airbag codes in the 40's indicate a sensor problem. Usually it's a bad ground or a fualty sensopr. I would reccomend you disconnect the battery, remove the sensors (2 or 3) mounted on the radiator core support and clean the mounting area, removing any rust that has built up. then remount the sensors and reconnect everything. Older Ford airbag systems self diagnose and will clear fault code withoutr a scanner. If the probelem persists, you may need a new sensor
