My reset airbag module was returned to me today. After disconnecting the battery and mounting the module in its place, I plugged in the module. Hoping to see the airbag indicator turn off after starting the car, I was disappointed to see a flashing code. I see code 33. Anybody know what code 33 stands for?

The hood is out for paint. I'll update my other post with pictures of the finished product later this week.

Airbag DTC B1933 stands for "PASSENGER AIR BAG RESISTANCE HIGH". It's very likely that you have a loose connector below your passenger seat. Unplug and re-plug that connector back in and see if the light goes out.

Thanks for the response. I'll follow that advice when I get back to the car tomorrow. After air bag deployment, do the seatbelt pretensioners typically need replacement on the escapes as well?

I'm not sure about that. I think Ford recommends having the entire seatbelt assembly inspected for rips, tears, and proper operation and replacing parts "if necessary".

Just did a quick look at the seatbelt pretensioners. The driver's side pretensioner is in the deployed position, which makes sense as the driver's airbag had deployed. I'll call the local dealer and ask about the replacement part. I am kind of hard headed about trying repairs myself instead of stuffing a shop's pockets.

I bought and installed the new driver's side seatbelt pretensioner today. I was really counting on the airbag light to be off once I installed this part, and I wasn't disappointed. Can you picture both my arms raised into the air in triumph?
