B2296 d 44 Restraint System - Impact Sensor Fault (Driver Side Front Row Impact Sensor Circuit Fault) Go To Pinpoint Test V .
Pinpoint Test V: LFC 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 and 47/DTC B2296 - Restraint System - Impact Sensor Fault
Normal Operation
The restraints control module (RCM) checks all of the impact sensor circuits for faults. If the RCM detects one of the following faults on any of the impact sensor circuits, it will store diagnostic trouble code (DTC) B2296 in memory and flash, depending on the fault, either lamp fault code (LFC) 42, 43, 44, 45, 46 or 47 (or higher priority code if one exists) on the air bag indicator.
Fault Conditions
The RCM monitors for the following fault conditions:
  • Low resistance
  • Circuit open
  • Circuit short to voltage
  • Circuit short to ground
  • Internal faults
  • Communication faults
Possible Causes
A impact sensor status fault can be caused by:
  • damaged wiring, terminals or connectors.
  • a faulty impact sensor.
  • incorrect sensor mounting.
  • RCM is faulted.
  • There are 72 steps involved in the diagnostic testing procedure for this DTC. Your best bet mite be to just replace the sensor an see if that fixes the problem, if not ?

Where is the sensor for the airbag on a yukon 2005 located at on the truck

Front Airbag sensors are located on the radiator support beam behind the bumper. In this video, you can see them. You don't need to remove the bumper - they just have it off to let you see where they are. Should be able to see them if you climb under the truck.

My 2004 f 150 airbags light stays solid for a couple of seconds when I turn the truck on then flashes 4 times then its off then it flashes 2 times then 4 then 2 what's the problem

A LFC ( light Flash Code ) 42 is the front impact severity sensor on a 2004 New Body Style ( should not get this LFC on a 2004 Heritage or Lightning ).

The Front impact severity sensor is located on the center radiator support, open the hood and you will find it next to the ambient air temperature sensor.

The part number is 6L3Z-14B004-AA

You might find cleaning the connector might work, but usually it is a case of the front impact severity sensor is corroded inside the sensor itself, and needs to be replaced.
