Customer Question
98 E250 w/5.4l airbag...

98 E250 w/5.4l airbag lamp flashes twice then four times and runs rough a week after installing new fuel pump?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Ford. The Ford Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

It seems like too much fuel maybe but why air bag lamp flashing 2-4? then engine running rough

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I hope so I am a certified technician and I am trying to assist my friend father

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?

New fuel pump last week and now airbag lamp flashing twice then four times I am confused that is normally an engine lamp

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.
