AIR BAG RESTRAINT SYSTEM (F150 & F250 LD)
1997 ACCESSORIES/SAFETY EQUIPMENT Ford Motor Co. - Air Bag Restraint System
IDENTIFICATION
Vehicle is equipped with driver-side air bag which is identified by a letter "L" in fourth position of Vehicle
Identification Number (VIN). VIN is located on top of instrument panel, near lower left corner of windshield.
VIN is also stamped on Vehicle Certification (VC) label, mounted on left front door pillar.
The words Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) are embossed on steering wheel center hub. A label denoting
that vehicle is equipped with air bag is affixed to driver-side sun visor.
DESCRIPTION & OPERATION
The Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) is designed to provide increased accident protection for driver and
passenger by deploying air bags in a front-end collision. The air bags, stored in center of steering wheel and in
instrument panel above glove box, deploy in about 40 milliseconds after impact sensors close. SRS is designed
to be used with 3-point safety belts.
During a front-end collision of sufficient force, both a front impact sensor and a safing sensor will activate
simultaneously to inflate air bag. When a front impact sensor and safing sensor are closed at same time,
electrical current will flow, igniting the driver-side and passenger-side air bag module.
SRS includes following components: diagnostic monitor, driver-side air bag module, passenger-side air bag
module and deactivation switch, SRS readiness light (AIR BAG warning light), front impact sensor and safing
sensor, ignitor assemblies (in air bag modules), clockspring and associated wiring harnesses. See
Fig. 1

WARNING: To avoid injury from accidental air bag deployment, read and carefully
follow all WARNINGS and SERVICE PRECAUTIONS .
