I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The airbag light blinks 4 times

Customer Question

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The airbag light blinks 4 times and then once. What does this mean?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: That's kind of it. Prior to this there was a beeping noise that went on, but that's gone now. I don't really care about it other than the airbag light is blinking.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Auto Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $24 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

Flashout code 41 indicates a circuit issue with the primary cowl crash sensor mounted on the radiator cowl support. It can be caused by the sensor itself, a wiring or connector issue between the sensor and the restraints module or the restraints module. Pinpoint testing would be required to determine which of these is causing the code.

All right so how do I do that?

I did not realize you wanted repair instructions, your question just stated for code definition. I do not provide diagnostic testing for airbag systems because of the risk involved. I will opt out and maybe another expert can help you.
