What is 2001 Ford Ranger airbag trouble code 46?
From what I can tell, that code refers to a fault in one of the crash sensors at the front of the vehicle. You may want to consult the pro's on this one.

I have a 2000 Ranger. I found in my Owners guide........... Find the "CLK" button, hold it down and press "seek" up or down to change the hour. Continue to hold the "CLK" button down and press the "tune" button up or down for the minutes. The radio must be turned off for this procedure. I have a 20…01 with a factory 6-CD changer, and the procedure is a little different from the one above. With ignition on and radio off, to set the clock, you press the "menu" button. The display prompts you to set hours. Do so by using the "select" key. Then it prompts you to set minutes. Do so by using the same "select" key as for hours. Press "menu" again, and the clock is set. Now, I gotta figure out how to unjam the 6 CD's left in the unit by previous owner... I have the same 6 CD changer and every now and then I too have CD's stuck in there for days. then magically it starts working again. If a good CD gets stuck for a couple weeks........Bye Bye CD player. I love my music. and no CD player is gonna steal my CD's. (MORE)
Answer . I had the same problem in my truck. It is the connection at the driver side seat belt. It still happens the odd time in my truck if I adjust my seat all the way forward and then back. It is just a bad connection at the wiring harness that hooks up to the seatbelt. Beleive it or not, …I was told the air bag deployment is based on the seatbelt, so that is why that harness is related to your problem Or at least in my case anyway.. Answer . \nI have a 200 Ranger. The airbag light, on the dash, was on when I bought it, used. I was able to find the answer on the Ranger forum. Here it is. If the light is out for the switch to disable the right aribag (under the center of the dash) it causes the complete airbag system to not work. I went to radio shack and bought a bulb and soldered it in place of the other bulb and everything works fine. The Radio Shack number is 272-1099 . They come in a pack of three, red, green, and white. I used the white one. Think the cost was $1.50 or there about. If you take it in to a garage it may cost you $150 or more. They will change the whole assembly. (MORE)
Ford paint codes are almost always in the driver side door jamb orthe door edge. The color codes are two digits and consist ofnumbers and/or letters.
Answer . Turn key to run position. Below steering column is hole directly below ignition. Insert small screw driver and press putton with it. Pull put in ignition.
Answer . \nevidentally this vehicle has been wrecked. Code 19 means "crash data memory full." This code cannot be erased, the restraints control module has to be replaced.
Answer . \nThe restraints control module(RCM) is located under the center of the dash, bolted to the tunnel.
Symptoms You will more than likely not notice any drivability problems, although there may be symptoms such as a lack of power, detonation (spark knock), and/or a hesitation/surge on acceleration. Causes A code P0171 may mean that one or more of the following has happened: . The MAF (Mass Air F…low) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters may cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry. . There could be a vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor. Possible Solutions Possible solutions include: . In the vast majority of cases, simply cleaning the MAF sensor does the trick. Consult your service manual for it's location if you need help. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or brake cleaner . Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling . Inspect all vacuum and PCV hoses, replace if necessary . Check for a dirty fuel filter and proper fuel pressure I had the same error codes. Found out that I had a cracked head. Remove radiator cap start engine. Check for bubbles in radiator. (MORE)
For a 2001 V6 Ford Escape XLT what needs to be fixed when trouble codes P1151 and P1131 appear and are these parts under warranty?
\n. \nMy 2001 Mazda Tribute failed inspection for codes p1131 & p1151 - is this an expensive repair? I'm not working now and was stopped by local area police tonight and just need an approx. of the cost to repair for re-inspection, TIA!
The airbag code 52 on a 96 Ford Windstar often means nothing morethan that there is a loose connection in the electrical system. Thecode can be reset by disconnecting the battery for about 10minutes, then reconnecting it. If that doesn't work, the code mayalso be indicating that the airbag itself is… not getting power andrequires servicing. (MORE)
Under the seats are sensors that detect if a person (or anything over 10 pounds or something like that) is sitting there. If the contacts in the sensor are dirty, it will act all wierd. Having the contacts cleaned at a dealer will cost about a hundred bucks or so...ridiculous. For me, the problem ju…st kinda went away, so i got lucky. (MORE)
Answer . Look in the removable housing at the engine end of the upper radiator hose
It is a loose connection under the drivers seat toward the back of the seat. Disconnect it, make sure it is clean and reconnect. That should solve the problem. Hey! This worked for my '99 Ford E250 van too! Thanks! No, sorry. It means get ready to let her off at the next corner. Mike McMac
Answer . Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P1443 indicates a failure in the EVAP canister purge valve circuit. The Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) Canister Purge (CP) valve controls the flow of vapors from the fuel vapor storage canister to the intake manifold during various engine operating modes. It m…ay need nothing more than a good cleaning, vacuum hose connected or that is leaking, or may need more. I suggest you seek out the services of a good mechanic. Do not just throw parts at this. The code does not mean that any part needs replacing. It just means the EVAP system is being effected. (MORE)

On a 2001 Ford Explorer the airbag control module is located behind the passenger side kick panel (located to the right of the passengers right foot if seated in the vehicle).
I noticed that question has already been correctly answered by Jrc405 on page 5. of the Ford Ranger XL Q & A
The on/off switch, located on the lower side of the dash, below the radio, is for the passenger side only.
Yes , the 2001 Ford Escort Owner Guide shows that it has the Air Bag Supplemental Restraint System ( SRS ) and that there are air bags for the driver and front passenger
The Airbag Code 36 for a 2001 Ford Taurus is the airbag code forthe Driver Side, Side Airbag. This means that there is either afaulty connection, and wires may need to be cleaned, or that thedriver side, side airbag needs to be replaced.
On the OBD-II DTC website, they stated that the code is "Ignition Diagnostic Monitor Pulsewidth Not Defined." More research will be needed to clarify what exactly this means.
Can't find " 47 " on my list but air bag code " 74 " is ( Intermittent or Repaired. Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Low Resistance or Shorted )
First and most importantly you must unhook the battery this is all I know on this subject, otherwise it is generally recommended that a dealer works on the air bag system.
Airbag code 46 on a 2002 Ford Ranger means the electrical resistance of the seatbelt pretensioner in the driver's seat is out-of-range. This is a common problem when the wires in the driver's seat wiring harness get jostled, dirtied or damaged, and there may not actually be anything wrong with the p…retensioner itself. With the engine off and key out of the ignition, try disconnecting the wiring connector under the rear of the driver's seat, inspect/repair the wires if damaged, clean the contacts and apply some dielectric grease, then reconnect it and restart the vehicle to check for the flashing airbag light again. This solves the problem about 90% of the time. If the airbag warning light persists, then your pretensioner is probably faulty and should actually be replaced. (MORE)
The sensors that determine if the seat is occupied (and thus arm the airbag) .... are located within the seats themselves.
P0300 means random misfire detected which probably has to do with the spark plugs or the plug wires
If your vehicle is 1995 or later, you will need a scanner tool to pull the trouble codes. AutoZone and similar auto parts stores offer free scans. If your vehicle is 1994 or older, you can manually pull the trouble codes. Check out a repair manual (Hayne's or Chilton's) at your local library - chapt…er 6 has all the details on how to do it; also what each code means and how to trouble shoot. (MORE)
Look behind the seat (not sure if driver's side or passenger side on your model). The jack will be contained within a removable cover/panel.
You find problem and fix it . then the airbag light will go off.Airbag system checks itself and if no problem is found ,light will stay off.I just fixed a 42 on mine .bad connection.There is no reset on airbag monitor system.
P0171 is System Too Lean (Bank 1), which means that the oxygen sensor detected an excessively lean air fuel mixture.
You would have to take it to a Ford dealership so they could diagnose why the airbag light is on. It is not something that you would want to do yourself.
While it depends on the engine size, generally a 2001 and 2000 ford ranger will have interchangeable parts as far as interior, transmission and attachable engine parts. The features and special package parts will vary between models of the same year as well as different years so those "in general" w…on't be interchangeable. (MORE)
intake manifold runner stuck open, bank 1. check the vac. line that runs into the bottom of it. should be under the intake by the fire wall Joel Bones Wilcox's answer... +++++++++++++++++++++++++ Okay everyone, I've been getting a code P2004 for a few months now. I drive a 2003 Ford… Ranger 2.3 liter. Every time I erase the code it comes back within a quarter mile of driving. The part is called the Intake Manifold Runner Control... (IMRC) I looked everywhere on the internet to show exactly where this part was located to no avail... I drove to my local dealership and they pointed it out to me right away along with the vacuum lines that just fell off the module... The module is made of metal and plastic with one (1) electrical connectors on the bottom and on the back and two (2) vacuum lines connected by a plastic connector on the front of the module connected to the IMRC by crimped metal tabs on the metal housing of the module... The metal component of the IMRC has rusted considerably and the plastic housing that the vacuum lines connect to were crimped to the metal housing. So, when the metal housing rusted away the crimped metal holding the plastic part that the vacuum lines connect to failed and fell off. Below is an actual photo of the rusted part and the vacuum lines that fell off. The metal crimped areas are circled in red... Copy the links to the following images and paste them into your browser's address bar. (Since I cannot upload the images here...) http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/C360_2011-05-04 17-58-55-b.jpg So, I'm posting these images to hopefully help others. I've circled the part in red in the images below. Cost was 127.00 + 8.58 in taxes Total 135.58 Should only take a whole 5 to 10 minutes to replace. Copy the links to the following images and paste them into your browser's address bar. (Since I cannot upload the images here...) http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/scan0001-a.jpg http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/scan0002.jpg Hopefully this post helps someone... The images above will stay for as long as I own my website where they are located... (Since I cannot upload the images here...) +++++++++++++++++++++++++ Here is an updated image after I replaced the IMRC. Took me all but 5 minutes to do this. http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/C360_2011-05-06 11-11-55.jpg AND upon further inspection of the old part and the new part, the plastic piece where the vacuum hoses were attached was NOT held on by crimped metal tabs. The crimped metal tabs were holding on the metal end which held the plastic piece in place. The plastic piece that the vacuum hoses were attached to was broke at the top and bottom. (The only places it could break.) Very bad design in my opinion. In my opinion the cause for the plastic piece to fail was because of the rust. The rust expanded and caused the plastic to fail and break from stress. Here is two images of the old rusted, broken IMRC after removal. You can clearly see in the images below where the plastic failed and broke. Circled in red. http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/C360_2011-05-06 11-28-50.jpg You can also see how the rust built up and expanded and obviously caused the part to fail. http://www.evil-incarnate.com/images/C360_2011-05-06 11-29-12.jpg This was one of the easiest fixes I have ever had to do on this truck. Here is how I did it. 1. Disconnected the negative cable from the battery. + - 8mm bolt on my 2003 Ford Ranger - Losen slightly, twist and pull the negative cable off. 2. Removed the 8mm bolt from the IMRC. + - The bolt was slightly rusted but I was easily able to - force the 8mm socket on and remove the bolt from the plastic - intake manifold. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the old IMRC. + - Gently so as to not break the tab off the electrical - connector, pull the tab outward with your fingernail or - a small screwdriver and pull gently on the plug not - the wires. 4. Unplugged the vacuum hoses from the plastic on the IMRC. + - Gently twist and pull the vacuum hoses off the IMRC one - by one. Pull the front one off first then the lower. - It is very important to remember which hose is which. - Thoroughly inspect the vacuum hoses for cracks and breaks. I reversed this procedure to install the new IMRC. Too easy... Here is what some of the dealerships said when I called and asked them for an estimate of how much it would cost to have my IMRC put on my truck. Nothing else just labor on installing the IMRC. I was specific. One dealership in Kent, Ohio named Klaben Ford told me on the phone about 1 hour labor, approx. $120 USD Another dealership in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio named Spitzer Ford told me 2.8 hours labor, approx. $240 USD. They said they would have to remove the plenum/manifold to replace the IMRC. Then they said they would have to re-program the computer as well. He said he does it all the time and has done many... LOL I've never done this before and I did it in my driveway in 5 minutes. Didn't have to remove the plenum. Didn't have to re-program the computer. The check engine light went out as soon as I started the truck. Truck runs like new now. Smooth. Beautiful. Another dealership in Tallmadge, Ohio named Park Ford told me 1.5 to 2 hours labor, approx. $146. A few points to remember... 1. I'm not an ASE certified mechanic... 2. I don't have a big shop or all the expensive tools like the mechanics at the dealerships. 3. I don't have a book telling me how to do the job. 4. I don't work on vehicles for a living. 5. I don't claim to be an expert or a professional auto mechanic 6. I have cheap Craftsman tools, not MAC or SNAP ON. Just because these so called experts have a uniform with their names embroidered on them and buy expensive tools, doesn't mean they are truthful, professionals who just want to help you. They are, in actuality, ASE certified con artists. 90% of the time they will make you believe you need more work than you actually need and that the job will take a lot longer than it actually should. Don't get me wrong, just because you learned something on the internet doesn't mean you're an expert and it doesn't mean the mechanic doesn't know what they're talking about. However, just because the shop foreman tells you something doesn't mean he is telling you the truth either. They're out to make money and that is the prime mover of their struggle, the root of all evil. MONEY. Remember that... Do your homework. Call around. Get estimates. Talk to the mechanics. Read a book. Educate yourself, it won't hurt... (MORE)
My 1991 Ford Ranger XLT does not have any airbags. Well... once I gave my boss a ride, but that's a different story.
You need an OBDII scanning tool to obtain the codes. The OBDII connection is located on the under side of the dash. near the steering column. You could also take your vehicle to AutoZone or similar auto parts stores that offer free scans.
Cylinder #4 misfire. The cause is usually in the secondary circuit. (You can often smell the catalytic converter trying to process the unburned fuel. If so, that confirms your problem's electrical, not in your fuel system.) In earlier models, typical cause is high-resistance (bad, internally broken)… spark plug wire. In later models, typical cause is a bad coil (coil on plug--COP) for engines so equipped. (MORE)

I was looking at the 2005 Ford Ranger Owner Guide ( for North America ) and it does not show anything about having side curtain airbags ( so the answer is no )
The passenger side airbag has been available in Ford Rangers as an option since 1996. So it's a possibility.
Yes , a 2002 Ford Ranger has air bags for the driver and front passenger ( Supplemental Restraint System , SRS )
The light is telling you that something in the airbag circuit or sensor is not getting a signal. The air bag may or may not operate properly in a crash. It probably is not in any danger of deploying but you should still have it checked out at your earliest opportunity.
Fuse ( # 17 ) is a 20 amp fuse for the cigarette lighter and Data Link Connector on a 2001 Ford Ranger if there is no power
A misfire has been detected in the #6 engine cylinder On a Ford Expedition ( 4.6 and 5.4 ) The engine cylinder locations are numbered : firewall 4 - 8 3 - 7 2 - 6 1 - 5 front of vehicle
Airbag code 19 indicates that the RCM has detected a circuitproblem with the driver's side airbag circuit. That might mean aconnector or a clock spring fault or the airbag or RCM has failedelectrically. It is STRONGLY recommend to leave airbag systemrepairs to someone with the proper training and eq…uipment as it canbe hazadrous to your health to try and repair it youself. (MORE)
A 1996 Ford Ranger could be equipped with a passenger side airbag ( SRS ) * so maybe yes and maybe no * All the 1996 Ford Ranger models have a drivers side airbag
