My airbag light just starts blinking randomly for no reason at all. It blinks seven times. I've brought it into the Mercury dealership three times for this problem in the past. They do tests on the airbag, SO THEY SAY, and everything's fine. Then it happens again.

seven blinks. What the heck is wrong with my airbag? I doubt if this ford airbag would save my life if I crashed. It would probably pop out after my face hit the winshield.

Take it to a different dealer. Ford or mercury.

Mine did that for awhile off-and-on when I would first start the car. Then I would shut the car off and start it again and it would be fine...2 weeks later my alternator died. Don't know if the two are related. I think I remember reading on here that it was a sign of a problem in the electrical system, not so much having to do with the airbags not functioning, but with a short or a bad relay. Either way you need to take it to a Mercury dealer that has seen the problem before.
