Sorry, I haven't been able to find out any more information, other than it may have something to do with the airbag & it may stop if you disconnect (then reconnect) the connections under the 2 front seats. The connections look rather complicated & I'm afraid of breaking them. I'd like to drive this thing off a cliff, but can't do that, so I just blast the music. If you learn anything else, please let me know. I wrote a letter to the Ford Corporate Office, but they just said to bring it to a Ford Service Center & pay them by the hour ( $100.00/hr) until they figure it out. I can't afford to do that again. I won't be buying any more Fords, that's for sure.

We've been having the same problem with ur 2002 Windstar but haven't found the solution. It's intermittent. A couple of years ago dealer said it was third party add-on (though we bought the alarm with the car from the dealer) and we'd have to go chase someone else down. Wasn't happening often then so we let it go. Problem becoming more persistent now. Anyone else?

I tracked the beeping down to the computer box or brain of the car that is under your dash right by the firewall on my crown victoria. To collaborate with others out here, i have many dash lights that are blown out and i also have air bag issues so the correlations are becoming evident. As far as ford not know what it is i don't buy it for a minute. They play that game as standard practice to rape people out of money in my humble opinion. Thats why they get hardly any business because people are not dumb. Take care

As soon as i figure out the exact solution and the actual labor time, i'll post it on here for everyone unless someone beats me to it, but rest assured, i will figure it out.

Thank you very much for your answer - I bought a Jeep so now my husband is stuck with the beeping; it doesn't bother him. I would still appreciate any further comments, though; I do still have to travel in that vehicle sometimes. I agree with you about Ford playing a game, that's why I didn't buy another one. Thanks again!

I ahve the same problem in my 2002 LX Windstar PLUS check engine light. Can't get it through emissions and the check engine light comes back on each time. Any advice? IS a ford dealer a better choice than national chain "tire and muffler" shop? Thank you

I actually put mine off for a long time, but all you have to do is remove the plastic pice under the windshield and it is very easy to gain access.
#76 of 91 Ford Windstar Airbag Light

My airbag light just started going on. It flashes 5 times through a couple of cycles and then stays lit. I tried the connections under the passenger seat. Really don't want to pay Ford hundreds when it is probably nothing. Can anyone offer advice?

If you take the wiper arms off and the trim piece under them, it is very easy to get to the rear plugs.
