Default 94 F150 fried Airbag Module

I have a 1994 F150, 4.9, 2WD that has a burnt out Airbag Module (PM-F2VF-14B056-AD) that is causing a short in my PSOM. I would replace the module if I could find one. Parts stores tell me that it is a dealer item. The dealer says that Ford don't make them anymore. Junkyards don't sell them because it is a safety item.
So here is a 3 part question...
1) Does anybody know where I might be able to pick one up online?
2) Does anybody have a schematic of the module so I could track down the exact component and fix it myself?
3) Or, if worse comes to worse, how to properly disable the whole airbag system with the module gone?

I really hate to junk the vehicle for something that is so minor.

Thanks for your help...
Bob

If the module is burnt out then the system is disabled.

The airbag module is for the diagnostics, it doesn't deploy the airbag, so the system is still armed. Just unhook the battery for 15 min or so (Ford says 1 minute but I don't really trust that) and you can safely unhook the air bag at the steering column.

Obviously the airbag light is on, and when it's on the system is disabled.

The only fuses for the air bag system are fuse 5 and 18, which was his original problem cause #18 kept blowing up on him lol.

Sensors are hard wired to the air bag, the light could stay on or not come on at all like when starting up meaning a fault. But the sensors also have a signal a signal wire to the module.

Thank you to all. I will be unhooking the airbag from the steering column, then re-wrapping the dash wiring harness. Time to get the dash out of my spare room and back into the truck, although I kind of do like all the leg room the truck has without it.

My airbag light is blinking in my 94. Should I follow suit and remove my bag as well?

If its blinking, you can pull airbag codes to see whats up. That means the module is working and has found a fault in the system.

You can count the flashes to find out the code.

For example code 32 is 3 flashes then a one second pause then 2 more flashes and a 3 second pause, and codes will repeat.
