Air Bag Code 32

I have a '94 Lightning. My Airbag light keeps flashing a 32 code. Can anyone tell me what this code means and if it's something that can be fixed without taking my truck to a dealship? Greatly appreciate any help that can be provided.

That sounds like your clock spring assy. in your steering wheel. Part costs around$90 from Ford and you need to pull the steering wheel to replace it. - Brian

Thanks for your response. Have you (or anyone) done this before? If so, what has to be done to disable the airbag so it won't deploy when removing the steering wheel? Anyone know?

thanks again

I have asked the dealer the same question many times but never get a straight anwser. So I just stopped worring about it. Been flashing for 5-6 years...LOL I hate seeing it flash but don't feel like paying ford to go around looking.

Good luck

Special thanks to gasguzzler and 91steeda for pointing me in the right direction. Also thanks to Ghost (Jason W.) for the excellent step-by-step instructions on how to replace the clock spring.

I was just about ready to breakdown and take the truck to Ford and let them take half my paycheck for this week, but thanks to this great forum full of knowledgable folks like yourselves, it looks like a $100.00 and a few hours of my time will take care of this annoying problem.
