The airbag light on my 1990 Taurus has just started flashing 6 times, stops
and then repeats.
Anyone know what this error code means?
Do I have to be concerned about the airbag inflating, or is this an
indication that a sensor or controller
is fried and the system is no longer functioning?
Thank you in advance for any help or advice.

afaik (buyer beware and all that)
89-91 code #6 = Driver-Side Air Bag Circuit - Open or High Resistance
fyi 92 + the code is 2 digits (flash - pause - flash ... repeat)
as a wild guess ... it could be corrosion on the connections ... BUT
unless you really know what you're doing .. I would not recommend
poking around. Deploying a bag could be an expensive.
just tell the service guy the code and they should tell you the damage
... for the age of your vehicle I'd look at contact corrosion first
.. if they start talking sensors out of the gate .. I'd probably get
another esitimate (but theres no rhyme or reason other than going for
the less costly
if you do know ... disable the system according to your model's
specifics (mine is ignition off ... detach negative terminal at
battery ... detach positive ... wait 2 minutes for the module backup
power supply to deplete)
I haven't played with airbags .. so I'm only repeating what I read
my vehicle don;t seem to rate safety features :)
