Need some help, just installed my boss short hub and have an airbag light. However I had an airbag light before because I bought the car with salvage title and front end damage. Both seatbelts locked up and driver airbag went off. Sent ecu out to get codes cleared and the seatbelts out to get rebuilt. Got everything back and installed it and still have airbag light. The orange and black plugs would not come off the airbag after it detonated so I had to cut the wires. I wired both resistors to the wires directly and still have airbag light. Any help would be appreciated. Not sure what to do next. Would the light come on because the connection is not as good as if I were plugging the pins in to the connector? Does it matter if red goes to red and black to black? What about the blue?


Edit: never mind I got it figured out. Had to reinstall interior to get the airbag light to go out. All set now

I appear to be having the same issue but with the NRG short hub. I'm going to triple check everything tomorrow and ill post back.

Also anyone maybe can help hooking the horn up, i hate wiring and sort of unsure what wires are for the horn. I dont seem to have 2 red wires. Im thinking its the connector to the right for the horn? just want to be 100%. Also my wheel has a 1 connector horn, so im assuming one wire to that and one wire to the ground disc connector thing the hub came with.

if it wont center no matter what, maybe try having the alignment redone and hold the steering wheel center where you want it.

An airbag is not going to save you from a wooden plank flying right through your windshield into your head.

Every time someone puts a aftermarket steering on or aftermarket seat on that some internet idiot comes on to read you a pamphlet about safety when operating a vehicle with anything aftermarket that isn't OEM. For god sakes it's the owners car and it's his choice to do the mod for reason they want or need. Not everyone is a fat ass that could only fit o the OEM seat or some dude with large hands that loves the thickness of the OEM steering wheel. Some people are skinny and want a narrow seat for more support or a thinner steering wheel to allow their tiny hands to wrap around. Vice versa for people that are fatter than the normal American that requires bigger seat than OEM or a thicker steering wheel than the OEM for more comfort. People do these mods to their cars to help keep them comfortable and appreciate the car even more.

People in general need to grow some balls and just take responsible for all mods you do to a car. You don't need forum mommy's to tell you all day long about the hazards of anything you do to your car. I'm sure it's getting borderline ridiculous to a point where one day someone is going to say your aftermarket lugs are unsafe to use, stick with OEM. Nut up or shut up.

end of rant.


couldn't have said it better myself

Did you find the fix for it?

Saw Speedfactory's video. The blue and black connector, does it tie together?

I had the shop which did my cage not install the clockspring and I have the lights on... Will be re-installing and want to make sure I have the connector issue sorted.

TIA

I watched a video on YouTube. You need to line up the clock spring exactly. I ended up installing the wheel like 4 times before I finally got it right

I got around this last summer but I had the NRG hub. Same issue was either slight right or left no matter how many times I tried.


I ended up just mounting the hub and used the steering as a template to mark new holes. took my time drilling through the aluminum hub, then used a harbor frieight tap and die set to tap threads into the new holes.
