Did the airbags go off too or are you just replacing a broken sensor?

There are no external impact sensors in a 2003 Ranger. They are internal to the Restraints Control Module which is bolted to the transmission tunnel below the center of the instrument panel.

No, the impact sensors and safing sensor are inside the module for 2003. None external.

I am doing same thing to a '99. Are there external ones for that year or just the internal ones in rcm? Is that on top of transmission hump, under cup holders?
