If that doesnt work, use electrical tape over the light.

just searched yahoo and at least for 95, a 33 code is "Pin 7 Not Grounded at Diagnostic Monitor". now, not all codes are the same from year to year, but i can't find anything specific right now for 99.

i don't recall any specific fuse that controls just the airbag, but i'm sure there is. by disabling any part of the srs system, the light will be on. removing the bulb from the cluster causes a series of audible beeps.

Mine did the same thing, it stopped after the WD40 in the connectors under the seat. Have you tried that?

27 is the passenger side airbag switch light is burnt out or unhooked. there are pretty cheap ways to fix it. need to search around on here or the other ranger forums. it's discussed quite a bit, and i think there may be a write up on it.
