The sensor arrangement varies by year and model. For 99 Ranger, there are no external sensors; all are internal to the Restraints Control Module.

If the airbags were deployed, it will probably need to be replaced. If not, then you should be able to continue to use it. IIRC, the Light Fault Code for a full event data recorder in the RCM is 1-9.

Plug in your bags and count the codes, Thatwill tell you if you need to replce the module. I can tell you that if the bags deployed with that module, you need a new one...

So if I plug in the bag, its not just going to explode when I hook the battery back up?

Honestly, there is no damage on the truck significant enough to have caused the airbag to deploy... but I don't know any other reason why someone would have removed the airbag section out of the steering wheel.

I'll see what codes I come up with, and post them back on here, hopefully tomorrow.

Thanks, you guys are a big help!

It might be helpful to find a thread that isn't over 5 years old. Just a suggestion. You could buy a repair manual for your truck also.

It should be on the transmission hump under the cup holders. Read through that thread.
