Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
90% of the time its not an airbag thats bad, but rather a clockspring in the steering column or a seatbelt buckle switch. you will need to have the srs computer scanned with a scan tool and there will be a code or codes that will tell you what part of the system has failed, for example there will be a code # then discription of the problem like ******* drivers seatbelt buckle , may be the code and then you would check and see if the connection is good and the connector is connected and if all looked good then you would replace the buckle. the only problem is you would need to pay a shop to get it checked unless you haveaccess to a scanner, good day.

HI there. The best way to find out which air bag is bad is to have the OBD2 trouble codes read. Autozone and many other auto parts stores will read the trouble codes on your vehicles computer system for free. I strongly advise that you don't tinker with the air bag system or the air bags themselves because the danger they can pose if they deploy with youhanldeing them, especially of you have some tools in your hand. Just have them read the codes so you can find out which one it is then you can replace it. Before you do ANYTHING with the air bad system you need to disconnec your battery and leave it disconnected for at lest 20 minutes to make sure that the capasitors have discharged. While working on the system make sure the battery stays disconnected. If you are unsure at all on doing the replacement yourself have a qualified mechanic do it. I hope that this helps you out and please be safe.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must
now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and
"scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
