Question about 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab
DTC B1884 / LFC ( Light Flash Code ) 27 is the PAD ( Passenger Air Bag Deactivation ) warning lamp is inoperative.
The light by the key to turn off the passenger air bag is blown, and needs to be replaced.
Radio Shack has bulbs that will work, if you are good with a soldering iron ( instead of purchasing a new PAD key switch ).
Bit of modding to the holder, but works and will outlast the truck, you just need to confirm the direction of the install ( LEDs have polarity to them ) : RadioShack 276-271 Green LED
The other bulb option ( not as bright as factory ) : RadioShack 272-1141
This is a clear bulb with a colored bulb cover. You might need to use a drop of superglue to keep the cover the bulb. Bulbs do not have a polarity, so it is a straight solder in, and it works.
The other option ( besides new from Ford ) is an auto salvage yard, but you don't know how long this bulb will work.
Not too sure if you have a 1999 ( that is the section ) the passenger weight sensor was added with the 2004 New Body style truck, they were not in the 1999 MY trucks.
If you have a newer truck, the PAD is at the top of the center trim panel above the radio. Could be if someone was in there doing work, they did not plug it back in.
The center trim panel on the 04+ MY trucks ( not including the 04 Heritage or L model ) is removed by pulling out on the spring clips that hold it in. Open the ash tray and start at the bottom.
