Airbag light on battery dead

Asked by Jan 04, 2017 at 08:53 PM about the 2008 Ford Escape

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I went to turn my car on and it would not start. The
passenger airbag light is on and the battery died. I
heard a ticking noise. After a while I finally got it
started and when I tried to turn it on again it did the
same thing. Is the battery dead or do you think it is
an electrical problem?
