    I believe he is referring to the 2nd row seats. Did you work on the connector under the drive's seat? That is where most of the problems were. When someone says 'rear seats' I think of the 3rd row as well.

    I haven’t do anything on the driver seat, the weird thing is that the light isn’t always on, in the morning is always of and in my back from work in the afternoon on.

    Yes, it is always the second row for me. I have the bench, and find that either/both sides have wire and connector near the pivot at the front of the seat. It is tricky to get the connector to open up, so usually just wiggle the wires a little bit, and it does the trick for me.

    I have the same complaint. My airbag light was on/off over the last 2 months and now is on all the time. I contacted a representative from Ford and she said there hasn't been a recall for this particular issue yet but she made a record of the complaint with Ford and also directed me to register the complaint at the website below. The more complaints the better the chances are that this issue will be recalled so please contact both Ford on their website or by phone AND register the complaint with NHTSA. She also said if I get the repair done and the issue gets recalled I will also get a refund on the expense of the repair. Please register your complaints and lets get this issue recalled!!

    Welcome to the Forum Thea.:wave:
    Have you checked the connector under the driver's seat? It has been the cause of many of these issues.

    Where are the C210 and C211 connectors?

    I took off the driver's side scuff plate as the TSB mentions and did not locate them in the plastic box under the scuff plate.

    Working on a B1212 code, thank you!

    Thank you for the quick reply!

    “The requested thread could not be found.”

    Could it have been deleted for age?

    I just tried it and it worked for me. If you are not able to get it to work, just go to the List of Useful Thread inthe "Sticky" section of this subforum and go down to the Component View for the 2011 - 2015 Explorer.

    Thanks, I’ll give that a try on the laptop.

    Update: I found the two connectors behind the carpet on a hunch. Cleaned them up and the light is off!

    Thanks for the help!

    This was a symptom of a low battery on older models of Explorer.

    Mine came on 2 days after I bought my 2015 end of October. Been in the shop for a week now to replace 2 harnesses. Dealer thought the fix only involved one harness and the second one came in last Friday. TSB fix looks easy but I'm under warranty. So, I had the car 2 days and the dealer has had it 7 days.

    My battery died as I was taking possession of the vehicle, but I didn't notice the airbag light while trying to figure out all of the buttons to drive the thing. Day 9 and it's supposed to be ready today after I ripped into the dealer yesterday.
