Do you mean the list of DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) read out of the car using a scantool?

No. Airbag warning light flashing code 22, had to replace airbag fuse recently as battery was shot and tripped fuse. Guess fault 22 is telling me that fuse had been replaced and now just needs resetting, as i had to do in my old EF. Not sure on how to reset. Any help appreciated.

LFC 22 is side air bag fault.

Having worked on these cars alot, the most common thing that causes this is the wiring connection at the seats. Have a look at this connection, and wiggle the wires around etc, and you should find on a key cycle it will go away.
There was a ford fix for this that involved a special clip and a cable tie etc.

22 is drivers side
23 is passenger side

you may need to dc the battery for one minute also to clear the code.

give this a try, and if not, there was also a rework which added an extra earth to the side airbag circuit.
PM me if u need any more help and ill see what i can do

Guess what? A little play of the wires under the drivers seat and presto - the problems fixed.

Thanks to all involved for your help!
