2012 Explorer Airbag Light Code B1212:13-8F

Postby arslan.hamid » Wed Oct 12, 2016 9:32 am

Hi guys,

Airbag light stays ON on my Explorer 2012 XLT. Checked it out using FORScan, got code B1212:13-8F.
B1212 means driver side buckle pretensioner, while the 13 means the circuit if open. Wondering what the "8F" indicates. Does it point to a specific connector or harness on the circuit? I understand there are 3 connectors on this circuit - C3065, C210 and C310.

PID Deploy_18_R indicates 4 ohm resistances, which is out of 2.87 threshold. I need to diagnose the connector having the "open" circuit.

I read somewhere about opening each connector and jumping the pretensioner pins. Should this be done while the vehicle is running?

Anyone with practical experience, please help!

arslan.hamid,
Before taking the step to jump connectors, have you been able to physically verify that all the pins are seated in their proper connector? I only mention this because I bought my Explorer used, and upon inspecting the reconditioning report, it appeared that I had the same trouble code as you (B1212). In my case, the technician found a loose connection at connector C210, which resolved the error code completely. Attached is a snapshot of that portion of the reconditioning report. If you need locations and views of the connectors, let me know, Im sure I can dig them up in my Ford shop DVD. Hope this helps!
