94 Mustang air bag help needed!

My son had a front end collision in the 94 Mustang. We have all repaired and replaced the air bags and controller. Still getting the air bag light on. I did not replace the sensors on the front end, didn't think this was neccessary. Am thinking the computer needs to be reset? Any ideas?

Doc here,

Not a Ford guy at all..

But here is the procedure for repairing/resetting the SRS on a 94 Stang..

Hope it helps!

Or maybe one of our Good Ford Tech's out here can offer more!

Thanks Doc. I did all that and still have the bag light illuminated. When I replaced the bags and module, I did the proceedure described and thought I had it. The diagnostic takes place, the light goes out, then comes on continually shortly thereafter. I am betting there is a way to clear the light in the computer, but have no idea how.

Doc here,

One thing I did note while reading that..It says if you got in a front end Fender bender, and deployed the air bag, get a steady lamp, you need to have it inspected by a tech, or replace the sensor..maybe that's what you need to do to reset the system..(Or pull the bulb out.. )

Listen,

I have been following this post and unless you have been factory trained on SRS, you at least need the appropriate year shop manual. The system is tested with simulators in place of the bags to prevent accidental deployment. Full diagnostic procedures are described in the manual.

FORD Shop Manuals (CD Format) can be found fairly cheap on E-Bay.

I believe the sensors are the issue, but haven't found them anywhere yet. They are replaceable, have a connector under the wheel well, just haven't located any. I have a dealer parts manual and they are listed, so I'll try a dealer.
