B2292 applies to the buckle-side pretensioner. The retractor pretensioners are called load limiting retractors and if at fault will trip a B1085. The codes are generic (they cover the entire circuit including wire problems, module problems, etc.) If you want specifics on the code, i.e., short, open, etc., then you need to retrieve the bit mapped codes with the IDS scanner. The bit mapped codes look like this: B2292_29, B2292_30, etc.
B2292_EO is the overall system code and all the IDS is capable of reading. When the restraints control module (RCM) detects a system fault, it will flash a coded sequence which is called a LFC on the air bag warning indicator located in the instrument cluster module. The code is 2 digits. The first digit is flashed with a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 2-second pause before the second digit is flashed, which also has a 0.5-second interval between pulses. There is a 5-second pause between each display of an LFC.
Each LFC is flashed 3 times after which the air bag indictor will remain lit for the remainder of the key-on cycle (except for DTC B2792 [cross link between firing loops] which only flashes one LFC). If there are multiple LFCs, each LFC will flash in order of priority.
Ahh... I did not know we were working on a Escape, all I saw on my screen was "2008 Airbag code B2292-E0 pulled using IDS", so I went by what most Fords that MY have. My bad.
For the Escape, the fault PIDs should be something like 2292_2_OD and 2292_2_CM, etc. If you don't know how to get those codes, then I'm afraid I can't help you. I'll opt out so others may try. Please don't reply until another expert responds or the site will revert you request back to me.
