Help Please:s Airbag Light On

4 posts in this topic

i have a focus 2008 1.4 style and i just have change the front seats with a sport ones with no airbag on the seat

i friend of mine just told to fit a resistor of 2.2 ohms and it worked fine for a while but now its on again

when i connected the car on the computer diagnostic it say "passenger airbag circuit resistance to high"

Also only lights up when the weather is warm or when i drive fast and i hit a whole on the road

it doesnt stay on the whole time if the car is not moving every thing its ok

frustrating :@:@:@:@:@:@

Hi have you thought about trying a lower resistor and also if its coming on while driving or hitting a bump then there must be a bad connection , which means the 2.2 ohm is not doing its job properly

Just measure the resistance of the part you have removed and install a resistor of the same value, should do the job.

When your airbag light flashes it is giving you a code i.e 4 flashes followed by 2 flashes = 42

Check this against the code given by the diagnostic, you may have more than one problem.

You can search for ford airbag codes and get the list.

I had huge snags with mine and after all the fault finding I just loosened the bolts securing the front crash sensor half a turn, retightened them to make the earth connection better and hey presto, fixed.

It will be something very simple, just needs a little tenacity to find it.

Good luck :-)
