I have a 93 Aerostar 4. I believe it is the clockspring. I do not have a schematic of the electrical components of the clockspring so I really need help on this. Thanks Posted by: aerocolorado There was a problem with some of the early airbag equipped models with the electrical leads being too short and stress failures. With all your components out, I would bet you have just broken the leads. Whether or not you can just repair them with jumpers, I don't know, mine is not similarly equipped.

Airbag Light Codes for Fords by Alexander Poirier When there is a problem with a Ford's airbag, the airbag warning light will illuminate and flash a code that identifies the problem. Because airbag problems range from a lost battery feed to a shorted circuit, it is important to understand the codes so that the airbag can be properly repaired. Codes 12 to 14 These codes are started by a single flash of the indicator light, followed by a two-second pause. After the pause, the light will flash the number of times that corresponds to the second digit of the code. Code 12 single flash, pause, two flashes means that there is a lost battery feed. Code 13 single flash, pause, three flashes means that the airbag circuit has shorted to ground and Code 14 single flash, pause, four flashes means that the primary crash sensor circuit has shorted to ground.
Number denotes number of flashes 1 - One flash cycle: Driver air bag module squib resistance out of range 2 - Two flash cycle: Passenger air bag module squib resistance out of range 3 - Three flash cycle: Short to battery plus or ground in section of air bag squib circuit common to both driver and passenger air bag modules 4 - Four flash cycle: Safety belt buckle pretensioner s failure. Short to battery plus or ground in safety belt buckle pretensioner circuit s 5 - Five flash cycle: Driver side air bag module or circuits failure 6 - Six flash cycle: Passenger side air bag module or circuits failure 7 - Seven flash cycle: Driver side impact sensor or circuits failure 8 - Eight flash cycle: Passenger side impact sensor or circuits failure Additions SRS Airbag system Diagnostic Fault codes Mondeo does not require bridging any pins to get code, if a fault is detected, SRS warning light will automatically flash fault code. Flashes Problem 1 Drivers airbag failure:- Driver airbag squib out of resistance 2 Passengers airbag failure:- Passenger airbag squib out of resistance 3 Failure of both airbag units:- failure of circuit commen to both airbags 4 Pyrotechnic seatbelt pretensioner failure Either side 5 Drivers airbag failure - System shorted 6 Passengers airbag failure - System shorted 7 Drivers crash sensor failure 8 Passengers crash sensor failure Common Fault: The airbag warning light flashing 4 times is a common fault on late Mk1 and all Mk2 mondeo's using the pyrotechnic pretensioners - especially if you have recently moved the position of one of the front seats. Turn the igntion off and allow the car to sit for 15 minutes.
