The airbag has a seperate control module located under the dash.It is mounted with your brake control module under the dash on the floor (on the hump).You can get them from a higher end junk yard that will pull it for you if you don't want to.Or go digging yourself.I put a used on in mine and it worked fine.

The air bag light is meant to stay illuminated when there is a system malfunction. The testing and diagnostic procedures can be complicated for the inexperienced person, and require a Diagnostic Readout Box (DRB). Great care has to be exercised when servicing air bag systems, as accidental deployment of the air bag can be dangerous. You should refer this one to the dealer.

Cruise control and horn stopped working

Check your fuses first, then a vacuum leek second. To reset the air bag light unplug the battery for 30 seconds then reconnect. If the light comes back on take it to a garage as the air bag can be very dangerous.

Locate fuse for airbag

this fuse is in the under dash fuse panel and should be marked srs,a/b(air bag),or you could check the fuses with a test light.these rarely go bad unless there was a short in the air bag system tht will have to be checked out.

Air bag light flashes, flashes again and than stays on. Thought it was a fuse but that was not the problem. # 22 and #23 Fuses were good and the circuits were good. Still don't know the problem. If anyone...

here is one thing that i do before i remove the dash and connect the air bag light to the oil switch light or the gen light and to check the contacts under the front seats ,their is a connection block and a pyrotechnic connection under the seat ,remove the front seatrs and clean the connections with a soft lead pencil --often works if it sdoesnt then reire the light as its a annual vehicle inspection item here and a failure and when you go back to the dealers with their encrypted software diagnostic ,then its always a new module and air bags costing more than the vehicle is worth .So long as you dont drink and drive who needs them

94 Concorde electrical

I have a similar problem with my 94 concorde... and was advised the on board computer was in need of replacement. Further research led to pulling the computer and cleaning the ground connection to the chassis. It will sometimes leak under the computer and corrode, and compromise the ground, which in turn will cause faulty "code" readings and the engine control light to come on.
