airbag diagnostics

My 17 year old son got a 1995 Taurus SE, it's got just over 100 000 miles.
Not too bad of shape, good on fuel (it seems), but it has an airbag diagnostic up.
5 buzzes (not the same as a door chime) and what looks to be a code 52 on the diagnostic light.

any advice?

from what I read, it could simply be a airbag power issue from when the battery went dead. Vehicle has a new battery now.

Ive seen conflicting info on how i can attempt to reset this trouble code.
Has anyone done such before?
I don't see how disconnecting the battery for a short while will work, as that was probably what caused it in the first place..

I just checked this morning, I either missed read the code 52-or changed. It seems to be showing a code 23 this morning .
Does anybody know what it could 23 on a 1995 Taurus is?

May use the 2 forum search features and/or google. I dunno. There's a few airbag code threads at the bottom of the forum topic finder, but I didn't see #23. May read the top thread.

I had to wait till I got to a pc to do some decent searching.
It looks like the Safing Sensor is located near/at the drivers side kick panel - makes sense as I was recently repairing the drivers door weatherstrip - which required removal of that kick panel.

Hopefully I didn't turn the mounting screw into the conductors when I put it back on.

EDit:

a bit of snooping, pointed me towards this:

Ford Technical Documents - www.fordmods.com



I'm not sure if it applies to my '95 or not - but if it does, it isn't the safing sensor but rather a memory clear circuit failure (code 23, dtc b1923)



In the link is a picture of a connector with many points on it - the instructions in the link state to ground a specific pin in the connector. where is this connector located?

I don't think that is correct for your 95, check out the SRS code listing and diagram from the 1993 service manual I posted here: https://www.taurusclub.com/forum/82-m...ml#post3194265

Thanks much - I'm honestly hoping that if this is the case, it's a sensor and not a wiring issue.
I'm much too old to hang upside down and try to trance conductors in an automotive environment.
It may be cost effective for me to have the stealership look at it rather than me risking an accidental deployment (That'd be my luck).
