I had my ignition fuse blow last night so I took the one out of the airbag and put it in that (they are the same 10A) to get me home. Now I have put the fuse back in it it keeps flashing telling me there is a problem. I have had the battery disconnected all day to reset it but I've just connected it up and its still flashing 5 times and then it stays on.
I know there is nothing wrong with it do how do I stop the airbag light coming on?

Cheers

when ever there is a fault stored in the srs system the light will come on even if the fault is not presant. so taking the fues out will store a fault of no power supply.

on the ef el u can bridge two of the pins in the obd socket sorry not sure which ones they are, and it should clear faults or take it to someone with a test reader to clear it for u

Thanks for that fordgt290.
I'm a little more relieved.

Does anyone know which pins to short or another method to clear the fault.

Looking through the airbag diags of the manual, it says in the event of a fault it displays a two digit code ..

Example A fault code 32 is displayed as follows

flash flash flash - two second pause - flash flash
five second pause
flash flash flash - two second pause - flash flash

so you get the idea 3 plus 2

If yours is flashing 5 times then staying on I am a little confused, the book doesn't make any mention of that!

Go check it again, if it is showing a two digit fault code, let me know and I'll see what it means!

Its the dash warning light Happy not a fault code.
Its flashing 5 times then its off for a while then 5 times and off for a while and 5 times and then off for a while and then it stays on all because I took the fuse out :x

I need to clear the any fault codes to stop the dash light annoying me.

that is what the car uses to display the fault code, the air bag indicator in your cluster... dunno what three rotations of 5 flashes means though...

well for an el it only says you need to connect the ford diagnostics tester to your car to clear any stored codes in the eeprom! Says nothing about shorting a couple of pins out so I would be very careful before trying that one!
Here are the EL LFC codes in case they help...

no lamp = Inoperative idicator circuit
continuous lamp = fault code time out
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

Code Clearing
# 1) Switch the Ignition On
# 2) Allow the Code to be Displayed.
# 3) Apply a Short Circuit to the Airbag Memory Clear Pin of the Diagnostic Connector to Ground (See above Picture for further details).
# 4) The Code will be cleared after 5 Beeps have sounded. Repeat the Above untill all the required codes have been Cleared.

Thats what the doco says to do.
Where is ground to short the Airbag Memory Clear Pin to?

I should mention Happy its for the EF XR6 not the EL Fairmont. :D
Cheers

Happy its a 5 flashes and then 2 flashes.
Low battery voltage because I had the battery disconnected all day I guess.

I hope it will fix itself.
