Default Air Bag light code 4-7

the airbag light came on in my 2001 ranger XLT 4x4, it flashes the code 4-7, i was wondering if anyone knows what is means or if they know where i can find out instead? This also happened on my 97 ranger and i took it to the dealership and paid $80 for them to tell me i needed a $500 dollar airbag module, i never got it because it was a junker

That is the code for incorrect resistance on the seatbelt pretensioner circuit (code 46 driver side, code 47 passenger side). It is a common problem and is usually caused by a poor connection under the seat. Turn off the ignition, open the connector, clean the pins and reassemble. Applying dielectric grease to the pins should make the repair last longer. In rare cases, the connector might need to be replaced.

It is a good idea to avoid storing things under the seats because contact with the connectors can sometimes trigger the problem.

this is true. i got the code 46 for drivers because i installed mountaineer bucket seats. then i found out i needed to use the pretensioners from my original seats; so i took the pretensioners ( seatbelt) fro the old seta and put them on the new seats. WALLA...............
