Hi guys, my girlfriends sister bought a 1999 Ford KA yesterday, however i noticed that the air bag light comes on in the dash intermittently and sometimes stays on for a while. Anyone know how/ if it's possible to turn this warning light off? I suppose it will have to go to ford, but just wondering what you folks reckon.

Hey did anyone know also, these are made in Poland?! I always thought they were Jap.

Euro version made in Poland, USA version made in Brazil. Quite a neat wee car when ya get in it.

Sounds like the "clockspring" is stuffed......wiring for the contacts for the airbag.

nother fun little fact is that the little engine in them is very heavily based on the 1.3-1.6 "kent" engines in escorts and cortina's.
