Hello, the resistance value of the passenger side seat belt pretensioner is flagging this fault as you seem to already know. If the wiring is secure and plugged in properly the pretensioner has most likely failed. But there is the possibility of an issue with the Restraint control module itself. Without the use of a scan tool it is hard to monitor and test the circuit, the pretensioners are a common fault, the choice is your to gamble and replace the pretensioner and retest or to have the pinpoint test for this code run by a shop or dealer with the proper diagnostic equipment.
