Difficult to troubleshoot airbag light does not come on when

Customer Question

Difficult to troubleshoot airbag light does not come on when key is turned on, unless I disconnect the battery for 15 minutes, then when I turn the key it only comes on the first time I start it. It is a 2004 F150 new body style 4.6 Liter auto 2wd.
JA: Is anything interfering with the seatbelt latch?
Customer: No it seems the seatbelt buckles fine.
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Well I had the 5 chimes 5 times error first so I replaced the front impact sensor.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: not that I can think of right now.

Hello, when you start the vehicle the air bag light should illuminate for 7 seconds and then go out. If the air bag light goes out if it doesn't come back it detects no fault. Do you have a scan tool that can test for airbag codes?
