Hiya, I have a 2008 Ford S-max, I have recently bought it and the air bag light is on. I am sure it was not on when I bought the car, but there is a chance I did not notice it. This is fault code I am getting from Forscan –
===RCM DTC B1126:13-8A===
Code: B1126 - Drivers Side-Side Airbag Deployment Control
Additional Fault Symptom:
- Circuit Open
Status:
  • DTC Present at Time of Request
  • Malfunction Indicator Lamp is On for this DTC
Module: Restraint Control Module


I cant see any problems with the wires underneath the seat and I have even tried swapping the driver’s seat and that hasn’t worked.

Does anyone know the wiring colours or where they run in the car for the Drivers Side -Side Airbag? I am not 100% sure if the code is related to the ones in the seat or the curtain airbags above the roof lining.

Thanks

Be careful. Airbags are a category of fault that will keep the light on even after the fault has cleared. So you will have to clear the code even after a repair. If you don’t have suitable tools (reset tool) or experience then it’s probably worth investing in an experienced opinion by an independent Ford garage. Good luck
