Re: Air Bag Light Blinks Code 12 in 1998 Mercury Mountaineer
Thank you JWKO !!! It was indeed a blown fuse 5 under the hood in the Power Distribution box. However, now I get code 52, which I have read just says there was a power interrupt (which was the fuse that I replaced). So, I tried following Bert's link and it said to short 2 pins on the diagnostic connector. However, one of the two pins it specified to short together was missing. The connector had metal sleaves in only some of the slots. Bottom row 3rd from the left had no metal to short to.. I'm going to go to the auto parts store, get a diagnostics thingy and see if I can do a reset using it. Wish me luck.. At least Error 12 is gone and as I understand it, error 52 will eventually go away now that error 12 has been repaired. Thanks everybody !! Any further advice on resetting the Error Code 52 on my 1998 Mercury Mountaineer would be greatly appreciated!!
