ford focus airbag programming

Post by Radiosolutions » Sat Jan 11, 2020 6:59 pm

63 reg focus. Airbag light is on ,fault is to do with passenger airbag disable indicator. Fault is permanent. I have tried a couple of modules and confirmed by ford correct module is fitted. The car does not have the passenger disable key switch and cannot see any disable indicator. I look at configuration in airbag module and these are disabled, but fault is still present. Would the bcm have any data for the airbag. Can anyone help please.

Hello
I did retrofit of passenger airbag deactivation switch in Focus Mk2 .
You need buy orig switch from Ford - I used 6M2T-14B268-AA.
They sell also original check light ,but who will pay 70EUR+ for justpece of plastics and LED.
As DIY you can use just Red LED diode in serial wit 4k7 resistor and self made label .
For this focus there were already prepared connector for check light in central panel (2wires).
And 6pin connector (3 wires used) behind glowes box.
When you plug these (Switch and LED) RCM module will discover switch and connected LED, and then will indicate Airbag error as "switch off passenger airbag" function is not enabled in RCM module.
If you disconnect LED and switch you need clear raised DTC ( error) in RCM.

To activate I used software ELMConfig for Ford cars .
I have no knowledge How to change config of RCM in Forscan.
