Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
I have a 2002 Ford Taurus SES and the air bag light is flashing code 52 then staying on
Code 52 relates to low voltage detected in a capacitor inside the airbag module. 45 seconds after key on, this capacitor should have a voltage of around 23 volts.
This capacitor stores energy to deploy the airbag in the case of a collision.
Because your airbag light is on, your system is deactivated (cannot deploy)
In your case, the airbag computer detects less than 23 volts at that capacitor 45 seconds after key on, and disables the system.
There is a diagnostic procedure involved in fixing this problem, but usually means a bad airbag module (computer)
This should only be checked by a qualified technician, as airbag service can be dangerous and there are strict procedures to follow so the bags don't inflate suddenly and cause injury.
