My 2002 Ford Expedition Air Bag Light is on and Flashing Code 42

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition with the Air Bag Light on flashing 4 times then 2 times over and over. I tried turning off my car and restarting it but the light keeps coming back on and keeps flashing. I keep thinking my airbag is going to go off and it scares me. What should I do?

First off, anytime the airbag light is on the airbag system is turned off and will not deploy the airbag even if you get in a crash. You will need to have a mechanic scan the system and diagnose the problem and have it fixed. The most common issue on this particular vehicle is the the drivers side front airbag sensor becoming corroded. Cleaning the connections and or replacing the sensor is usually needed.
