PASSENGER AIR BAG DISABLED (PAD) LAMP
INTERMITTENTLY ON WHILE DRIVING - DTC C1414
RETRIEVED DURING OCS DIAGNOSIS/REPAIR

FORD:
2005 Escape Hybrid, Escape

MERCURY:
2005 Mariner

ISSUE
Some 2005 Escape/Escape Hybrid and Mariner vehicles may exhibit the passenger air bag disabled (PAD) lamp intermittently on while driving with the passenger seat occupied, or diagnostic trouble code (DTC) C1414.

ACTION
Revised occupant classification system (OCS) Service Kits are available for vehicles built at Kansas City Assembly Plant from Job 1 to 2/2/2005, and for vehicles built at Ohio Assembly Plant from Job 1 to 2/8/2005. Install a revised OCS Service Kit to correct the intermittent PAD lamp. It is necessary to re-zero the OCS system after components are replaced. Refer to Workshop Manual Section 501-20B for this procedure.

For DTC C1414, ensure the correct components are installed. Refer to the Service Procedure for descriptions of PAD lamp operation and DTC C1414 origination. Refer to the TSB charts for Service Kit selection and/or correct component verification.

SERVICE PROCEDURE


NOTE
THE 11TH DIGIT OF THE VIN CAN BE USED TO IDENTIFY THE ASSEMBLY PLANT (KANSAS CITY = K, OHIO = D).

NOTE
REFER TO SECTION 501-20B OF THE WORKSHOP MANUAL FOR COMPLETE DETAILS OF SYSTEM OPERATION.

PAD LAMP OPERATION:
Intermittent illumination of the PAD lamp typically occurs with passengers weighing approximately 100 pounds (45 KG). If the passenger shifts their weight, the occupant classification system (OCS) may determine that the seat is occupied by a child. The PAD lamp (located in the center bezel beneath the radio) is not a system malfunction indicator, and will not generate DTCs. It is only a system status light and illuminates to indicate that the passenger air bag is deactivated.

DTC C1414:
Illumination of the supplemental restraint system (SRS) indicator lamp in the instrument cluster, with DTC C1414 (Incorrect Vehicle ID), will only occur if an incompatible OCS service part is installed during a repair. There are three different levels of production and service parts used in the 2005 model year, based on the build date of the vehicle. The components of the three systems are not interchangeable. Code C1414 indicates that an OCS component or the RCM are not matched to each other or to the vehicle's build date. To resolve, ensure correct components are installed.
