Hey today was checking fuses but dad left the keys turned onto accessories while he started pulling some out. put the 10amp back in for the airbag and now it blinks on and off. i have disconnected the battery and still no difference anyone know maybe why its blinking?

Oh and if anyone wants to know..if you dont have the 10amp fuse put in just under the dash near the drivers door, your friggin car wont start and s**t will go hay wire...found that out today!...Radio didnt turn on, car didnt start, and now since everythings running the air bag wont stop blinking! :roll:

it actually does tell you.... it flashes a code....

12 = low battery voltage
13 = air bag circuit shorted to ground
14 = crash sensor shorted to ground
22 = safing sensor output circuit shorted to battery voltage
23 = memory clear circuit failure
24 = system disarm failure
32 = driver airbag circuit high resistance or open circuit
33 = pass air bag or resistor (where no pab fitted) high resistance or open circuit
34 = driver airbag circuit low resistance or shorted
35 = pab or resistor (where no pab fitted) circuit low resistance or shorted
41 = dash crash sensor circuit open
42 = front crash sensor circuit open
44 = dash crash sensor not mounted to vehicle properly
45 = front crash sensor not mounted to vehicle properly
52 = intermittent or repaired low battery voltage
53 = intermittent or repaires air bag circuit shorted to ground or crash sensor resister to ground
54 = intermittent or repaired crash sensor circuit shorted to ground

^^^^ Go to the Airbag doco, read it, and reset the system.

I've added this to the Airbag sticky.

turn ign on til code 52 is finished flashing, and earth out pin 4 (top row 4th pin in)
on diagnostic plug.
then it should clear if everything is ok
