Your battery is dead, dead as a doornail. Charger 'er up, or grab some nice jumper cables, and crank 'er up.

Where are the locations of the crash sensors on a 2008 Ford Ranger?

It is typically the job of the airbag module to sense when the vehicle is decelerating beyond the normal rate, and to deploy the airbags.
If the module has suffered excessive corrosion, then this would typically mean that there is water ingress into the interior compartment. Have you also checked the condition of the wiring connectors and looms?

The air bag light came on for a couple of days, now the car will not start.

Unless the airbag light was coming on due to a low voltage condition (like a bad alternator or battery) the two problems will not have anything to do with one another. A Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) or (AIRBAG) malfunction will not cause the engine to not start.

There is nobody that can tell you why your engine is not starting without first diagnosing the nature of the problem.

2005 Ford Freestar after starting van or even w/o starting and key turned to 'on' position gets 5 audible beeps (five times total) with no light illuminated on the dash.

Most Fords will give you an audible warning if there is an issue that would normally light on the dash AND the bulb is burnt out. This could be an emissions (check engine) light or air bag light. Even without the light on the dash, the computer will store a code that can be used to find out which light is on.

How to reset airbag light on 2008 ford fusion

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat

(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity2_bing.gif problem.

I DO NOT disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s)

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.


Please rate me answer if it is useful to you.
