Question about 1998 Ford Escort
My airbag light in my 1998 ford escort stays on constantly and i have replaced my battery 3 times and they die within 3 days. I have had the alternator tested and it was fine. What could be the problem?
It's probably your Clock Spring in your steering column. It's a tape strip of wires behind your steering wheel and if it snapped (which happens very easily) than your blinkers would not shut of automatically(when you turn them on you have to turn them off as well) your airbag light comes on and ceases to work, and most of the time your horn shuts down too. I've had that problem with two of my cars. A 1998 Ford Escort and a 2000 Kia Sephia (Which I dont recommend anyone purchasing. A recall was made on that car because it couldnt have a set of brake pads last more than a month. Sometimes the rotors had to be replaced as well.) Anywho. Have you mechanic look at that or go purchase one and put it in yourself.
