Anyone able to share with me what fault code 17 (i.e. one flash, pause, seven flashes) is for? When I jumped in the car this morning the red airbag fault light on the dash illuminated. Searching has found information about most other fault codes, but nothing on 17.

While I know it's for EF/EL's, I tried the Tech Doc < ford-technical-document-active-diagnostics---airbags-d51 > but the Ask Johnny button doesn't work...

17 = unexpected feature present - is listed for this LFC (Lamp Flash Code)
covers various faults -poor connection/moisture causing voltage to track/fault in switching -its telling you it seen something it didn't like -
check connections to drivers side seat belt pretensioner and switch
