Yet another airbag question
Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death on here. I read through a few dozen threads on this, and I've been working with the description at veryuseful.com. My pain started as I was fixing some old driving light wiring on my son's 91 Mustang GT. Apparently, I touched something which then triggered a blinking 5 and a blinking 10 code on the airbag light. It finally stayed with the blinking 10 code, which I now know means the airbag monitor detected a short in the sensor wiring and it blew the thermal fuse open. I found a very informative post online about opening up the module and replacing the thermal fuse. So I figured I'd give it a try to make sure I had fixed the original problem (I found a very sketchy splice in the passenger side airbag sensor (near where I was working) which I assume started this whole mess. After a LOT of struggling, I managed to get the blue airbag monitor module from behind the climate control panel. Sure enough, the thermal fuse was open. As a temporary diagnostic measure, I soldered a wire across the open thermal fuse. The 15 ohm heater resistor measured exactly 15 ohms so I left it alone.
So I reconnected the blue box and powered up the car. No more blinking 10 code, but now I have a blinking 4 code, which should be an open circuit on the safing sensor. I suspect I might have moved a wire and caused an open. So here's my problem: In the post from veryuseful.com, it states that the safing sensor is "integral with the airbag diagnostic monitor". But I've had the module open and there is no safing sensor inside. I do see 2 connectors clipped to the blue box mounting bracket, could they be the safing sensor? Or could it be in the B pillar, as it states elsewhere? I was pretty careful working on the module so I don't think I hurt it. And it seems to be working since it's blinking out a code.
FWIW I found a "new" airbag monitor module on ebay, and it should be in Friday. I'm just afraid to plug it in until I have the wiring straightened out.
Anybody know where the "Safing Sensor" is located?
