June 28, 2002hey guys my 1997 truck is doing the same thing. The airbag light flashes periodically and it is starting to worry me. Anyone know anything about this. I have never hit anyone or been in an accident in my baby. I would love for some advice besides take it to the dealer where they are going to charge me an arm and a leg! HELP!!!

July 20, 2002My light flashes twice and then 7 times befor it stays on. Any ideas?
July 22, 2002Thanks nitro, fixed my light, everything`s working fine now. No more flashing lights whatsoever...
August 11, 2002if your airbag light comes on at all beside right when you start your truck you should have that checked. if your truck is under warranty it will be fixed for free. if not just to let you know labor at a dealership is $70 an hour plus parts just to let yall know
December 4, 2002My 99 Ranger is also flashing a code of 27, any info on how to solve this? I drove for about 100 miles, before I stopped for gas, when I started it back up the light started to flash this code, 3 times before coming on steady. I've never had any problems before.
December 4, 2002The flashing is an LFC code. I don't see a code of 51 or 5 for a 2000 F150 in the Workshop manual, but the bottom line is, this should be part of the insurance claim. I would go back to your insurer and make an additional claim. I doubt Ford would repair this since the deer probably caused the fault. Regardless, you need to get it to a shop that can read DTC codes. Several auto parts stores in my area offer a free DTC read.
April 12, 2003Hope you have better luck then me. I have a 2002 F-150 4x4, and the airbag light flashes 5-1. I took it to the dealer, he replaced the clockspring..As I drove away, the light came on again. They then ordered a control module. Light stayed off after that for a week or two, but again, now it is flashing 5-1, or 1-5 I cant remember..Been so long now I put a business card over the darn thing.
I have missed 3 days of work, memorized every inch of my dealers waiting room, and still after over 5 appts and many parts replaced, I am back where I was when I went in the first time. Last appt, they said they had to start cutting into the wire harness and bypassing factory wires...I havent made a return appt since. Just dont like the idea of a brand new truck less then a year old, having somene tap and splice the main control units harness..My local dealer has tried, and more power to him, but still cant seem to fix the thing. Its not a all the time thing. Maybe the light comes on 4-5 days in a row, and skips a day or two, but it always comes back. I guess I am glad I have a warranty, because if I didnt, this would be outrageous.
I am at the point now, with business card over the indicator on the dash, to start to write Ford headquarters and ask for help since my local dealer is unable to repair...Or sell it.
Hope you guys have better luck with me with fords and air bags, or maybe its my local dealer. At this point I myself am so burnt out that I dont know what to do. Afraid of yelling obscene things to innocent people at the dealership, LOL...So just cover the light for now with the business card And hope someone who reads this works at another dealership, and knows what the problem is. Just tired of people guessing what it might need, and me missing work to try the ideas out. Code ought to pinpoint it to the T I would think.
May 11, 2003I have a 95 f150 and the airbag light was blinking either 23 or 32 and I had read on an earlier reply that it was probably the clock-springs in the steering column. I just had that replaced last week and it fixed it. I let the light blink for a while and then my horn quit working, just a thought.
June 4, 2003my 99 4x4 xlt ranger airbag light is flashing now also...i dont know the no# of blinks right now but ill post soon....but it happened after i bought some belt dressing i sprayed it on while the engine was running then i turned it off my girlfriend turned the passenger airbag from the off position to the on position and when i started it up agian it was blinking...could i have gotten some of the belt dressing crap on a sensor accidently
