Hey, got a dual airbag 5 litre EL Fairmont Ghia, and the AirBag light stays on 100% of the time, tried clearing the codes but to no avail, airbag light doesnt even breifly turn off during that procedure, fuse is good, airbag module plugged in, short of ripping the globe out and disconnecting the airbag module, what can I do?

Cheers, Gab

You might have a faulty sensor. There is a sensor behind the front bumper bar

Keep trying with clearing the code memory, took me about 7-10 goes at it before mine decided to behave.

Well the first problem I have diagnosed, the REV LPS fuse was blown and keeps blowing, if I unplug the wiring going to the inhibitor switch, it doesnt blow.
