How do you clear the flashing airbag light on the BA Fairlane - 2003 model. Light flashes three times when starting up, then stops for a bit, then flashes three times again.

yes
a flashing air bag light indicates a fault in the airbag system, which means it may (in very rare circumstances) go off uninvited. The entire airbag system is electronically disabled but if its on because of a short etc it could be nasty...
take the car to a ford dealer and get them to diagnose it for u. Shouldnt take them more then an hour to diagnose...
