2002 ford escape air...

2002 ford escape air bag warning light flashing pulses of 3 then 7 ...37

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

Not obviously..

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

I moved the seat all the way forward and checked the connectors under the seat?

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

This problem started out sporadically but is steadily broke all the time now

Hi, My name is Jay

When the airbag light flashes light code 37 then the airbag system is seeing a problem in the passenger side airbag and will store one or more codes in airbag module. There are four different codes that can be stored for the same flashed code 37 in memory. This is problem specific for the same airbag but will be more precise as to the problem like a short or open or incorrect ohms resistance of the airbag circuit. You will need to have the code retrieved and that code tested using dealer specific tools to simulate a good airbag so the wiring can be checked. This will isolate if it is a wiring or airbag failure.

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.

MollyUSA

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.
