when did ford start using pretensioners in the f250 seat belts

so here is the questions...

when did ford start using pretensioners in the f250 seat belts???

Now one might think that is a weird question so I will explain why I am asking. I have a 2001 f250 with the airbag light on. It was in an accident about 8 years ago and the airbags were repalced and the module was replaced but the light indicated that it was the clockspring in the steering wheel. So I replaced that and now it is saying that it is the pretenstioner in the seat belt.

I opened up the side pillar where the seatbelt is located and it appears that there are wires coming off the seatbelt (the pretensioner) but the problem is that there is no wires to plug it into. I pulled up the whole floor on both sides and there does not appear to be any missing wires, cut wires, missing plugs.

My friend has a 1999 f250 (basically the same truck except for the year). I opened up his side pillar and his seatbelt has no wires, there are no wires to plug a seat belt tensioner into, and his trucks airbag system/lights all work as they should.

Do you think maybe someone replace the seat belts, air bag, and control module out of the wrong year and then when there was no where to plug in the prentensioner they just left it sitting there unplugged??? Or is there another option?
