ZK10 / Security battery clamp
Error will cause a warning light
Error is not currently present
Test conditions have been completed

I looked at the battery, which was recently replaced (2 mos again) and noticed that a cable is not connected on one end - the one which is electrically taped and zipped tied to the top of the battery, so I am assuming this is the airbag/seatbelt sensor and all I need to do it plug it in and then clear the code with INPA. If so I just need to find out where it plugs in. I will post a picture of the loose cable shortly.
The loose cable is probably normal. There is a trickle-charge adapter that they use while shipping the vehicles from the factory. It's probably that.

If you had the battery clamp activation wire completely disconnected, you'd not have had a 5 minute delay as this gets tested immediately upon ignition.
