If you expect people to read your posts and answer them you might want to write like an adult and use punctuation, capitalization, etc. That crap is just too big a pain to decipher.

That aside, No. You issue doesn't meet the criteria for the Lemon law.

Honestly, is an airbag light that big of a deal to complain about? If you were in a crash with that rig you'd survive without the bags assistance. But i can't imagine what spring would be attached to the airbag system in the steering wheel, unless they are unrelated an it just happened to unplug the bag and wheel controls.

Anger and frustration affect communication, I would be extremely upset, all I can say is... once fixed right, you will love it. Mine had a vacumn pump that would rattle. I jokingly asked them if it was the F-350 rattle, because the F-250 did not rattle. They changed out the vacumn pump, rattle remained. Conclusion, not having a vacumn brake system the system did not have a container that held vacumn...so F-350's would have a minor vacumn pump noise...slightly off post, point is these trucks are new, they have no history of certain parts failing, hence no stock. At this point, patience will pay off... these trucks are awesome, you won't be disappointed. 8,000 + miles, other than the vacumn pump education... no hint of problems...:thumb:

Work out a deal of having them fix it and get a few oil changes for the hassle. :thumb:

This guy just spent more for his 2011 than I did for my first home. I think it's a big friggen (BTW, I know friggen aint a word) deal. And to top it off it's a saftey issue. People die in semi crashes every day. You can get hurt in these trucks. Driver & passenger side air bags are wonderful devices & have saved many lives.

I think you're right, it's called "Right to Resend"

:hehe: Sorry about the problems dude. Just having to go back to the dealership twice already for ANY reason is enough to make you sick. I think Richc22a said it pretty well. Hang in there, document everything, might even get a case number started. There is an 800# in your warantee manual for issues just like this.
Good luck Sir.

Oh, and Harley1Rocker, :hehe: If I EVER get to Alafreakinbama I am going to look you up. What a stud!! I can turn this thing off now lol.

The Ford dealer gave you a Japanese car? They should have given you another Super Duty. Can't use a car to do what you can do in a truck. If you had to take a car, I wouldn't have left with anything less than a 2011 Stang GT.

If you guys had trouble reading my post, sorry about that. No spaces and no capitals makes reading tough. There's a difference between that and a typo. If you guys prefer reading one long continuous stream of words I'll leave you to have at it. Enjoy.:thumb:

That same bug has bitten me before.....................
haha!... lmao.. for real.. grab a manpon, come back, and help this guy out. that's what this forum is about anyway. I'm sure you'd be upset to if you bought a brand new $56k truck and wanted o show it off but couldn't cause it stays stays the dealership.. i'm sure he didn't plan on ever having to take it back exept for an oil change..

Probably talking about the "Clock Spring", not a literal spring. It provides the electrical connection so the air bag will work.
