Lt, check this forum at www.ranger-forums.com for airbag solutions.There is a picture link for how to take the instrument cluster out there.I think you can solder in another airbag light but it sounds more like the connector pins under the seat.

I have a 1997 ford ranger.The battery went bad so I replaced it.When I started it back up I have an airbag light that blinks 5 times goes out then blinks 2 more times. It will do this several times then just stay on.Does anyone what is causing this. I thought about just removing my battery cable and Disconnecting the air bag wire in the steering wheel.

Hi there I had a 1997 ranger for 5 years and passed it on to my brother. when I owned it the 1st year my airbag light was blinking constantly the sensor is bad. Option 1 is to disconnect the batter and take the grill off and clean the sensor with a wire brush or brillo pad. then put back in and rehook up batteries if this isn't the problem need a new sensor. about $200 ...

Thank you for the tip about the yellow wire bundle under the driver's seat. I have a 2000 Ford and unplgging the wire and replugging it back in turned the air bag light off. This blog saved me $916! THANKS.

2002 Ford Ranger Sport, 4 litre, 6 cylinder, 5 speed standard

I had the airbag idiot-light flashing and thanks to this page I fixed 'er.

I pushed the driver's seat all the way forward, reached under the back of the driver's seat, unclipped the wire-harness from the seat, pushed the tab, pulled the plug apart, scraped the 4 pins with a tiny screw driver (sure not to short any pins just in case), plugged it back in and the air bag light worked properly... ahh nice easy free fix.

Thanks Joe, Jeff & Pumpkinescobar

p.s. my harness is black not yellow... and my connector is grey.

My Brand New 2010 Ford Ranger sport 2x4 passenger side air bag light indicating it is turned off every time my Mrs gets into the truck. The dealer says she is too light , she is 5'8" 97 lbs she is not a child. The service manager refused to test, look at or even consider the vehicle . He just kept repeating ( quote ; There is nothing wrong with the truck ) without even looking at it. By reading the previous posts i can see this has been an issue with Ford that they just dont want to address. The dealership is Fraser Ford in Oshawa Ont. Beware as they will not honour thier customer support policy.

I have a 96 F150, the airbag light flashes 4 times then 5 times. I tried unplugging and cleaning the 2 connectors under the drivers side seat with no change. This vehicle has been hit in the front end before I owned it. I assume this is code 45 and can't find anyone with a similar code. Any ideas?

Ford Ranger 02 xlt. Had service work done on engine. Many times computer connection pulled out for test from under dash. Also trasmission overhauld. When truck repaired and I picked up same the air bag light was on and #2 fuse blown. New fuse and when shifting in drive the fuse blew every time. Trouble located in shift arm wireing harness. Same was shorting out and blowing #2 fuse every time. Replaced arm and wireing harness. Solved the problem. There was no problem with other things connected to #2 fuse. Process of elimination.

Ford Escape 2002 XLS 4X4 Air Bag Light Blinks 4, 6.

I took it to the shop and the guy with his $20, 000 Snap-on scanner showed me the code of 1877. He advised to replace the driver's seat belt pre-tensioner first, then the SCM if the code persisted. $185 an hour for idiots seems the going rate these days as long as they have a fancy scanner they don't understand. The supervisor and I reached an agreement. They agreed not to charge me, if I agreed never to come back. Such a deal!

Tried the plug under the seat on my 2001 ford ranger the air bag light went out right away and so far has stayed out(passenger side and drivers side plugs). going to try putting a zip tie around the plugs to see if that will stop any more trouble in the future, will have to pull the zip ties real tight to make them hold good.

How do I correct a airbag 41 error code on a 93 ford probe GT

I know what the code means but how do i fix it

I have been through several codes with the airbag system and need some help to get this thing fixed. I first had a code 12 so I replaced the fuse under the hood. Then I was showing code 52. I used the jumper wire on the airbag diagnostic connector and got that code cleared. Now I am getting a code 53(53: PRIMARY CRASH SENSOR CIRCUITS RESISTANCE TO GROUND OR AIR BAG DIAGNOSTIC MONITOR FAULT). What does this code mean and how do I fix it.

I might have solved this problem.So far the 10 amp fuse has not blown yet.It has been about 3 days.The fuse used to blow about every 2 or 3 weeks.Recently it would blow if I moved the shift lever just a few times.I disconnected the overdrive on/off switch under the dash so the overdrive cannot be turned off now.I think the culprit was the two wires coming out of the overdrive switch through the shift lever down the steering column which were probably touching each other and shorting the circuit.Now the overdrive switch can't be turned off but I never drove the truck anyway with the overdrive off.The overdrive stays on so there is no downside I can see.If your airbag light comes on and the blower motor quits too this might be the solution.To do a complete fix the wires would have to be reworked.I first replaced the blower motor relay switch and the blower motor too but the 10 amp fuse was still blowing.This would be an expensive fix at the dealer I bet.

I can't get the connectors apart--afraid to pull too hard because I can see the inner wires and really don't want to tear it up! Suggestions?
