Airbag code #42 on 94 Ford Taurus

I have 1994 Ford Taurus GL. Recently, it started flashing code 42
continuously once the car starts. Around the same time, the car
started shaking at high speed because of a broken spring around the
front strut. So I was wondering if maybe the shaking could have caused
the warning light, or if it's really is a problem with the connection
to the sensor.

I disconnected the battery for an hour to see if that reset the code in
case it was just in there from the car shaking so much, but the code
still comes up as soon as the car is started.
As for the codes, says it means "Primary Crash Sensor #2
Feed/Return Circuit - Open".

I've read the bits and pieces that I could find on the internet about
working on the airbag system and such, but have been unable to find
some answers.

Here are my questions-

Had the front end fixed, so now the car doesn't shake.
Will a diagnostic module automatically reset when the problem is fixed,
or could it be a stored code that I'm seeing?

If it doesn't automatically reset, how do I reset it?

Is the "Primary Crash Sensor #2" actually the 2 sensors behind the
front turn signals, or is it just one sensor? If so, where is it?

Any ideas on diagnosing this?
