Airbag Light

Air bag light flashes several times then stays lit. This started about 2 months ago. OBD codes all clean, anybody got any experience on corrections? Thanks.

Probably knocked the wires off the air bag, very simple fix.

Just another 10 second Mustang, what did you expect ? http://youtube.com/watch?v=BgykaUrmfvM

If the light is flashing, then you have a code in the system. You cant just bring it to Auto zone and ask for a check. Because thats for engine and evap codes only. They cant check air bag codes, because its illegal. You need to bring it to a local garage or a dealership.

Juco... if youre horn doesnt work and youre air bag flashes, im gonna guess youre cruise control is inop as well? Chances are youre clockspring is broken and it needs a new one. You could also very well have a inop horn pad, which is incorporated into the air bag.

What you all need to do is get at least a code, if not a diagnosis.

Horn not working and air bag light flashing generally means a problem with the CLOCK SPRING. Its behind the air bag. I agree with Casper.

You can replace it yourself and see if that fixes it. About $90 ,and you can borrow a steering wheel puller from Advanced Auto. .Save yourself the money from a dealership having to do a potential diagnostic. If it doesnt fix it,put the old one back in then take it in.

Boomer,you cant just "knock the wires" off the airbag. They are plugs that sit away from the airbag assembly.

Uncle Rap.If you decide to do it yourself,I can give you a link that I wrote up on how to do it.

Here it is so everyone can see. In some places ,I may not have used the best choice of words. So if you got any questions,post them here or PM me. Its easy to do,just BE PATIENT.



First put your wheels and steering wheel ,in a straight position .Then disconnect your battery,and allow a few minutes for your airbags to discharge any energy the MAY have in them .There are 2 screws on the side of the steering column .1 on each side under the little rounds tabs that cover them . They are hex head ,so you will need a small socket. Removes those ,and take the airbag off .Be careful not to jolt the airbag,and hold it facing away from you .Its not likely it will go off,but it has happened on rare occasion's before

After that is removed,you will see a couple plugs.The black one is for you cruise control I think. Disconnect and the yellow one . You will see a bolt in the center of the steering wheel. You will need a Torq 50 bit for that . If you dont have one,Sears has some nice sets with different sizes. My advice is get a new bolt before you remove that one.You not supposed to re-use these .The dealership got me a new one. When your ready remove that center bolt.

I used a borrowed wheel puller from Advance Auto for a $20 deposit. Its pretty decent .Before you take the wheel off though make sure its locked ,so its doesnt spin all around ,possibly damaging the new clock spring. Also ,take a permanent marker and make a mark on the center of the hole where the bolt was,and on one the steering wheel. This is a "relation" mark,so you know how to put the wheel back on.
Ill tell you how to use the puller,assuming you get the one from Advanced , They all should be the same though. Make sure your wheels,and sterring wheel are in the straight position.

Ok. Thread the large bolt through the center of the puller piece (the bar looking thing with the hole in the middle ,and slots on each side). You will have to play with it a bit ,to get the right amount of threading. In the kit is a round tip that they tell you to put onto the big center bolt. I found that this tip actually made it impossible to pull the wheel. Because its bigger than the center hole .So dont use it . Just use the tip of the big bolt itself.

You will notice on the bracket in the center of the wheel,that there are 2 holes that have threads in them .Theres in one kinda to the top right ,and one to the left if I remember correct. Select the 2 correct screws from the puller kit,and screw 1 in first by hand tightening. .Just one .Then take the center bolt ,and puller bar,and slide in onto the screw you screwed in. Then take the other screw ,and thread it though the puller bar,and into the other wheel hole.

You will need a socket to tighten the big center bolt ,I dont remember what size .But I think its on a 3/4 socket wrench .So find the right size. You will notice that the puller kit is probaly loose,so you need to tighten the big center bolt into the hole into the center of the wheel where the Torq bolt was that you removed. Keep tightening until the big center bolt is tight onto the center hole ,and keep tightening until the wheel starts to move.

The object is to tighten the big center bolt DOWN into the center wheel hole,while the 2 screws pull UP on the wheel. It may seems hard at first,but keep doing it and wiggle the wheel some. Eventually it will pull off.

So with the wheel removed, ,you will need to remove the top and bottom column covers. The bottom cover has about 4 phillips head screws connecting it to the top cover. Just take these off,and be careful not to break the cheap plastic removing them . You have to take these off so you can get to the back of the clock spring and so you can remove the ignition lock.

After the cover are removed,trace the wires from the clock spring to underneath the dash and disconnect them .Its kinda a PITA . Then you will need to remove the ignition lock. Put the key in and turn it to the RUN position. At the bottom of the ignition lock,you will see a small hole with a ball in it .Use a sharp/strong object to push up on the ball,and pull the ignition lock out at the same time.

Next,unplug the little clip that is in the hole where the ignition lock was. Its part of the clock spring actually.

There are 3 tabs on the back of the clock spring holding it in place. Unclip those ,and the clock spring will come off with some pulling.. Be sure all your wires from the clock spring are undone and pulled from under the dash before trying to pull it out. Then put the new one on .Its just the reverse of the removal .Just dont let your wheel spin around a lot or you can damage the clock spring.

Well,I think that just about covers it . If you get stumped or have a question PM me ,or post it here.

Be sure to test everything before you put your covers back on. Just incase its not your clock spring.

And also,connect your positive battery cable first when you reconnect it. Its for the airbag .
