I have a '93 with a blinking airbag light. I have been told by a couple of repair places that the only way to fix it is to take apart the entire dash on the car which would be very very expensive. Mine has been blinking for three years.
Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional.
Reset the light. Turn everything off. Turn the key on and off when the light just goes off. Keep doing this several times, the light will reset
If it's a driver's side air bag it could be a broken clock spring under the horn pad. The light is blinking it doesn't say which side. How would you know.
A problem with the system and depending on what type of problem depends on wether or not they wiil function properly
The airbag light would have nothing to do with emissions. If they are doing a safety inspection, it would fail.
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.
The airbag light stays on when the computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.
There is not much chance that your airbag would malfunction and just deploy, but if the airbag light is on there is a 100% chance that it will not operate properly in the event of an accident. You need to have the car inspected at a dealer or certified repair shop if the airbag light is on and remains on.
The airbag light stays on when the airbag computer detects a malfunction and sets a code. You need to have the system checked for codes to know possible causes.
I would look at the REAR signal light on the same side of the car. It is probably not blinking at all and the bulb needs to be replaced.
There are pages of codes for the airbag system. You need to have it checked for codes by a qualified mechanic as airbag systems are not a do it yourself system.
if your airbag light is on it tells that something is wrong with the module, sensors, or clock spring..in order to find out what is the problem you would have to pay for the diagnostic, usually they charge about 70$. After they replaced they have to reset the airbag light. I would've buy one of those airbag reset tools online for about 50-100$ and do it myself saving hundreds.
Because of an electric fault
A blinking Check Engine light indicates a serious problem with the emissions system. Have this repaired immediately.
The airbag computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes to know possible causes.
The airbag light is on because there is a problem with your airbag system. There isn't any way to "reset" an airbag light without first properly repairing the system. Once that is done, you would need a scan tool that is capable of communicating with the computer in your car, telling it the repair has been made. Only then will the light be turned off.
If the cause of the code was fixed the light would have gone off on its own.
The light is on because there is a fault in the system. It would be best to have the professionals take a look at it.
The light come on when the system detects a problem and sets a trouble code. You should have it diagnosed by a trained technician. The airbag system is not for do it yourselfers. The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system.
There is a problem with the safety restraint system, it could be an airbag malfunction and unfortunately the dealer is the only one really qualified to service it.
replace airbag sensors, or fix the damage around them (front end damage i would assume)
The S light blinking is a good thing as that means you have an electrical problem rather than a mechanical problem. Take the car to a professional for repair.
