Check for a defective driver side pretensioner.

Thank you. What next?

Check to make sure pretensioner has not a poor connection issue. Need to check ohms resistance of pretensoner to see if out of spec.

Is the pretensioner part of the seat belt system?

Lots of troubles with these cars. It is in the seat belt. Not uncommon for both sides going bad about the same time.

Thanks for all your help. I tried to get into your estimator section. Need cost estimate parts and labor for driver side seat belt pretensioner.

The seat belt retrator side is the part that you will probaly need. It is a dealer item that can only purchaced new from a Ford dealer.
