Thanks for the link, it proved to be the most helpful out of all the information! And sadly, it is seemingly inevitable that the stealer will once again, claim my money  .penguin said:I believe it is flashing a code 13 at you, which might mean "Air Bag Circuit or Crash Sensor Circuit - Shorted to Ground." (It does for some other Fords, and most likely for Focus'es as well). I'd check the wires going to the crash sensors to see if any have rubbed and worn a bare spot.
But for airbag stuff, you really should just take it to the dealer, unless you really know what you are doing. You don't want to accidentally set one off.
This info on Mustang airbags might also be of interest, as it describes the codes and much of this stuff tends o be common. But I wouldn't trust any of the pinouts mentioned:

Actually I called aroung in San Diego, and the price of the diagnostic isn't too bad.... between 100-150 bucks. The only reason I don't want to do it is it will show up on the carfax, if I intend on selling the car in the future.KariM said:My airbag light has been on for years. Like....4 years?
It doesn't flash or anything, but....everytime I take it somewhere they mention it and everytime I reply that people drove cars for many years with out airbags, and while it could most definitely help in a crash, it's not something that NEEDS to be fixed."
One dealership told me it'd cost $200 just to do diagnostics on it.

Well... when I went there, they said that it wasn't possible to check the airbags with their stuff. Is it an OBD2 code reader that diagnoses it, or is it a special airbag tool? Please let me know, as I will go down there tomorrow and pick it up!CSINUT2007 said:if you go to an autozone...You can loan a tool that will cost 148.00...but, once you return it you get a full refund...lol...i know that becuase i work at an autozone....in CALI, we can no longer go out to your car and do it becuase of national auto buareu (sorry for spelling error) said we cant...
so call a local autozone and see if they have one....hope this helps
