Airbag Code 46

My 2002 Ford Airbag light is flashing 46. I beleive this is the Drivers side crash senor. I am repairing the left front fender and left front wheel suspension. I have replaced the two air bags and airbag control module.

1. Were is the left front crash sensor?

2. Were can I buy one? Ford wants $165.00

Code 46 indicates on open circuit in the driver side pretensioner. If the air bags deployed the pretensioner will also need to be replaced. Also this vehicle does not have a front mounted crash sensor.

You may need to remove the seat to access the mounting bolt.Also be sure to route the wire the same as it is removed or it can get cut in the seat track. the pretensioner is the buckle end not the belt.

Kind of a late response, but might help the next guy. There is a TSB about "high resistance" in the drivers side pre-tensioner causing the airbag warning light to stay on. The TSB has some taping technics and spray to clean oxidation off the connector. I found the spray at Radio Shack. Wiggle the connector under the driver set, with the car off, and see if that resolves the warning light off. If so this is probably your problem.

WD40 worked perfect for me and the lights now off. I made sure clean by unplugging and reconnecting several times. Finally made sure it was seated firmly on last connection. Thanks guys for the post solutions!

Welcome to FTE.
Good use of the search function. Old thread, but with some good TSB input about the seat belt under seat electrical connector high resistance contact issue, which is a common problem for the passenger side under seat connector also. Good to hear the info proved helpful for you 5+ years later.
