Does the air bag light flash before staying on, if so can you count those flashes?

no
Ford Mechanic: Chris (aka- Moose), Technician replied 9 months ago

Normally there are flash codes that can help us diagnose this without a scan tool. Since it does not flash then the air bag module is the more likely issue here. If you have access to a scan tool and can get me the codes which are stored I can help much better or supply any information you feel like would help.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris

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.
