Airbag Code 51

Hey guys, I have a 2003 Ford Explorer Sport with a manual transmission and 100,000 miles on it.

I recently started getting an intermittent airbag code 51 combined with the seat belt light flashing and chiming.

It doesn't do it all the time. Maybe every 1 out of 5 times that I start and drive the car.

Any help that would point me in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
