Mondeo Airbag warning

Hi FordGroup

From about one week on my Mondeo
The AirBag warning lamp blinks continuously at periods of 4flashes and
pause

Does this, blink code, signify something's wrong ?
Some suggestion ?

Thanks

Jaime

It is an error code. On the related Contour/Mystique, some codes could
be caused by a weak battery. How old is the battery in your car?

Re: Mondeo Airbag warning

Thank you Andrew,

Your knowledge make a coherent answer
Effectively the battery is, at least, 4,5 years old.
I'll organise a test with à new one.

You'll be informed.
again thanks

Jaime

Re: Mondeo Airbag warning

I'm not aware of batteries causing this on Mondeo, 4 flashes is normally a pre-tensioner fault.

Re: Mondeo Airbag warning

Problem is solved (I hope): I disconnected the battery and (vacuum)cleaned the interior of the car with emphasis around and inside pretensioner/seat belt buckles. When connecting the battery again the airbag warning flashes were gone!
