Question Airbag light

Hi all,

I drive a '98 Contour at work (4 cyl, auto....your basic low-bid POS) and the airbag light started flashing today. Not sure if it means anything, but it would flash in a "53" pattern. It quit doing it towards the end of shift, and before I take it to the shop I was hoping someone could tell me if there is anything I can check before putting the car out of service for a few days.

Anyone have a FSM that they can take a look at and see if "53" has any meaning relating to the airbag?

Thanks

This happened to me one day in my Cougar. My battery terminal had some corrosion on it. I was told that while the light is flashing the bag can not deploy. Cleaned the battery terminal and it never happened again. :s5
