Oh yes, I almost forgot to mention, I tried to clear the Airbag module memory by jumping it to ground as per the technical documents, I realise that it is an EL and it shouldn't work, and rightly so it didnt...

(The only reason I tried was because the diagnostic loom looks identical to the one in the EF GLi which I just jumped and its memory cleared perfectly, which I thought meant that it was the right diagnostic connected to jump)
Anyway, since trying to jump that in the EL, thats when my code 13 error started showing up, so I may have inadvertently just added a more serious error code over the top of whatever is happening now :(

i tried this tonight
before i had code 12 .
found blown tx fuse replaced got code 52 but airbag fuse blew within seconds code 12 replaced said fuse it blew on reds.
i unpluged the first small black plug above the bigger black one attached with a white nylon clip ,it has 2 skinny wires orange/black and grey/white.

Sory to dig up an old thread but have just purchased a nl fairlane as a bit of a project. Have cuurently got a nl as well. If i have ever had air bag probs the light has given the usual cycle of flashes to give the fault code. With the nl however when i turn the ignition on the airbag light starts of dim and gets brighter no flashing whatsoever. Is this normal for el's nl's.

I thought it might have been blowing as part of the airbag safety circuit...
I do have a spare fairmont sitting here that has no airbag errors showing, Also have spare crash sensors if changing them might help...

The thermo fans on the front are wired up weird, I have yet to figure out why..
Hes got a cable running negative straight to the plug on the thermo fans, and another cable that gets positive power from the ISC on top of the throttle body...
So it would turn the thermo fans on while you were driving.. I have no idea :(

Im not sure what else to do to fix the airbag issue now, the clockspring seems to be in good order but i'll swap it for the other fairmont if I get desperate.
So what if I were to change the airbag control module with one that I know is still good?

u may want to fix the thermo wiring cause since the car came out with them it shouldnt need any extra wiring to make them run so return that wiring to stock maybe
