Question about Jaguar X-Type
There is a Code 49 that, along with 51 and 52, cover Front Safety Belt Buckle and Seat Track Position Switches. As X Type belts are 51 and 52, there seems to be a good chance that 49 is the Seat Track Position Sensor on either the Driver's or Passenger's Seats (If it's one of your AWD models) or the Driver's Seat in the Diesel (Not one on the Passenger Seat in FWD cars!) They're rivetted to the seat track, so not so easy to get out! Might just need the connector cleaning up.

SOURCE: airbag lt on
Code 51 means: Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal Fuse ä Fuse Blown Due to Intermittent Short to Ground. It means that the computer controlling the airbags sensed a short in the wiring and disabled itself by tripping an internal fuse for safety reasons so that the air bag cannot be deployed accidentally. To repair the car, the wiring problem must be fixed, and then the airbag module replaced. Look for smashed wires, wires that are rubbing against bare metal or other wiring damage affecting the airbag circuits. This wiring is all under the plastic cowl around the steering column.
Please do rate the solution as FixYa and revert for further clarification.

Common fault on FORD
Usually due to a poor connection in the YELLOW PLASTIC CONNECTOR underneath the passenger seat.
Just push it together properly and it should clear the AirBag fault

46--- Driver Pretensioner Circuit Resistance High
That means the buckle in you driver side seat belt system has failed. It has an explosive device called a pretensioner in it which is designed to pull you into place microseconds before the airbag deploys. That component has failed and has deactivated the airbag system. You will need to replace the 'buckle pretensioner'.
But before you do, please get real familiar with the system you are working on before you cause additional damage, hurt yourself or deploy the bags accidentally.
