My srs light blinks...

My srs light blinks 5 then 2 times and after cycling a few times like that it stays on....had a bad alternator overcharging and after replacing that the srs light started to stay on? any suggestions?

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

Haven't checked but don't think so

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

1995 ford windstar

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

Haven't checked anything yet and I am trying to fix myself if possible

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

I did have to replace a fuse under dash for my blower motor for interior rear controls but haven't checked anything else due to bad alternator

What Customers are Saying:

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.

BRNew Jersey
