Air Bag problem - 1996 E150, 4.9L

I finally got the C6 transmission problem resolved, now for another. When starting the van the "Air Bag" light blinks 5 times, pauses, then blinks once. It keeps just repeating this pattern. I have no clue how to remedy this and I certainly do not want to set it off while dinking around with it. Is there a way to repair, disarm, or disconnect it? Thanks

I see now that this a code 51, which indicates that the internal thermal fuse in the air bag computer box is blown. Apparently, it requires a pc board level soldering repair, which I am not prepared to do. Is there a way to just disconnect the system altogether? thanks

Don't usually post from other forums, but I found this: 1996 f-150 how to disable airbag ??? [Archive] - The Garage Journal Board

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
