Air bag recall? Please refresh my memory.

I¹m just going thru the same problem with a friend¹s 200-20V, AB light stays

First, local dealer will not have access to old, ¹97 AoA recall records
without special digging and will initially only come up with ³no current
outstanding recalls on your car² but he can not tell you with certainty that
the recall has or not been done on your car.

You must give your Service Manager the recall code, ³KF² and the recall date
³10/06/1997³ along with your VIN number and demand that he dig into AoA
records for the answer. Did so for me, car had been AB updated in Œ97.
Here's one source of information about 200 recalls:
See the second item. (Thanks, Kneale Brownson)

So, as yet I still don¹t have an answer to the always on AB warning light.

Good luck, Bernie
