 Description of the problemOn sat june 7, 2014 i noticed the drivers side airbag light was solid yellow and stayed on until i returned home that evening. On monday june 10th, i got up and went to the store and noticed it was off. Since then it has came on and went back off at various stages of driving, from highway speeds to an idle at a traffic light. Also, the passenger side air bag light does do not come on when my granddaughter is sitting in the front seat, she is 14 years old and weighs approx 90#. I have taken it to the ford dealer in cookeville tennessee and they kept it over night and advised me that they could not duplicate the issue and no repairs were performed. They have told me that since they could not duplicate the issue there was nothing they could do and the vehicle was "safe" to continue to drive as normal. On the way home from the dealership, the drivers side air bag light came back on and has since went off and on several times since then. I do have pictures that are time and date stamped of each subsequent incident and the speed and odometer reading at the time.
