    Hi mate,

    I have the same problem. When the light is flashing that is your fault codes. You need to count them. It will flash, then there will be a slight pause then it will flash again, then it will stay on all the time. eg 5 flashes, pause, 3 flashes, constant illumination.
    That is the code mine flashes up and I'll be checking it out in the next few days.

    Here are the codes:

    FORD FALCON EF 1994-96 SRS Safety Restraint System (Airbag)
    FORD FALCON EL 1996-98 SRS Safety Restraint System (Airbag)
    Also suits Fairmont, XR6, XR8, Fairlane NF & NL and LTD DF & DL Models
    Fault Codes
    Vehicles built from November 1994-ON:
    Will flash the Fault Codes as they are detected by the ECM via the SRS Checklamp
    Fault Codes must be retrieved manually.
    Start the Engine
    The Airbag (SRS) Checklight will stay on for 6 to 8 Seconds and then extinguish.
    (This indicates the System is operational with no Faults.)
    Faults in the System will cause the Checklight to:
    1. Not illuminate
    2. Constantly illuminate or
    3. Flash the Fault Codes
    The Checklight will not register a Fault for 30 to 45 Seconds after the Ignition is switched ON.
    Fault Codes are displayed as flashes of the Airbag Checklight.
    Example:
    Fault Code 24 is represented by:
    2 Flashes
    (2 Second interval)
    4 Flashes
    (5 Second interval)
    The Code is then repeated.
    The Fault Codes are organised into two groups
    1. The Hard Codes
    These represent the Fault Codes
    (Codes 12 to 45)

    2. The Repaired Codes (Or Intermittent Codes)
    These have 40 added to the Hard Codes (12 + 40 = 52)
    (Codes 52 to 85).
    Example:
    Hard Fault Code 12 (Low Battery Voltage) becomes;

    Repaired Fault Code 52 (When Repaired
    Fault Code Erasure
    The Hard Codes are NOT Erasable.
    Only the Repaired or Intermittent Codes are erasable.
    Faults pertaining to the Hard Fault Codes must first be repaired.
    This Converts the Hard Fault Code to a "Repaired Fault Code" and is NOW Erasable.
    Example:
    If Code 12 (low battery voltage) was displayed (Problem - Faulty Battery)
    It is NON-erasable.
    The Battery is subsequently changed.
    The ECM now sees that the Battery Volts are OK.
    It adds 40 to the Hard Fault Code 12 and displays (12 + 40 = 52)
    Repaired Fault Code 52 (Repaired or Intermittent Code).
    Because the Fault has been repaired, the Fault Code can be erased from the memory.
    This principle applies to all Airbag components.
    To Erase Codes:
    1. Carry out Fault Code Extraction
    2. When the Codes are flashing;
    Connect a Jumper Wire between the Airbag Memory Clear Pin and a Suitable Ground.
    3. Wait for 5 "Beeps" to sound.
    4. Disconnect Jumper Wire.
    5. Switch Ignition OFF.
    6. Carry out Fault Code Extraction for further Codes.
    7. Repeat this Procedure to erase subsequent Codes
    If the Jumper Wire is NOT removed before the Ignition is switched OFF;
    Fault Codes will NOT be cleared.
    Fault Code Extraction
    Switch Ignition ON
    Wait until the Checklight extinguishes. (6 to 8 Seconds)
    Wait for 30 to 45 Seconds.
    One Fault Code will be displayed at a time. (Highest Priority First).
    To Retrieve Successive Fault Codes:
    1 The Fault indicated by the First Fault Code must be repaired.
    2. The Fault Code must be erased.
    3. Carry out Fault Code Extraction again.
    4. The Next Highest Priority Fault Code will then be displayed.
    Fault Code Table (Hard Faults)
    The Fault Codes are listed in order of Highest Priority.
    Code # Circuit and Status
    No Lamp Lamp Circuit
    Continuous
    Lamp Fault Code Timed Out
    ECM Disconnected or Inoperative
    NO Power to ECM

    12 Low Battery Volts

    13 Airbag Circuit
    Shorted to Ground

    14 Primary Impact Sensor
    Shorted to Ground

    21 ECM
    Not Mounted to Vehicle Body

    22 Safing Sensor
    Shorted to Power

    23 Memory Clear Circuit
    Improperly Grounded

    24 System Disarm Failure OR ECM Fault


    32 Airbag Circuit Open OR High Resistance

    33 Resistor High Resistance or Open Circuit
    The Resistor is located on the Wiring Loom near the ECM

    34 Airbag Circuit Shorted OR Low Resistance

    35 Resistor Low Resistance or Shorted
    The Resistor is located on the Wiring Loom near the ECM

    41 Impact Sensor # 1 Feed
    Return Open Circuit

    42 Impact Sensor # 2 Feed
    Return Open Circuit

    44 Impact Sensor # 1
    Not Mounted to Vehicle Correctly


    45 Impact Sensor # 2
    Not Mounted to Vehicle Correctl

    Fault Code Table (Repaired Or Intermittent Codes)

    This list is the same as the Hard Code List.

    The only difference is that 40 has been added to each Component.

    This indicates that the ECM is saying that the component has been;

    1. Repaired OR

    2. Has returned to its Original Preset (intermittent) State.

    The Fault Codes are listed in order of Highest Priority

    Code # Circuit and Status
    52 Repaired or Intermittent Low Battery Voltage

    53 Repaired or Intermittent Airbag Circuit Shorted to Ground

    54 Repaired or Intermittent Primary Impact Sensor Shorted to Ground

    61 Repaired or Intermittent ECM Not Mounted to Vehicle Body

    62 Repaired or Intermittent Safing Sensor Circuit Shorted to Power

    63 Repaired or Intermittent Memory Clear Circuit Improperly Grounded

    64 Repaired or Intermittent System Disarm Failure OR ECM Fault


    72 Repaired or Intermittent Airbag Circuit Open OR High Resistance

    73 Repaired or Intermittent Resistor

    74 Repaired or Intermittent Airbag Circuit Shorted OR Low Resistance

    75 Repaired or Intermittent Resistor

    81 Repaired or Intermittent Impact Sensor # 1 Feed
    Return Open Circuit

    82 Repaired or Intermittent Impact Sensor # 2 Feed
    Return Open Circuit

    84 Repaired or Intermittent Impact Sensor # 1
    Not Mounted to Vehicle Correctly


    85 Repaired or Intermittent Impact Sensor # 2
    Not Mounted to Vehicle Correctly

    Continual
    Flashing Both Impact Sensors Disconnected

    "Beeps" Check Light Inoperative AND some Faults present

    FORD FALCON EF 1994-96 SRS Safety Restraint System (Airbag)

    FORD FALCON EL 1996-98 SRS Safety Restraint System (Airbag)
    Also suits Fairmont, XR6, XR8, Fairlane NF & NL and LTD DF & DL Models

    1. Mounted on the Radiator Support Panel (Approximately the Centre).
    2. Mounted on the Brake Pedal Mounting Bracket directly above the Drivers Footrest.
    (This is in Front of the Heater Duct)

    The Impact Sensors do NOT need to be replaced in the event of Airbag Deployment.
    They Automatically Reset themselves.

    The Impact Sensors are Hard Wired to the Airbag.

    The ECM also contains a Third Impact Sensor (Safing Sensor).
    It also contains an Audible Alarm in case of SRS Checklamp Failure.
    The Audible Alarm will sound;
    5 sets of 5 Beeps every 40 Minutes.

    The Airbag will Deploy in a Front End (or Near Front End) Collision of;
    Approximately the Impact Deceleration Force of 25 kph into a Brick Wall if:

    1. Either (or Both) of the Impact Sensors are activated Plus
    2. The Safing Sensor is activated Simultaneously.

Hi there I had the exact same problem when checking my fuse on the ef falcon with battery connected. I pulled out the Air bag fuse to check because it had a 15 amp fuse in the 10 amp slot, (so as you do you pull it out to check) When I put the fuse back it did something to the air bag light. Boy did I s*** myself. Anyway all I did was took it to the Ford dealership they reset this for me. I mean it only cost me $50.00 (NZ) probably about $40.00 (AU). It only took them 20 seconds to do so don't worry about it too much. The dude told me that an auto electrician could have done the same for less.
