    IF you turn the key to 'on' (not start) does the airbag light come on then go off after about 7 seconds , and stay off?

    Best bet is to have a shop with a scanner (needs to be compatible with Ford SRS) scan and see what the fault code(s) is. Any battery problems recently? ....... Remember, when light is on (primary , not pass. airbag) the system is disabled. It is NOT the passenger airbag light , correct?

    Do you have an owners manual , or did the TECH explain how the pass. side functions differently from the drivers side?
