Both air bag lights have stayed lighted four months apart. Replacement was a complete (using Ford motor CO parts) unit on driver-side in may 2014. Now(sept 9,2014) the passenger side unit needs replacement at a cost of $700. 00 for each side. The state of virginia inspection process requires replacement for the vehicle to pass. I'm told the air bag is in-operative when the light is on this a safety issue.

My 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis airbag light is on. Dealership claims the airbags will not deploy due to a malfunctioning seatbelt pretensioner. Repair/replacement will cost $1800 to do both passenger and driver. Car only has 29,250 miles on it. I have found where this seems to be an ongoing problem with this model. Also, saw where this issue has caused airbags not to deploy in a collision. Some have reported the problem reoccurring after repair. This is a bad design by Mercury and a huge safety concern that should have been issued a recall!.

Started car to go to work idling in drive way and I got an air bag light and alarm going off, turned car off and restarted and same thing. Was scared to drive until I talked to mechanic at local dealership. He said the problem is in the seat belt assembly and would have to be replaced. Parts about 260 dollars plus labor probably anothe 200 dollars. Researching air bag light issues for Grand Marquis for fixes for my problem I discovered theere are several other owners of same model with same issue. Was wondering if others has reported and if so why has there not been a recall. I love my car otherwise and poor single father raising my children on my own and cannot afford these repairs plus driving a car that the air bags possible wont work on lord forbid we were in an accident.

The seat belt warning air bag light came on and won't go off. It happen back in Aug 2011 at 40,598 miles now two years later at 53,631 same probelm again. I filed a complaint then and now once again , when are you people going to make Ford fix these cars right. If you look at all the complaints filed concerning the seat belt probelm it would seem to me that you are doing absoulety nothing except letting these car manufactures give us consumer a bunch of bs and charge us and arm and leg to fix some thing that shouldn't be failing that soon. I mean come on in 13,000 miles and it fails again. It will cost me another $450. 00 to fix the same probelm and if I don't the air bag system will not work so where does that leave me???.

Driving down the highway, seat belt on, when all of a sudden the seat belt unlatches itself. This has happened over and over. In the meantime, I went on the internet to see if there had been any recalls of the Grand Marquis. Sure enough, there is one on the seat belt. I called Ford right away, went in and set up an appointment. Ford claims there is no recall on my vehicle. It is a 2001, and I just recently bought it from a family member. Just prior to all of this happening, I was hit while waiting at a red light in my small Honda. Ironically, if it wasn't for the fact that my son and I had on seat belts, we would have been seriously injured. Now, I'm depending on the Grand Marquis to get around. Imagine how I feel knowing that there is a defective seat belt around me that isn't secure.

The drivers side seat belt failed to latch, the buckle would not go into the receiver. We took it to lawrence hall Lincoln Mercury dealership where we purchased the car new. The tech. Showed us how to use a screwdriver to latch and unlatch the belt. He order the part, we took the car to the dealership and the discovered it was the wrong part. They reordered the part and discovered it was still the wrong part. They want us to keep using the screwdriver. I feel this is unsafe and if this is a problem then the dept. Should know about it. We are required to wear the belts then if the break it should not take 2 weeks to fix.
