Take it back to the shop who did the work and make sure all the engine wire connectors are on and locked, also check the air inlet hoses to the engine for loose clamps

I have a 99 ford contour, my check engine light came on and ran the code p0102 which is the MAF sensor. I replaced the MAF and my car still runs horrible (idles rough and wants to stall around 10% idle)....

Your new MAFS is not plug and play... you must clear all learnt data / fuel trim from ECU

Here is how:

Disconnect battery on + side, hold the + lead to earth (body, engine or chassis) this diffuses the system. Leave disconnected for 10 minutes, reconnect, start car and take on a 12 mile minimum drive (this is know as a drive cycle) pull over safely, switch off engine (new data now stores in ECU), start engine and happy motoring :o)

Air bag light flashing and check engine is on 1998 ford contour is this factry default never been wrecked

no its not a defect you have a wiring problem and you should have it checked by a qualified mechanic.

You air bag will not work if that light is on. And the check engine light is a totally different issue, you will need to find out what code is making the light come on.

Any major parts store can give you that info for free.
