My aim is to fix it properly. I replaced the dummy resistor which was open circuit with a 2.2 ohm as recommended but I now cant clear the error code. Does this mean the fault still exists? When the error code was 73 I still couldn't fix it by earthing pin 4 of row 1 but Ford were able to rest it for$200. Should I get Ford to reset it again? Do they have a magic reset?

most automatic places can scan and remove codes,may be free or a few dollars,my guy does it with each service and we talk about any codes-picked up 1 thermo fan wasnt working,,i didnt know about.

Fix it properly - then you have peace of mind that it might save you injury in a collision.
Read the Airbag sticky in the interior forum.
To reset codes, all the faults need to be fixed first.
The system should beep if there's no bulb or it's blown - so don't waste your time pulling the cluster to do this.


It doesn't beep if you pull out the bulb and replace the fuse there is no way of knowing

Actually I tested both my cars when I had the instrument clusters out a while ago, and yes, they both beeped the 5 times funnily enough.

I'm currently having some issues with with my airbag light. It has been giving me code 12 when starting up the car. Replacing the fuse only causes it to blow again and again. Battery is about 2 months old. After tinkering around for some time, now when I turn the ignition on I am getting a series of 5 beeps from the fuse box area. . Where do I start?

Have you read the tech doc on the SRS? If not, here is the link.
documents.php?d=3
I had to keep clearing various codes off my EF for about a week when I first got her, so it may be a case of having to clear them one at a time.


Thanks that info, was very helpful and I was able to reset the airbag light from the information given on the link your provided. documents.php?d=3
