Air Bag Diagnostic Codes
1989-1991 On the '89-91 systems, you simply count the flashes from the Airbag lamp to get the fault code.
Code Component Fault/Description
2 All Primary Crash Sensors Disconnected.
3 Air Bag Deployment Circuit - Low Battery Voltage or Low Backup Power Supply Voltage
4 Safing Sensor - Diagnostic Circuit Open or Low Primary Crash Sensor Resistance
5 Air Bag Circuit or Crash Sensor Circuit - Shorted to Ground
6 Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - Open or High Resistance
7 Passenger-Side Air Bag Circuit - Open or High Resistance
8 Primary Crash Sensor - Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly
9 Primary Crash Sensor Circuit - Open or High Resistance
10 Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse - Open Due to Intermittent Short to Ground
1992- In the 1992 model year the systems changed. 1992 System 2 was used in the Taurus/Sable, Town Car (built after 11/5/91), and Continental. To obtain the code on this system, count two sets of flashes and interpret it as a 2-digit code (e.g., flash-flash pause flash-flash-flash = 23)
Code Component Fault/Description 12 Low Battery Voltage 13 Air Bag Circuit - Shorted to Ground 14 Primary Crash Sensor - Shorted to Ground 21 Safing Sensor - Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly 22 Safing Sensor Output Circuit - Shorted to Battery Voltage 23 Safing Sensor Input Feed/Return Circuit - Open 24 Safing Sensor Output Feed/Return Circuit - Open 32 Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - High Resistance or Open 33 Passenger-Side Air Bag Circuit - High Resistance or Open 34 Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - Low Resistance or Shorted 35 Passenger-Side Air Bag Circuit - Low Resistance or Shorted 41 Primary Crash Sensor #1 Feed/Return Circuit - Open 42 Primary Crash Sensor #2 Feed/Return Circuit - Open 44 Primary Crash Sensor #1 - Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly 45 Primary Crash Sensor #2 - Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly 51 Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse - Open Due to Intermittent Short to Ground 52 Backup Power Supply - Voltage Boost Fault 53 Primary Crash Sensor Circuits - Resistance to Ground, or Internal Diagnostic Monitor Fault Rapid Continuous Flashing of AIR BAG Readiness Lamp - All Primary Crash Sensors Disconnected
If you plan to work on your airbag system, exercise extreme caution. Personal injury may result if you accidently deploy an air bag. The airbag system is live all of the time - it is not switched on and off by the key. There are also backup power supplies. The 1989 - 91 system will discharge in about 20 minutes after the battery is disconnected. The service manual says that it must be disconnected to safely work on the vehicle. The 1992+ system will discharge in about one minute after disconnecting the battery.
Never attach a self-powered test light to any part of an airbag system. If you want to work on the system, acquire and review a manual that covers servicing of the system. Examples are the Air Bag System Diagnosis training manual from Ford, as well as the shop manuals from Helm.
