Air bag light keeps going off and on. Mentioned it to service manager at ford garage when I had my oil changed. He stated that ford had a safety memo out on the problem but refuses to recall. He further stated that ford would not fix the problem as they don't consider it a safety concern. The problem is that the air bags may or may not deploy when in an accident. How can this not be a safety issue. Ford garage wants approximately $1200.00 dollars to fix the problem.
