Hi Andrew, got an 06...
Hi Andrew, got an 06 F150 throwing a B2296 code. So far I've replaced the pigtail with a new Ford connector, replaced RCM and Front crash sensor with used parts out of a similar truck and checked the PK-OG and VT-LG wires from crash sensor to RCM and they had continuity . This issue seems to happen while driving not while idling or running self test so I guess even if it tests good sitting still there could be an issue? Whats your suggestion

Nevermind i found it. Writing it out made me realize it was happening during driving so I did a wiggle test and found my ground bracket was losing ground for a split second over some bumps

Hello this is Andrew abs thank you for requesting me today. I’m sorry to hear your having this issue with your F150, I’m here to help. With this only happening while driving and not sitting still this intermittent issue is going to be hard to find. I would first start with a inspection of the used sensor you installed. This issue is very common and the sensor could have been damaged. Inspected the mounting and be sure the cross support is grounded and secured properly and not rusted at the connecting points. Then perform a wiggle test and see if the code sets while wiggling the harness (mainly near the sensor area and under hood area first) if this doesn’t find anything then we can do some more detailed testing of the harness to the restraint module.
