Air Bag light

Postby Midshift - December 5th, 2015, 11:03 pm

Went into a store tonight, came back out and AB light was on..

I did previously run car through a car wash, so I'm unsure that had an effect after letting it sit for 10 mins as I went into the store..

Anybody know if anything other than impact would trigger that? With the cold weather, it will probably be off when I head to work at 0600 tomorrow. :shrug:

According to your owners manual...

Seating and Safety Restraints

The front passenger sensing system may detect small or medium objects
placed on the seat cushion. For most objects that are in the front
passenger seat, the passenger airbag will be disabled. Even though the passenger airbag is disabled, the pass airbag off light may or may not be illuminated according to the table below.

Objects.....Pass Airbag Off Indicator Light.....Passenger Airbag

Empty seat ..............unlit..................................Disabled

Small (i.e. 3 ring
binder, small purse,
bottled water)...........unlit..................................Disabled

Medium (i.e. heavy
briefcase, fully packed
luggage)....................lit..................................Disabled

Empty seat, Small or
medium object with
safety belt buckled.......lit..................................Disabled

In case there is a problem with the
passenger sensing system, the
airbag readiness light in the
instrument cluster will stay lit. DO
NOT attempt to repair or service the system; take your vehicle
immediately to the dealer.

If it is necessary to modify an advanced front airbag system to
accommodate a person with disabilities, contact the Ford Customer
Relationship Center at the phone number shown in the Customer
Assistance section of this Owner's Guide.

I had the airbag warning light on the dash come on at one point. All my research pointed towards the seat belt tensioner. Then I read a quick blurb about the connection under the seats coming lose, especially if you tend to store things under your seat. At the time, I had a small, travel type dumbbell set in a case under the passenger seat. I removed the case and pushed the under-seat connectors together. The warning light went away and stayed away. I hope your issue is as simple as mine was.

Don't know what it was, but the issue solved itself overnight.

Thx for input peeps.

look for code 46 or 45. Common on mine. The light flashes in code when the ignition is turned on. 45 is driver seat connector and 46 is passenger seat connector. The light flashes in a sequence of fast flashes and slow flashes, the first set are the first number and the second set are the second number.

I have experienced the same thing multiple times, turning the car off and restarting it a couple minutes later seems to solve the problem. I think there is a loose connection underneath the seat.
