Need a new pretensioner (seat belt clip thing)

I've been working out my problems with my air bag codes... slowly. I've replaced my RCM, fixed my passenger side air bag, now its giving me a 4-6, which means a problem with the passenger pretensiononer. I've unplugged it, and plugged it back in, also I've cleaned the contacts, but neither of those has worked. I'm to the point where I think the only thing I can do is get another pretensioner and try that.

If there's anybody on here that has the driver and/or passenger side pretensioners and would like to get rid of them, send me a private message. Or, if anybody can direct me to a website where I can find these, let me know. My searches haven't found me anything.

By pretensioner, do you mean the connection directly under the seat? If so -- I am having the same problems, code keeps popping up for the 4-7 and no matter how often I unplug it and put it back together, it just keeps popping back. Might like to see if anyone has any otehr viable fixes otehr then some di-electric and trying to get a clean connection.

Nothing more annoying then an orange blinking light in the darn dash *grr*

Actually, I mean the whole part... that plug, the wiring, and also the part the seatbelt plugs into.

I can't pass NJ inspection with the light blinking. Even if I take the light out, it doesn't matter, because the inspection station still reads it through the damn OBD port. I can't clear the code with my tuner either.

Winks.....my little bro just swapped out his vinyl bench out of his XL in favor of an edge 60/40 in his 01 ranger. I'll see what he's planning on doing with those old seats...and possibly rip some parts off it.

Winks...were you the one that needed the bulb holders for the ohc??
