This means there is a problem with your airbag system. You will have to take it to a mechanic or dealership to have the codes read to diagnose and repair the problem.

it's the front brakes. there a device that warns the computer when this part is missing. not sure what it looks like but it is a small clip, and secures somewhere at the top of the caliper. check with a ford dealer they can be more help too you. i had the same problem and once this was fix the air bag light shut off.

most likely a scensor going bad,located under front bumper,check to see if one is unpluged,is a square box where bumper is mounted to frame.

The ari bag light flashes trouble codes. Mine flashes one time follwoed by two times which checks out to be code 12 and it means 9 volts not getting to the air bag module. Codes are available on the internet. Thes forms surprise me at the unintelegent answers I see in these forms. If you don't know, just keep quiet. You are ruining a good thing/
