Air Bag Code 27

My airbag light just started blinking a code 27 then staying on constant every time I drive it. At the same time my passenger airbag light has quit working. I found the info in parantheses that follows and was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. The guy that had this posted had an F-150 and as noted below posted his fix. Thanks for any help! .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .............................................(Possible causes: short to battery on the PAD switch warning > light circuit caused by a short to battery on circuit 29, damaged > or inoperative PAD switch, or damaged or inoperative RCM. I checked the shut off switch and the light after seeing that the error seemed to point there. The switch was just a reed switch with the key rotating a magnet above it. It was good. The bulb was blown though. It was not shorted, just blown open. Apparently the fault code indicates an open as well. I put an LED in, it shouldn't give me any more trouble.)

Fixed

AS a follow up since I did not get any responses I wanted to let anyone know that may ever have this issue that it was a bad light bulb. For my F-250 you need to pop off the front of the dash to access the 3 screws that hold the airbag switch control. Once you unplug it and have it out you can remove the top of the switch box and just lift out the circuit board that the light is soldered to. I de-soldered the factory bulb from the board and went to Radio Shack and bought a 2-pack of 12V red bulbs and resoldered one on the board and re-installed the switch. The light works once again and no more warning light flashing at the instrument cluster. A $2 fix versus Ford who wanted $100+ for the part alone plus labor . Hope this helps out for anyone else.......

Thanks for posting this fleastang!

I did a google on this for a while and your post was the only solid hit I could find directly relating to Powerstrokes. I hit my local Radio Shack and a $1.40 12v LED fixed my code 27 blinking airbag light as well!
