99 F150 Airbag Code

When turning on the ignition, the airbag light flashes seven times, pauses, then flashes two more times. I'm reading this as code 72? Does anyone know what this means?

Are you sure it isn't a 27 code? There doesn't appear to be a 72 code possible.

A 27 code indicates a problem with the Passenger Airbag Deactivation warning lamp circuit....

As always, if you don't know what you are doing around an airbag system, leave it to a pro. The airbag can be extremely dangerous to the untrained person.

Yes, it is actually code 27, not 72

Lamp Fault Code (LFC) 27 indicates that the Restraints Control Module (RCM) has determined that there is a fault in the Passenger Airbag Deactivation (PAD) warning lamp circuit.

Most probable cause is a burned out lamp followed by a faulty RCM. The lamp is not listed as being serviceable by itself meaning the module would be replaced as a unit if the bulb is faulty. Perhaps someone has investigated this closer and can comment if the bulb can be replaced separately.

In any event, before working on any component of the airbag system, disconnect the battery and wait at least one minute before doing anything else. Airbags can be dangerous to the untrained person and are best left to the pro.
