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.
Airbag light is on the bottom right hand corner of the instrument cluster. To roll down the window you have to have the key in the on position, the accesories position does not work.
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.
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.
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
I had the same problem. I had to smack the steering wheel to get the airbag light to go out. Then the heater and windows would work. Eventually, the car would start with my foot on the brake, but would stop when I took my foot off. When I had the ignition switch replaced, everything worked again.
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.
The airbag computer has detected a malfunction. You need to have the system checked for codes to know possible causes.
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)
it means it needs service check owners manual
it could be the clock spring in the stering wheel colum
The flashing means that you have an airbag code. This means that there is a problem with your airbag, and your vehicles computer is trying to tell you to take it to the dealership to be fixed. Go see your nearest dealership soon. Do not worry, the airbag won't just go off randomly if their is a problem, the light is probably indicating that the airbag will not work if you get in an accident. A dealership will be able to interpret this code and tell you what is wrong.
What you need to do is take it to another garage that does diagnostics and ask the to read the airbag system if it comes up with airbag pre-tensioner they need to tighten it up under the seat and it should solve it if it comes up with that.
I would unplug the battery. This will reset your clock, etc., but it should turn the light off.
I had the same problem and isolated it to the ignition switch. My wife had way too many things on her keyring and the weight just wore out the switch. Jiggling the key would usually get everything working for awhile.
Problem with the SRS. Not a DIY repair. Take it to a professional.
The computer has detected a fault in the airbag circuit.
