Re: EF Falcon airbag warning light

best to take it to a dealer.
Air bag isnt something u wanna be fiddling with.

could be as simple as the wiring plug has become disconnected

As EF mentioned dont be playing with it mate, could take your head right off..
Take it to the dealer ASAP last thing you want is that going off as your driving down the Freeway..
And Welcome aboard mate.

Re: EF Falcon airbag warning light

It's actually very common on the EF's for some reason. My EF wagon has the some issue, so does a few others that I'm aware of.
Mine started when I got a flat battery. Once the new battery went in the light played up. That was over 2 years ago (and another battery since when I left the lights on). Havent had cause to test out if the airbag still works though and havent been able to find out what caused it in the first place either.

Re: EF Falcon airbag warning light

I Drove to a ford dealer with the airbag off the car (was replacing steering wheel at the time) and the light was on
certainly good to know it detects that sort of thing
