Customer Question
I have a 1995...

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The airbag light blinks 4 times and then once. What does this mean?

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

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.

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?
Ford Mechanic: Kenny Z., Ford Senior Master Tech replied 2 years ago

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.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
