Common fault on FORD

Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.

Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

    Awesome! Thank you for this answer. I developed a flashing airbag light and visited many websites without finding an answer. I was looking at second-hand airbag units on eBay and was not liking the cost / availability. Feeling like I might have to part with some money I then came across this site. Went and looked under the passenger seat and sure enough ..... yellow plastic connector no longer connected. Thanks everyone! :-)

Hi, the airbag light on means your car has the obd2 code problem, you need a tool to read out can delete the code, I know this tool is helpful for your car, or you can take it to the fealer, they will test it for you. hope help.

Can you reset airbag warning light on 2005 ford focus ? . has been on diagnostics and it came back as apron over drivers door but they apparentley didnt have the right machine to do a simulation or...

please DO NOT even try to access airbag,if you short circuit it it will blow,and poss consequences are you will need a new takes about 1x20th of a second from flat to fully out....most problems are sensors,not airbags,and anyway, surely you are still under warranty???????speak nicely to the area manager if you have to or you could go to watchdog.....

not sure what the sound was, but if there's a blown head gasket, the water that gets in a cylinder won't compress and it won't turn over very well and sometimes not at all. that may be what they mean by "holding compression".

check for water in the'll foam up on the dipstick,

Get a second opinion from a reputable shop other than Ford.... If it's a head gasket, it's much cheaper than an engine swap, if that's what you're thinking...
