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

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.
