Default Problems with fuel gauge marking below minimum, airbag light flashing

Recently I took my Mustang 95 GT to a mechanics to fix the odometer gears... When came back, the fuel gauge wasn't working any more and the airbag light started to flash (sometimes stops, then starts again).

I disassembled the gauge cluster, and noticed that it has a small removable circuit board, the 121ohm resistor on the board was getting burning hot when the key was on, anyone has any guesses?

The pictures below are from the circuito board, the Brown-red-brown resistor is the one getting hot

Thanks!!
