Airbag Light Not Working (Fault Codes)
Posted 14 March 2013 - 04:28 PM
An I right in saying that the spiral wiring is in fact the clock spring immediately behind the steering wheel? And, is there in fact, a removable bulb in the cluster that may be blown or have been removed. Some clusters now have LEDs in. Just looking for a little info before I go in there.

Just a small note for when you refit the clock spring, maybe you already know but worth mentioning anyhow. Before you refit it, turn the spring all the way to the left, then turn it all the way to the right, counting the turns as you go. Divide this by two, then count back by that number of turns to get the clock spring centralised. I think the one on my Focus was two and a half turns to centre, but do check this.
If you don't do this, you will not be able to turn the steering wheel fully/at all one way or the other. And you don't want to find this out at speed, on a bend.

if you turn ignition on, air bag light should flash a code...for eg...
code 19 is flash...pause....flash x9
19 is drivers air bag
21 is passenger air bag
trouble is, your other code B1870, will cause the light to flash continously, so will have to repair this first...once done, you can then check flashes again to tell you which side air bag is causing problem..
think that makes sense

if so, let us know as those 2 numbers will reveal location/type of fault, can look it up for you.
