Having problems with your 2000 Ford Explorer ?
The airbag indicator light flashes(3-blinks a pause then 2-blinks then repeats the sequence) at engine start then stays on after a minute or so
Code 32 on the airbag diagnostic circuit indicates a drivers side air bag wiring resistance out of range. This could be the connections on the clock spring in the steering or a loose connector to the air bag in the steering wheel. If you are not familure with the proper diagnostic proceedures I do not recomend attempting to repair it yourself. If the air bag circuit is not de-energized before removal there is a possibility of air bag deployment when removing it.
When my 2000 explorer had that issue it turned out to be the connector beneath the seat. Someone had kicked it. I learned the hard way the first time it happened. Ford dealer \012replaced the bag for $800. It happened again a few months later and I \012was told to check the connection under the front seat. I complained to \012Ford directly and they sent me a check for the $800. I have never heard\012 of that before but good for Ford. I replaced both under-seat connectors within a year of each other and never had the problem again. Shame on that dealer.
