The air bag diagnostic monitor is to the right of the glove box behind the dash. It monitors and compares pins 11, GY/O, and 12, P/W with charging system voltage. If system voltage is >9 and voltage on on pin 11 or 12 is <2, the ABDM internal fuse will blow. The short to ground could be a wire, an airbag, clockspring or another component in the restraint system. After the short is repaired, you will need to replace the ABDM. Do not use a logic probe or test light to check the circuits. Depower the system before any testing. I recommend you take it to a Ford or Lincoln dealer.
