98 Ranger - Airbag switch questions
Okay I've scoured the site and I have a question. My 98 Ranger has just developed an issue where when I start my truck the airbag light comes on and blinks the 25 code. So someone said it was the switch and I should replace it. So I went to the junkyard and found a switch from a 2001.
I put the switch in and there are no airbag lights. However this switch works differently than my old one.
My old one you would insert your key and turn it to the off position and it would lock in there. The new one doesn't lock into the off position. Actually at the junk yard I tried a bunch of Ranger's and they didn't lock into the off position.
I called the dealer and they stated that from 98-2003 the switches are universal. They tested the one they had there and the switch didn't lock to the off position.
I'm stumped. Please help!!!!
