Ford Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi 3udb91s this is lostrider, the flashing of the air bag light is a code for the fault, here is a description on how to read the code, need you to tell me what the code is and then we can go from there with the diagnosis and repairs.
Thank you for the reply, then what your telling me is its a code 22, the code is for the safing sensor that is mounted in the right kick panel, here is the testing procedure for the code, it can be a bad sensor, the air bag monitor or a wiring concern, you will need a Volt/OHM meter to do the testing, the car is safe to drive with the light flashing or on, the air bag system is disabled when this occurs, so if the car is in an accident the air bags will not deploy, and they will not deploy with this concern prematurely. you will have to do the test to find the failure, hope this helps.
The Safing Sensor is located behind the bottom of the RH kick panel.
The Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor is located in the center underneath the instrument panel.
