if youre already overwriting/bypassing the dash light for the seats you shouldnt need to do anything else for the wheel. you airbag system either works or doesnt, i dont think there are zones (may be wrong) but i would think if you bypass for one area all areas would be bypassed?

well what i did was installed my airbags and did a little work on the bags so if they deploy i wont launch out my sunroof. but as of now all my airbags are working and have no light, i do know that if ur airbag light is on then all ur airbags are disabled and that what i dont want. so really i didnt bypass aything i just installed the airbags.

Did you ever relocate the cruise control main switch? Does it come out as an assembly that you could screw onto, say, a homemade aluminum bracket?

I do want change to an aftermarket wheel so that I can locate the wheel closer to me, but I'm not sure what to do about the cruise control.

even if you fix the seat airbag problem you'll still get the airbag light on with the wheel, the only way to fix it is a similar way to the seat fix but its probably gonna be a different resistance. same method tho.

Is there a specific size hub that fits the tC? I bought a "universal" hub adapter and it did not fit.

take a flathead screwdriver and stick it under the black center part of the clip, once that pops up then you can take the whole clip out.

is this on the airbag piece or the piece that's still connected to the wheel?

Pics! I want to see the cruise control. I think I'll take care of the horn today. The air bag light is a 3 ohm resistor. You can do that at the bottom or the top.
