Default Ford Expedition '98 Air Bag Light on


It should flash a code immeadiately after you turn the
vehicle on. It will be a blink cod ein the form of
...blink..blink........blink..blink (for 22). I bel;eive it
repeats twice.

You should consider joining the Expedition Owner's Group
mailing list. See

You are right: it does flash a code. Right after power on it flashes 3 times
the code 42, and than the airbag light stays steady on.

Did some more investigation over the weekend, and found out that the wire at
one horn was cut... but the other one was left intact. I wonder if by
mistake they cut the wire to the passenger side crush sensor? Anybody knows
where thatone is located so I can do a visual check?

I imagine you are right. Here is a partial list of the
codes:

No Air Bag Indicator Inoperative Indicator Circuit or No
Battery Positive Voltage to Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor
Continuous Air Bag Indicator Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor
Disconnected or Inoperative
12 Low Battery Voltage
13 Air Bag Circuit Shorted to Ground
14 Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Circuit Shorted to
Ground
21 Rear Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Not Mounted to Vehicle
Properly
22 Rear Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Output Circuit Shorted to
Battery Voltage
23 Rear Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Circuit Input Feed/Return
Circuit Open
24 Rear Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Output Feed/Return
Circuit Open
32 Driver Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open
34 Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Low Resistance or Shorted
41 RH Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Feed/Return Circuit
Open
42 LH Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Feed/Return Circuit
Open
44 RH Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Not Mounted to
Vehicle Properly
45 LH Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Not Mounted to
Vehicle Properly
51 Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse Fuse
Blown Due to Intermittent Short to Ground
52 Backup Power Supply Voltage Boost Fault
53 Front Air Bag Sensor and Bracket Circuits Resistance to
Ground or Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Fault
Rapid Continuous Flashing of Air Bag Indicator (No Fault
Code) All Primary Air Bag Sensors Disconnected

Working on the airbags can be dangerous. I'd suggest pulling
the airbag fuse and then looking for a cut wire on the
lefthand side of the truck. If you find one, you may be able
to reconnect it. However, I suggest this is really a job for
the dealer. Lots of liability connected to airbags. I'd
prefer to make sure the dealer / Ford is responsible if it
fails in an accident, or if it goes off at an inappropriate
time.
