Problem Description and Possible Solution
Illuminated of the airbag warning light may be caused by a lost connection between the clockspring (behind the steering wheel) and the steering wheel-mounted electrical components. Other steering wheel-mounted controls like the horn, speed (cruise) control, or radio controls (if equipped) may be inoperative. There is a lifetime warranty on the clockspring as specified in a combination of recall campaigns.

What problems haven't I had with this vehicle? I could just click the "me too" button for everything on this site honestly. Biggest POS I have ever purchased! New tranny, new computer, new window mech, new water pump, new timimg belt and tensioner, along will various other belts. Still has a miss, engine revs and surges for no reason, dash flashes like it's possessed. FOREIGN MOTOR! Mitzubishi to be exact. Going back to my beloved FORD!!!
AirBag light on. Also have fluttering on the speedometer and odometer. Between the three, it is draining the battery and it will not hold a charge. It is a new battery so it is not the battery. The car was my aunts and has had minimal use until 2013.
