    Just bought a 58 plate Mk6 plate Fiesta Zetec S and it has the airbag light on following the last the owner having the airbag turned off for a child to use the front seat.

    Do I have to go to fords to get this turned back on or is there another way that I can do it.

    Thanks

    Have a look in the glovebox there should be a key hole for you to turn the air bag back on. IIRC.;)

    Didn't the last owner tell you how to do it?
    I've heard that on some newer Ford's it's automatic.
    So when you put a childseat in it detects it and shuts off the airbag.
    Then when you take the seat out it turns the airbag back on.

    Also heard that this maybe be a Ford dealer mod using a kit to de-activate it. Check with Ford themselves.

    Yes he told me it was done by fords but obviously wanted to not involve fords and their prices. Can they be controlled via a diagnostic tool via the db2 connector or do they plug in somewhere else.

    I think it is a hard wired kit, not 100% sure though.
