Customer Question
what fuse controls the chime...
what fuse controls the chime for the air bag restraint system. I have a 2002 with a code that states the passanger restraint has a short but it is functioning fine however the chime continues to go off. Cost to replace a functing restraint and harness is to high on a car with 200,000 miles.

what fues in the fuse box controlls the chime
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
in passanger compartment fuse panel what fuse is it?
Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I don't see a fuse powering the chime. Perhaps you should tell me that code you retrieved and I'll see what I can find about it, plus what relays exactly are you talking about, cause I don't see any restraint relays in the wiring diagram.

Plus what engine is in this and is it 4wd or fwd. Just so I can open the repair manual, cause it asks.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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 needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
