Customer Question
Hi there, the airbag...

Hi there, the airbag light all of a sudden wont turn off, I was hoping it was something I could remedy myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?

Could be, I didn't check however I always wear my belt, I'll check for sure, the belt was working just fine a few minutes ago

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

It's a 2005 Zx5 focus hatchback

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Hatchback yourself? What have you tried so far?

I just tried resetting it, and I tried checking the connections under the passenger and driver seats

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't think so

Can you have someone check for codes as this is the first step to diagnose this issue . But it has to be a code reader or scanner cable of pulling this type of code up . If your not familiar with SRS systems , do not attempt to check or repair yourself as this is a dangerous system and can cause injury id not done right.

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 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.
