Airbag light flashes then stays on...
I have an '03 Lincoln Town Car Signature. Airbag light flashes sequence of 3 times, then
one time. Does this a couple times, then stays on. Any feedback? (Just got this car.)
take it and get the codes read out of the abs module. If the light is on a dtc has been set. Any parts store will be able to check and tell you what the code is.
A code 31 is not a viable code. Kbro is right get them read.

Thanx... Funny You just wrote this... I just got back in after driving & noticed that I got the sequence backwards. It's 1, then 3...
Guess that would be 13? But, I don't see that here. :/ I do plan on getting it checked out, though.
Yes, It's a code 13 then. My '94 Escort had a problem with the air bag system and would do the same thing. Flash the code with the light then stay on. But even the Ford Dealer couldn't fix it. It was an intermittent problem. The night I was hit, head on, the air bag light was off and it didn't deploy. So much for self diagnosis of the system! HTH. -Jim
I hace cod36
I have código 36
Marcos, check the chart above, drivers side air bag resistance low.
so is there a fuse you can replace for code 36? Or is it possible on these older vehicles, mine is a 1998 Lincoln Town Car, that after many years of vacuuming, moving seat back and forth, it might just need to be unplugged and plugged back in from a weak connection.
