This is on the '86 560SEL, so I'm guessing the blink code tool will not work. In talking with Franz, the local Indie, he believes the belt tensioners popped when the air bag went off. Apparently the sensor did not, or could not differentiate what was happening when it took a direct hit from the driveshaft.
I'll try to look inside the "B" pillars soon.
Thanks for the advice. If the blink tool will work on an '86, I can build one.
