2002 Ford Focus SVT. The car had been sitting awhile and battery died. I boosted it and noticed two warning lights were lit on the dash. An exclamation point and the airbag symbol were both lit in yellow, even after the seat belts were fastened. Also the fasten seat belt warning was on, even after the belts were fastened. What are the warning lights for(in yellow) and why the warning sign even after fastening?

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.

 

Below is a chart showing the warning lights and their definitions.

You will need to test the Air bag system for codes. That is the reason the air bag warning light is or. As for the other one, check the brake fluid level. But also check the vehicle for codes.

The warning lights come on to tell the driver that the modules have sensed a problem a light the light to alert the driver.

Will a weak battery cause these codes?

Have you restarted the vehicle without jump starting it from another vehicle?

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

No, it will not start without a jump.

You may want to have the battery tested, actually load tested for the proper CCA (Cold Cranking Amps).

Low battery voltage can cause any number of electrical issues and warning lights.
