Airbag lights stays on even after replacing clock spring

3859 5
I bought my 05 Focus ZX3 used in 2008. About a year later, the airbag light starting coming on and staying on. I finally took it in and it was determined the clock spring needed to be replaced, which I did have replaced. The repair shop could not get the light to stay off however, and the airbag light continues to stay on. Now, my son is trying to get the state inspection done, which of course failed because of the light. This shop is telling him of course that the clock spring needs to be replaced after they scanned the system. I'm going to call them tomorrow and would really appreciate any suggestions I could give them besides replacing the clock spring again. Please help! [dunno]

Well, I called the shop where my son took the car and gave them the whole back story, telling them the clock spring had alreafy been replaced 3 years ago. They were humble enough to take my thoughts and suggestions but in the end, they had to replace the clock spring anyway. So far the light is off, but we will see. The light went off last time too, but only for a while. The folks who installed the last clock spring may have tweekef something during the install. From what I can tell, this part can be very touchy. Another $350. I will keep y'all comprised of the status. So sad this car has so many documented cases for this big problem with Ford never taking action.
