1999 Mercury Cougar Airbag Flashing off and on

\015 When I start my car, the airbag light flashes off and on, and will not turn off. What is the issue?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Generally speaking, the flashing light means there is a problem with the system and the air bag has been deactivated.
If the light is flashing in a pattern you can count the flashes and find out what the code is telling you. The codes are available online.
If it is just flashing steady, you would need to take it to a shop and have the system diagnosed.
Keep in mind working on the SRS system is dangerous since you can trigger the air bag if you make any mistakes.

I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar with 90k miles on it. The last time I drove the car, the check engine light came on and flashed for about 15 seconds or so, then turned off.
