All taurus and other ford's have problems with the connection under the passenger seat which I am betting that that is the one you changed and the passenger air bag light is on ////sometimes just moving the seat up will shut of the air bag light but the problem is in the connector you must clean the contacts on both sides(the seat side & the cars harness side and make sure that the metal parts fit very tight of course the plastic parts of the connector fit good but it's the metal inside them that must be very tight otherwise there's a break in the circuit and that airbag light will come on also check the continuity of the wires for both sides a wire can be broken or corroded inside and one more thing did you disconnect the battery before you changed the seat if not you set a the code yourself and disconnect the battery cables for 3-5 minutes only if you have a remote control for the car to take it out of theft mode when you reconnect the cables the alarm or horns will sound IF YOU DON'T HAVE A REMOTE CONTROL DO NOT DO THIS YOU'LL BE STUCK IN THEFT MODE AND TOTALLY GOING CRAZY BECAUSE YOU CAN'T START THE CAR OKAY READ THIS SLOWLY SO YOU UNDERSTAND PERFECTLY

SOURCE: Air Bag Code

Code 52 relates to low voltage detected in a capacitor inside the airbag module. 45 seconds after key on, this capacitor should have a voltage of around 23 volts.

This capacitor stores energy to deploy the airbag in the case of a collision.

Because your airbag light is on, your system is deactivated (cannot deploy)

In your case, the airbag computer detects less than 23 volts at that capacitor 45 seconds after key on, and disables the system.

There is a diagnostic procedure involved in fixing this problem, but usually means a bad airbag module (computer)

This should only be checked by a qualified technician, as airbag service can be dangerous and there are strict procedures to follow so the bags don't inflate suddenly and cause injury.

SOURCE: My air bag light is flashing. What does that

1. Get in your Pathfinder and CLOSE the door. Turn the key on one click to accessory mode so that all of the other lights on the dash are on but do not start the car. Now open your door and push the the button inside your door jamb that turns your interior light on 7 times. Close your door and then turn your key off.

Now start the Pathfinder...it should be off. If not, repeat this series a couple of times and it will go off. I have had theis happen twice and this is the correct way to fix the problem.

2. Similar story, similar results here too with a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder. Got a new stereo installed, and got a bonus with the blinking airbag light on the instrument panel. Got nowhere with the 7x or 10x domelight press-the-switch voodoo. Bounced into this forum and got the fix that works for my SUV. For the 2007 Pathfinder owners out there: You'll notice the ignition key "beep" is heard only 4 times, not 5.

It took a little patience, as this procedure took me 2 attempts. This is a slight modification from the one mentioned above for the Frontier and the Maxima, but this definitely worked for my 2007 Nissan Pathfinder:

1. Key in, ignition turned to on (but don't start truck).
2. Pay attention to the 4 beeps and watch the dash lights. You're looking for the airbag light to go out just after the last beep.
3. As soon as the light goes out (but BEFORE it begins blinking on you) QUICKLY switch the key back to OFF. Don't remove the key yet.
4. After about 2 or 3 seconds, repeat steps 1 - 3. In total you will do this procedure about 3 times. I say "about" because this all took a couple of attempts, but it was at least 3 cycles.
5. After your last cycle, wait about 5 seconds and turn the key to ON again, and just observe the dash for the airbag light. It should go out and stay out. If not, try it again but maybe add an additional cycle.

Like I said, it took me a couple of attempts but it worked. All credit must go to this website, with special thanks to the poster "LB" ( http://www.carsforums.com/nissan/7423-nissan-airbag-light-reset-fix.html#post65692 )

I hope help you with this. Good luck.

Air bag light flashes, flashes again and than stays on. Thought it was a fuse but that was not the problem. # 22 and #23 Fuses were good and the circuits were good. Still don't know the problem. If anyone...


here is one thing that i do before i remove the dash and connect the air bag light to the oil switch light or the gen light and to check the contacts under the front seats ,their is a connection block and a pyrotechnic connection under the seat ,remove the front seatrs and clean the connections with a soft lead pencil --often works if it sdoesnt then reire the light as its a annual vehicle inspection item here and a failure and when you go back to the dealers with their encrypted software diagnostic ,then its always a new module and air bags costing more than the vehicle is worth .So long as you dont drink and drive who needs them

2000 ford taurus- airbag code 36: What does it mean, and what does it cost to repair?


It means you have high resistance in the drivers or passengers side air bags... Heres the deal. check if the vehicle has side airbags usually noted on the side of the seats with the word air bag.. if there are no side air bags in the car than someone has put the wrong module in the vehicle. If it has side air bags go under the seats and check all electrical connectors to see if wires are broken or anything is unplugged. sometimes they unplug themselves from moving the seats or putting things under the seats.

The airbag indicator light flashes(3-blinks a pause then 2-blinks then repeats the sequence) at engine start then stays on after a minute or so


Code 32 on the airbag diagnostic circuit indicates a drivers side air bag wiring resistance out of range. This could be the connections on the clock spring in the steering or a loose connector to the air bag in the steering wheel. If you are not familure with the proper diagnostic proceedures I do not recomend attempting to repair it yourself. If the air bag circuit is not de-energized before removal there is a possibility of air bag deployment when removing it.

2001 air bag light flashing - what is reset fix?


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.


Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Since my last post, I found a bright yellow connector under the drivers seat. I took the connector off of the end, bent it a little, and put it back on. My air bag light has stayed off. I am going to put some electrical grease on it and see what happens.
