I'm sure this is in the wrong forum, but i wasn't sure where it goes, mods please move if necessary. Anyway, My father just bought a used 2002 Ford Escape [4wd 3.0L V6 DOHC EEC-V SEFI]. And he neglected to notice that the car has an airbag light on in it Sooo now he needs me to fix this airbag light problem. I went to my old mechanic shop where i used to work and stole his ghetto brick snap on scanner and scanned the car. Here were the results: B1998 Key (Transponder) Programing Fail or LT or RT latch release CKT Fail. [01/01] (not sure what that code means, im guessing it means the key was either programmed incorrectly, or the left or right latch release "catch" is failing?) Also i ran a light check on it, and after the i cycle the key from OFF to RUN (without starting) the Airbag light flashes 3 times then it flashes 7 more times, leaving an airbag fault# 37 i believe. My problem that i am asking you guys is, what does the fault #37 mean (the snap on scanner only told me what a code 35 means and others below that, it did not have a 37 in there) and what does the error code B1998 mean? Is anyone on here a ford tech and can help me find the problem to this? Background on the car: My father tells me the car was in a head on accident where the right front headlight area was damaged. The car was repaired and the oriiginal owner kept the car for a year after the accident. I believe the original owner to be a 18 year old kid, as the car shows signs of aftermarket stereo wiring as well as a Roush "billet" grille in the front...which while looks nice... who puts a billit grill in an escape? I mean really Any and all help on this would be appreciated ASAP, as my father has a chance to return the car or make the dealer fix the problem if he acts fast enough.
