Auto Airbag System Repair/air bag code


Hi I have a 2007 Lincoln MKZ with code b2296 -19 cm I replace front in pack sensor and look at the wires going to sensor at a lost can you help Thanks Jeff

Hello Jeff:

Your repair for the fault code was correct (front impact sensor fault).  Now you simply need to connect with someone with a scan tool to clear the code.  It will not clear by itself.  If the code reappears, then the problem is in the circuit between the sensor and the control unit and may even be inside the control unit itself.  Thus begins the technical diagnosis of wire harnesses and connectors or replacing the control.

I hope this helps
Good luck
