You'll have to replace the turn signal cam. I'll look for an image and directions and upload them.

approximately one minute after positive battery cable is disconnected.
Servicing air bag system before one minute may cause accidental air
bag deployment and possible personal injury.
CAUTION: When battery is disconnected, vehicle computer and memory systems
may lose memory data. Driveability problems may exist until computer
systems have completed a relearn cycle. See COMPUTER RELEARN
PROCEDURES in GENERAL INFORMATION before DISCONNECTING
BATTERY.

system. Unintentional air bag module deployment and personal injury
may result.
For Component Replacement
Record pre-set radio frequencies for reprogramming (if equipped). Disconnect negative battery cable.
Wait at least one minute for back-up power supply to deplete stored energy.
For Diagnosis & Testing
