No matter what they attempted, this client could not get the airbag light to go off on the dash in this used Ford F-150. They were spending hours of time and money with this 2007 F-150 electrical problem. This was because it was spent on parts. All done to clear the airbag light and get the airbag safety system to work properly. So basically, they were guessing. Eventually, this west Erie pre-owned vehicle dealer client was at their “wits’ end” over this headache. Finally, Tom said enough is enough and brought the vehicle to the automotive electrical experts at ENORMIS.
2007 F-150 Electrical Problem Solved
The car dealer dropped off the F-150 and we tasked MECP-certified technician Art Dougan with this diagnostic work. After that, Art was able to scan and retrieve codes related to the airbag SRS system, using our Ford factory diagnostic computer. From there, Art was able to determine that there was a “communication issue” with certain airbag SRS modules. Obviously, that is not a defective part! Using the ENORMIS computers, Art researched and found the factory wiring diagrams, which allowed him to trace the communication harnesses. Art found that a broken wire was preventing communication. In detail, this wire was in the main wiring harness that carries communication from the front to the rear of the vehicle.
Art removed the corroded wiring and installed new wiring to restore the SRS airbag communication. In the end, he completed the diagnose and repair in less than 3 hours. Not only that, but he solved the issue that was causing nothing but grief to the client. That meant, less time and money than guessing!
