Airbag Reset

96 Taurus GL 3.0L Code 52 (pwr. Interrupt) Forum thread states go to data link conn. next to fuse panel. Short Top row 4th pin from left to Bottom Row 3rd from left. Essentially air bag clear pin to gnd. You'll hear 5 beeps then remove the wire.

I don't see a data link connector next to my fuse panel. If the thread is referring to the OBD II conn. under dash, then those pins are not accurate. Hopefully, a forum member can provide insight to this subject and has illustrations as well.

Re: Airbag Reset

Just an insight. If your not experienced with this and have any doubts DON'T PLAY
with the air bag system. If you accidentally blow off the air bag you might as well look for
another car. My wife was cut off and hit another car. ( not her fault ). She is very short and had the seat pulled up. ( minimum clearance from the steering wheel is 18 inches ).
The air bag went off breaking her nose and splitting her cheek open. Another woman was
palming the steering wheel in a Cavalier when the air bag went off on a turn ( problem with those cars ). Drove her hand into her face breaking her nose, fractured her cheek,
broke two fingers and almost lost her left eye. DON'T PLAY WITH AIR BAGS. Just a thought.

Re: Airbag Reset

I agree, The airbag system is not something the typical DIY should mess with. Clocksprings, crash sensors, modules, etc. should be left to the trained experts in the field. I am sorry to hear that people are getting hurt. My question arose from a code 52 (power interrupt) when the car was without the alternator. the forum discussed in a thread a reset without a specialized scan tool. That reset does not coincide with what is physically there in the car. Therefore, I was seeking a clarification.

Thank You, DriftMGR (Certified ASE Parts Tech)

Re: Airbag Reset

Is there a factory service manual for that car you can find ? Know someone in a dealership ? Maybe they can help.

Exclamation Re: Airbag Reset

Servicing an airbag system can be dangerous if not careful. If you really need to do it youself, just be very careful. There is no reset grounding a pin of a connector. The code relates to loss of power to the Airbag Diagnostic Monitor (Airbag Module).

NORMAL OPERATION
The air bag diagnostic monitor measures the voltage at Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) of the air bag diagnostic monitor connector. Voltage at Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) should be equal to battery voltage. If the voltage at Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) drops to less than 8 volts, the air bag diagnostic monitor will flash a lamp fault code 12 on the AIR BAG indicator. If the voltage at Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) drops to less than 5 volts, the DTC B1867 will also be stored in memory. Should the loss of battery voltage at Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) be intermittent or repaired, the air bag diagnostic monitor will flash a lamp fault code 52 (or higher priority code if one exists) on the next ignition switch cycle.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
Note: If a short to ground exists on any of the Circuits 607 (LB/O), 614 (GY/O), 615 (GY/W), or 616 (PK/BK) leading to a lamp fault code 13 or 53 and DTC B1913 or similarly a short to ground exists on any of Circuits 619 (PK/W), 624 (Y/W), 625 (Y/LG) or 617 (PK/O) leading to a lamp fault code 14 or 54 and DTC B1914 the air bag diagnostic monitor will activate an internal solid state switch at Pin C1-13 of the air bag diagnostic monitor. This causes fuse 16 (10A) to blow, thus disarming the air bag system and preventing inadvertent air bag deployment. If power distribution box fuse 16 has blown, it must be replaced by a 10A fuse.

Low Voltage At Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) Can Be Caused By:

1. An open in the battery circuit that would prevent battery positive voltage (B+) from reaching air bag diagnostic monitor Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y).
2. A short to ground on the battery feed circuit between the Fuse 13 (10A) and Pin C1-13, Circuit 609 (O/Y) or Pin C1-14, Circuit 609 (O/Y) of the air bag diagnostic monitor.
3. A concern in the charging system causing battery voltage to drop below 8 volts. After the air bag diagnostic monitor has disarmed the air bag system, it will not be enabled to disarm again until the appropriate condition (DTC B1913 or B1914) has been serviced and cleared by performing appropriate pinpoint tests.
