Airbag light on due to high resistance in connectors.
This problem has been with me for several years. I brought it in to my local dealer and was told that the fix was to replace the harness in the drivers seat, at a cost of between $600 and $800. I decided to live with it having grown up in the 50s when we had no seat belts at all.
I will talk to my Ford dealer and find out what this type of repair would cost. Might be worth the effort.
resistance in connectors under driver and passenger seat (yellow) will trip codes for pretensioner circuit high. make sure pins are clean and tight and reconnect,clear code,retest.
