i'd like to see a diy for cruise control and horn (else i may get some cheap horn and hook it to a button cuz as much as i hate the sound of our horn, i need it for a-holes that like to switch lanes without looking.

Default FYI

To take the scare out of the air bag you just need to pull the ground cable securely away from the post. Then leave a door open the cabin light will discharge any capacitance in the system. As for the clips on the airbag connectors simply pry the little yellow inserts/stays in the middle of them and they will come right out. HTH
Nice write up.

Well I installed my wheel yesterday and now my VSC and the traction control light are on. I knew the airbag light was on and i am still looking for 3 ohm resisters or something similar but does anyone know how to fix this?

I just covered mine with electrical tape. (Pulled the gauges out which is really easy, put tape under the gauge face piece so it wouldn't be seen.)
