Air bag code 1995 Mercury Sable

I have a 1995 Mercury Sable. 79,000 miles, 3.8 liter, automatic transmissiom. The air bag light is blinking a code. 4 blinks then pause and 2 blinks then long pause and the cycle starts again. I would assume that this is code 42? Does anyone know what that means?

Thanks for the information. Have you ever seen this failure before and is it expensive to fix?

it MUST be diagnosed according to the...

...diagnostics written by the manufacturer. there are specific tests to perform to determine whether it's a wiring, sensor or controller problem. get it checked by a pro... ...airbags are nothing to guess about

Code 42

To answer your question No I have not seen this. From the pinpoint test it could be a open circuit in the wiring harness,open circuit inside the left primary crash sensor,or a short to battery or ignition voltage in any of the circuits. It looks like you will have to take it some where?
