Ok so for my steering wheel I'm obviously loosing the air bag which would cause the SRS light to come on. This basically makes all other air bags in the car inactive because it looks like there is a fault in the system. Resistors can be used to put a load on the circuit making it think the air bags are still plug in so all of the other air bags work like normal.

I found ZERO information on this through my research. Finally talked to BlackSportD and he wasn't sure, but thought it would be the same as the seats. So that was the only real guess I had and it ended up working.

The steering wheel SRS light can be fixed with a 3.3ohm resistor just like the seats. I used three 10ohm 1/2watt resistors in parallel to make my own U-Turn harness instead of the $20 Works Bell one lol. I would have preferred the Works hub but needed to save some money

Anyway, I didn't even grab pictures of the hub or anything lol. But I have some shitty pictures from my install. I forgot to grab my camera

Air bag off. The two screws on the side PISSED me off. They don't fit through the holes! I had to pull the plastic sides out so they fell down in between so I could get the air bag out

Plugged in. It was a little bulky but there is room underneath the column to hide it. The wire I used was thick enough that it was very snug in the plug. I then zip tied it to some other plugs underneath.

Done. Vertex wheel on. No SRS light!

I was planning on ordering a Vertex horn button and a pair of tires this week but things are on hold until I figure out the lip situation. Already checking with a couple other places to get me lips.

I will be doing some cleaning in the next week so I'll get some better pictures soon.
