MOMO Steering Wheel Airbag Sensor?

For those of you that have replaced your stock steering wheel/airbag with a MOMO non airbag wheel, what is the trick to not tripping the airbag light?
Thx

You could always just remove the bulb. No more annoying airbag light!

works bell has a nicely packaged airbag plug kit/male harness. If you google, theres a couple places that has em for about $40. I use this as it came with my wheel.
Other option is resistor. Doesn't look as pretty but gets the job done 2.2ohm 1/4watt

I took the airbags out of my doors and passenger side dash. The only airbag I have left is the steering wheel and that's because I haven't bought an aftermarket steering wheel yet. I second the idea of just removing the bulb. It's free and only takes 5 minutes.

If you have a scanner or access to a scanner that turns off airbags...Airbagsystems can make you an airbag shunt. Very easy to install and convenient to pay the extra $$$. Just send them an email with car details and your good. I still haven't figured out how to wire my horn but at least my airbag light is off

Buy a spare clock spring and use the yellow plug to wire a resistor to, fairly simple to do.

As for the horn you need the 'L' shaped contact from the 993, run a wire from that to the red plug and you'll have a working horn. Total cost in parts was less than 20.
