Need to clear the air bag light

Recommended Posts

I'm currently resurrecting a 2012 FTC - I bought it wrecked and have it just about completed.  The front end was only marginally damaged but the air bag deployed.  I replaced the air bag, clock spring and the module under the center console, but the amber dash light won't go out.  Does that have to be cleared on the ECM?  Any advice is greatly appreciated - Thanks!

The airbag new module will need to be armed using the appropriate scan tool and software, usually a dealership affair. Providing you did everything right, it should not be a big deal, but you'll have to pay the charge to arm the module. Keep in mind, whenever the airbag light is on, the system will not function by design.

If the module, clockspring and airbag are from another vehicle, is this still the case?  I thought that maybe I had to change the shoulder seat belt restraint assembly in the pillar.  At any rate, thanks for the 

response - I'll give my local Ford dealer a call..
