Sounds like you got the right infomation. A technician needs to do a diagnostic. I would recommended, ASAP. Since the SRS is part of what keeps you safe in an accident, you should have it looked at NOW.

It could be as simple as a "Low Battery" code that got set when you changed the car battery. A Tech with a code scanner can tell you why in about a minute, and clear the light in about one minute more.
Get it checked - the airbags are disabled when that light is set.

Just curious.
His flashes. Does that mean it disabled or would just work at less power?
I know this is a ford group. Does this also apply to other brands?

Work at "less power"??? What, like the bag only inflates halfway or what???
If the light is on or if the light is flashing, the restraints control module believes that there is a malfunction in the system.... it will not attempt to use even part of the system.
Lights and strange noises are some of the very limited ways our cars are able to say "I'm hurtin'"... We should listen....
