Airbag code

I need some help with an airbag code on my 95 ranger. I get a 4-2 and can not find any info on cods for my year. I have seen the mustang one but have been told they are not the same.
Thanks for the help

Driver Side Crash Sensor Mounting Failure

Normal Operation
The driver side crash sensor monitors the severity of a crash event. If the crash event is severe enough, the sensor will signal the restraints control module (RCM) to deploy the driver side air bag.

The RCM monitors the two-wire current loop to the driver side crash sensor for a signal that is out of the expected range. If the RCM detects a signal from the driver side crash sensor, indicating a sensor mounting failure, it will store diagnostic trouble code (DTC) B2441 and flash a lamp fault code (LFC) 42 (or a higher priority code if one exists) on the air bag indicator.

Possible Causes

A driver side crash sensor mounting failure fault can be caused by:

* damaged driver side crash sensor.
* corrosion or damage at the sensor mounting surface.

Thank you, I guess I have to change my search engine from yahoo to google. My truck has a lot of rust on the frame and core support. Thanks again

Not to bring back the dead but I still have this code and have replaced the sensor. I cleaned the mounting surface and put new unit on but still have the stupid light....4-2. I cleaned and lubed the plug under my seat too just for kicks. Is there a way to test the rcm? Or the plug to the sensor? I am going crazy trying to figure this out.
Thanks for any help.

Did you reset the codes.

Disconnect your battery for about 10-20 mins and turn on headlights to let all the power discharge out of the system and then see if you still have the light.
