Question 1998 Cobra AirBag Code 52 - HELP

Does anyone have any info on an airbag code 52 for a 1998 Cobra?

I pulled and reseated a 10A fuse (fuse 15?) on the drivers side fuse panel while troubleshooting the A/C system. I did not have the code 52 until I did this. I have tried disconnecting the battery negative and positive leads for 5 minutes in the hopes of clearing the code. It came right back after I reconnected the battery and started the car.

Is there any way to reset the airbag diagnostic monitor?

Will the code clear on it's own if there is really no fault?

Nevermind, I found the answer here:

It was for a 1995 Mustang GT, but it worked on my 98 just fine.
------------------------
Okay, here's how to clear the code:

1. Follow the diagnostic procedures to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator.
2. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.
3. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six +/-two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.
4. Locate the Diagnostic Service Connector located underneath the glove compartment containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).
5. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground.
6. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).
7. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK).
