The car is an AUII ute.I accidentally sold the airbag while I had the car in pieces.
I got another wreck that wasnt smashed to get an airbag as I need to do a VIV and the airbag light stays on while I drive.I was thinking of taking the globe out,or is there an easy way to fix this solution.
Hope someone can help out.

an easy way to fix the solution would be as you suggested, take the globe out. not to sure if the airbag will still work though

The airbag light goes on when you turn the ignition,then it goes off when you start it,but then comes back on.It doesnt beep,just flashes.

try disconnecting the battery for half an hour or so, if that doesnt work you'll have to get the code cleared by ford, or if theres something wrong with the airbag you will need to get another one.

[quote][/quote]Giving you an update on what has happened.
A mechanic said the airbag was not faulty,in fact the passenger side has no airbag,thats why the airbag light was flashing.
Did the easy thing,replaced the whole dash which has passenger airbag and all works fine now.
Thanks again everyone.
