Ignition running voltage problem


Asked by Sep 07, 2017 at 06:17 PM about the 1991 Ford Taurus GL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can airbag circuit fault cause ignition
voltage drain while car is running? Car runs
for about 20 min and dies then battery
voltage low and won't hardly
turn over. This problem began with
suspected charging problem but alternator
checked out good and has 14v at the battery
while running. HeadLights are bright . Car
will die when Negative battery cable is
removed. I then noticed airbag light
flashing. I also heard a clicking sound
coming from passenger side dashboard
area when key is first turned on. Could the
airbag circuit somehow be connected or is it
just a coincidence? just don't get it... HELP.
