not light up. I was skeptical, but tried your advice and it worked.

Parts:
1) 12-volt colored lamp (Radio Shack part: 272-1099)

Tools:
1) socket set
2) philips head screw driver
3) soldering iron

Procedure:
1) remove ash tray from console panel
2) using a socket set, remove 4 hex head screws from console panel
3) pull console panel out of the two clips
4) remove connector from air bag key module in console panel and take console panel to a work bench
5) remove 2 philips head screws to remove the airbag key module
6) carefully unclip the plastic tabs that hold the airbag key module case together
7) remove connector circuit board from air bag key module
8) solder the yellow replacement lamp to the two solder pads for the original lamp on the back side of the circuit board (which wire to which pad does not matter)
9) tie the replacement lamp in place next to the original lamp
10) replace the circuit board in the airbag key module and snap the case back together
11) connect the airbag key module in the truck and start the engine to check that the lamp illuminates and that the alarm does not sound
12) screw the aribag key module back into the console panel
13) snap the console panel back into the truck
14) replace the 4 hex head screws
15) replace the ash tray

Air bag light blinking


Every blink is a number. The code is composed of two numbers. Read the code and check what is wrong on error table code. By example at http://autorepair.about.com/library/images/bl797lib.htm, or you can google for the codes of the SRS. After you know what is wrong it gonna be easy to fix it (I didnt said cheap).

Air bag light comes on and stays on. Never any accidents.


Had the same problem, found the wire disconnected under the driver seat (there is a yellow plug and with one red wire, which is fine, and one green wire, which is broken. Fixed the wire, light went off.
