Airbag Light Code 52

I have the classic battery died replaced it and started getting the airbag light blinking...
5 - 2 code 52. I have read several (many) cures... but none have work for me.
One said to take the right kick panel out, and there would be a two pin plug to the right of the airbag computer.

Could not find it anywhere. I attached a picture.
I then found that it could be cleared from Data Link Connector with the proper reader. I just have the OBC reader.
Found this on the forum
EF airbag light, Code 52
From
EFGTHO Registered User

Go to the Data Link Connector next to the fuse panel....

find a piece of wire 100mm long (bare ends)
igniton to ACC
Top row ... 4th from left = Air Bag Clear pin
connect to
Bottom row... 3rd from left = Ground pin
having connected these two pins for a few seconds
(must have GOOD CONNECTION... not easy)
you will hear 5 quick BEEPS... then remove wire...
check for any new codes....
(PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE FIXED BEFORE CODE CAN BE CLEARED)
repeat above if necessary

I am not sure if I should be counting just the pins or the spaces? I attached a picture. ANyhow to eliminate the bottom connections I ran a ground wire to space :
Top row ... 4th from left = Air Bag Clear pin to ground = nothing
then counted just the pins Top row ... 4th from left = Air Bag Clear pin ran it to ground = nothing.

Airbag light continued to flash. It's driving me nuts. But this member TopGhia Just wait for 255 key cycles and it will self erase. :)
Hey I settle for that. OR



Maybe I am just not on the DLC airbag clear pin?

Re: Airbag Light Code 52

Have you tried taking it to Advanced Auto or AutoZone? They generally will loan a scanner that can clear the code. BTW, which year is it?

Re: Airbag Light Code 52

Howdy,
It's a 96 Ford Ranger 3.0 5 speed. Would that I could I live in Clear Lake Ca. It's not like other Ca Counties, there is nothing here. A Napa and Kragen's or Oreilys thats it.

I also heard there was a plug MIGHT be to the left behind the glove-box. I pulled it out ... nada.
Thanks for the info... next time I go to the "big City" I can keep that in mind. I asked around, and I get "hey it's cost me a lot of money, I gota charge. I understand, If I could just find that wire, Circuit 631 (T/R) . I could ground it. But I ripped the seats out so I could get a look under the dash. No grey two pin plug with the (T/R) and ( BK).

THanks shawn
