Exclamation Belt-Minder / SRS Issue

The truck was taken in to the dealer for a new long block. Head cracked @ 51k. Cast block, aluminum heads.

Once I got home I took off my belt and noticed the minder and Safety Belt Warning Light on the dash did not illuminate. I always start the truck unbuckled (I know if I start it buckled it deactivates it for that run).

The light illuminates when the ignition is ON like normal. Then turns off. When it stays solid for 1-2 minutes from start up if I bluckle/unbuckle it works without audible, till it times out after 1-2 minutes.

I followed the manual to "Deactivating/Activating The Belt Minder Feature"

First try it told me that I just deactivated based on the flashes.
Then I reset and do it again and it tells me I activated it.

Still not working.

Anything the dealer did when swapping the long block? Even though I doubt it.

But I know 100% the system was in working order prior to Ford taking possession of the truck.

Also the parking brake light does not illuminate when it is applied. It illuminates when starting the truck.

I don't want to have to drive all the way there 80 miles round trip, if there is something I could do to correct it would be appreciated greatly.
