My sons truck( 01F150 Supercrew, 4wd, 122K), airbag light flashing code 32.
I have searched this great site, and the concensus is that the clockspring is bad. In almost every case, the posts also say that a symptom of the bad clockspring is the horn and CC functions fail to work also.
My issue is his horn and CC STILL work. I don't want to tear the steering column apart to replace the clockspring if there could be another cause of the code 32. I have noticed that his "key reminder" chime rings with the door open, whether the keys are in the ignition or not. Don't know if it related to a bad clockspring?
Can the clocksrping still throw the code, yet these functions still work? Could there be another cause for the code other than the clockspring?
Any suggestions would be appreciated in advance. Thanks, Mike
Code 32 is driver side airbag circuit high resistance.
It needs to be taken apart to find the cause and not just replace parts on luck.
Either way it has to be looked at.
Use caution working on an airbag system or it will blow and you could get hurt.
Remove power by discinnecting the battery and leave it for awhile.
Then remove the air bag and place it out of the way.
Never try to measure it's resistance or it will blow on the spot from the meter's battery circuit.
Best to get the shop procedure to follow for safety and learning what the circuit is.
