air bag light flashing

92 mustang, ex 4cyl car. Now has a 302 with blowthrough carb and turbo. My airbag light on the dash is constantly flashing. Is this just because there is no computer on board, or is this an indication of a problem with the airbag system.


For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

I'll will double check power to the control module. Light blinks steadily 3-4 times per second, it never quits blinking.

5 flashes per second, key on, or running.

Appearantly the crash sensors and harness were stripped when the engine and transmission were pulled. I'll try to find a used harness but most likely purchase new sensors.

Nope, if the airbag light hadn't been flashing I wouldn't have looked. I do feel silly for starting an electrical diagnosis thread when the culprit turned out to be major components missing.
