    Will my ute get a warrant with airbag lght flashing?

    2010 Ford ranger

    Airbag list suddenly started flashing. it flashes once then 9 times. So code 19.

    Google says its a full RCM?? caused by a crash or something.

    No crash has happened it just started flashing all of a sudden a few weeks ago, flashes the code 5 times then just stays on.

    Will it get a warrant? Anyone no a simple fix?

    Obviously, it is electrical, so a hammer isnt going to help...

    Could this be light up to indicate that the brake pads are low?

    no idea??? dont think so tho, google seems to have a pretty conclusive reason. It just doesnt make sense as everything i read says this particular code means its had a crash and a bag has deployed but it certainly hasnt....

    I'd make Ford fix it, it is only four years old.

    As for a dodgy fix to get a warrant, is it worth saving money on something that potentially will, or currently won't save your life or a family members life in a smash?

    Sent from my work bench
    If i could have a full time job shooting pests i'm up for over time.
