I was told the censor was rusted out and that if I did'nt fix it the air bag would not come out if I was in an accident.

Explorer Limited V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

Last October, the airbag light went on. I had it fixed for $300 at my local Ford Dealership. Now it is eight months later, and it is on again. I have to pay another $100 to run a diagnostic test. Anyone else having this problem? Does it ever really get fixed?
