Airbag light flashing 4 pause 3. What does this mean?

Mercury Grand Marq. 2005

Title says it. I assume its some sort of error code. I've searched but all I can find is error codes for Grand Marq. 1993 and 43 isn't listed.

Are you sure it's not 34? http://www.airbagsolutions.com/docs/codes/f/a.pdf

You're correct it is 3-4. Sorry about that. Anyone have any idea what could cause this. The shop wants $130 to diagnose the problem plus the cost to fix it. If it just a loose wire or something stupid like that I would like to look into it myself but don't know where to start.

3-4- Restraint System- Safety Belt Pretensioner Fault (Passenger Open/High Resistance Fault)

It relates to the RF passenger seat belt retractor assembly, which has a pretensioner on it (an air bag charge) that fires in an accident to cinch the seat belt into the lock position. The diagnosis requires the factory scan tool and some other special tools to diagnose.

There is a code 4-3 by the way.
4-3- Restraint System- Impact Sensor Fault (Driver Side Communication Fault)

Where did you find that? I searched all of my Ford manuals and none came up with it.

I've looked into buying access to AD but seems to be pay per vehicle only.
