Re: 1999 au airbag light is on

Passenger air bag circuit open. Possible causes:
a) bad connection or corrosion in passenger airbag module (air con water condensation leak);
b) open circuit or high resistance in wiring harness;
c) open circuit or high resistance in passenger side airbag module

It probably means that the resistor that sit in the circuit to take the place of the airbag has failed, fallen out or the harness connection there has failed. Check for a loose connection under the passenger's seat and above the glovebox.

This should help Australian Ford Forums



These might too (different models but same issue)
