Default HELP .Airbag light stays on,horn doesnt work ...

I replaced the clock spring thinking that was it ,and I checked the fuses. My horn,interior lights ,and power door locks dont work .Also,when I start it ,the airbag lights blinks ,and then stays on .

What else is there ? Its a 97gt ,5speed.


p.s.-I just had the entire dash out ,replacing the heater core. There is one plug behind the glove box that is not hooked to anything .

Sounds like your steering column wiring harness is not all connected. Trace it trough with a wiring schematic. And give all the connectors a good push to make sure they're ALL seated. Maybe one of them just "looks" like it's fully in place.

Do your turn signals/wipers/etc all work?

My horn ,interior lights,tail lights,power locks dont work,and my air bag lights stays on.

I have my center console out,and those plugs are undone ,but i dont think they would affect that stuff.

You'd be surprised how much cross-connectivity there is in a car wiring harness. Sometimes several circuits share a common ground, disconnect that & all hell breaks loose. Reconnect all the stuff & try it out again just to confirm that ISN'T your problem

ITS FIXED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok,the big *** plug on the drivers side floor with the bolt in it wasn't tightened all the way ! It was plugged in tight ,but I said hey,what do I have to loose ? So I tightened down on the bolt a few times , stuck the key in the ignition ,puckered my *** cheeks ,and turned the key . The chime was goin,dome lights were on,oh it was sweet sweet music !

Thanks to everyone who chimed in (pun intended) and offered up their advise .I know you guys probably haven't slept in day because of this (yeah right) ,but you can rest easy that muh Stang is back in business !![sm=bounceybounce.gif][sm=gears.gif][sm=patriot.gif]
