Customer Question
I have a 2000 Ford...
I have a 2000 Ford Explorer, changed out my driver seat with an older seat. Of course now I get a trouble code B1994. This states air bag problems in the drivers seat. This seat I installed does not have an air bag. How can I fix this?

the code B1994 is for driver side air bag circuit high resistance.

you are right.

the only way to correct this is to put a seat with an airbag. but you can drive it like that with no problem. air bags will still function normally, only the SRS light will be illuminated

the only way it will work is to rig the harness and that can be dangerous and the air bags can deploy so im afraid i have no more info i appreciate your time

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • WORK TIME, I am here 7 days a week but not all hours of the day, do not worry I will respond.
  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.
  • UPLOADED LINKS, if I upload dropbox links, without the phone app use the box on the top right for direct download.
  • RATING ANSWERS, please let me know what you need from me so you are pleased with my answer.

Different tech here.

The other opted out.

You need an airbag simulator to plug up in place of the seat airbag. This will trick the restraint module with the correct resistance making it think the airbag is there. Use this link https://www.dropbox.com/s/v0av6tourlsifoe/simulator.png?dl=0 search on the internet for these tool numbers so you can buy one.

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

Sorry, i've been away. The seat I installed has an "end" plug, seems to be what it that would be for, right? I have read numerous forums and it seems Ford has used in those years.

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.
