This may not be what you want to 'hear'.

I advise you to STOP!
The force of one of these airbags deploying, can easily break your neck, or remove parts of your head!

I know how that sounds coming from a stranger, but most of all I wish you to be SAFE!

MANY mechanics have made a fatal mistake when removing an airbag. All it takes is one small static spark, and the bag will deploy.
The bag deploys so fast, you won't Even have time to respond, and get out of the way!

The metal bracket of the air bag must be faced away from you, you should wear an ESD wrist strap, (And have it connected to a good ground), the bag must be held in a certain position when installing, and there is criteria to meet with the car, (Battery, connections for the air bag deploy switch, etc.), also.

Airbag's are already deployed? What about the new ones you will install? Please, leave this to a pro.
Thank you for letting me state this.

There is no sensor. The lamp module monitors bulbs. Check the connector on the rear bulb carrier. The ground wires like to corrode and melt the plastic.

Air bag warning light wont go out after changing airbag on steering whell

You didn't mention a year or model, go generally speaking an airbag light doesn't necessarily mean that the airbag is faulty. On some cars the airbag light also checks the seatbelts, the SRS control unit, associated wiring as well as the crash sensors. Also, on some luxury cars the light also detects steering wheel position sensor.

ABS, ASC, Handbrake, Airbag lights lit on dash, speedometer now working and fuel gauge playing silly beggars too

The abs,Asc,Handbrake all this is related to most likely a sensor that has gone out is not functioning properly. I would not drive this myself, especially with the air bag light on as if computer is throwing these signals out, you do not want to take the chance of air bag accidentally going off. Most this I am sure can be fixed at dealer. They will hook up there fancy equipment diagnostic machine, and reset the computer. Worst case is there might be a sensor that has to be replaced. This could be also a short in wire harness. Bottom line take it in and have them hook up to machine. This will pin point problem, because next step would be car could automatically shut down.

Where are the locations of the crash sensors on a 2008 Ford Ranger?

It is typically the job of the airbag module to sense when the vehicle is decelerating beyond the normal rate, and to deploy the airbags.
If the module has suffered excessive corrosion, then this would typically mean that there is water ingress into the interior compartment. Have you also checked the condition of the wiring connectors and looms?

Wow, that's expensive. $600 sure sounds like the air bag module itself. The air bag "sensors" located at the front near the radiator hold downs, there's 2 of them are around $45 each.
