warning chime module

Can somebody please show me an I/O diagram of a 98 ranger chime module?"I need a
diagram or pin-out in effort to silence this annoying little bugger.
I replaced front sheet metal on a wreck I bought,but both air bagswere blown and I am so tired of the five tone reminder.
I hope to provide the chime module with whatever input that it needs to shut off the air bag
warning without replacing the air bags.
Any help will be appreciated.

Replace the airbag bulb in the cluster and it will quit.

I have replaced the air bag warning light in the instrument cluster and still it chimes.The
same 5 times 5 tune as always.
I really need a diagram of the input to the chime module so that I can provide whatever input to the appropriate pin that is required to make it shut up.
If I unplug the module,I will lose some of it"s more desirable functions,such as dome light and speedometer.
I realise that the proper fix would be to replace the blown airbags.NOT GONNA HAPPEN!
I also beleive that with a little technical info ,I can make the chime module" see" that the
bags are OK.
The blown air bags won"t help me in a crash,but to silence that noise would be
wonderful when I don"t crash.

The Generic Electronic Module in the 98 Ranger performs several control and timing operatons in addition to its function as chime and tone generator. The 98 Ranger EVTM wiring manual says that the wire between the ECS restraints module and the GEM is tan/yellow.
