'02 GT. I did a heater core swap last weekend and airbag light is solid on. Not flashing at all. Is there a reset for the '99-04? I did not find a jumper plug behind the glove box. The only info I can find is 94-98. I'm pretty positive I have everything plugged in that we unplugged. I do have 1 connector that is not plugged up that i am 99% sure was not plugged into anything, on the driver side coming from the main harness. Female Gray plug 2 wires White and Red/Blue stripe.



Yes I know how to unplug the light.....No that's not what I want to do.:rolleyes:

Thanks

Cody

If everything is hooked up and in working condition, the light should go off on its own. Disconnect the battery, hold the brake pedal down for a little bit to drain the system, and reconnect it. You can always hook a scanner up, if you have access, to get a better idea of the fault. I would bet something is disconnected or a wire is pinched.

There should only be 3 connectors under the dash for air bags right? Pax/Driver and the air bag monitor? I made sure all were connected, checked fuse, undid battery and pushed brake but it still comes on. Guess its off to ford to get it scanned. I am almost positive that the 99-04's do not have a reset plug like in the video. Please someone correct me if I am wrong

there are three connectors behind the dash.

the airbag drivers side (i'd suggest making sure this is plugging in, as its the easiest to get to -- just two bolts on the sides of the steering wheel)
next is the passenger side (take out the glove box -- 3 bolts, then two bolts holding the bag in. Slide out the bag.)
finally, the trigger box is behind the shifter. simply remove the shifter-bezel and inspect that it's still attached.

in conclusion, i'd check your pedal assembly for that extra plug you've got. sounds like the clutch-engagement sensor or the brake-pedal sensor.

**DO ALL OF THIS WITH THE BATTERY UNPLUGGED. YOU DONT WANT TO GET HIT IN THE FACE WITH AN AIR-BAG!!!**

I think your right about the extra plug being the clutch engage sensor plug. I did forget to mention its an automatic. I will triple check the connectors again tomorrow. I always undo the battery when messing with SRS systems lol To many funny videos of people who screw it up to not pay attention to.
