Alternatively, you can put a 2 ohm resistor in the plug that goes into the air bag. The airbag module only reads resistance to establish that the air bag is in place and functioning. By putting the resistor in place of the air bag the module thinks the air bag is there and the system functions normally as if the bag were there. This works on all airbag components, steering wheel bags, dash bags, side curtain bags, seat belt retractors, all of it. All airbag components read a resistance of around 2 ohms. Ford has even done this on factory vehicles with optional air bags, same wiring harness for all setups and factory resistor plug caps where airbags optional weren't used. Even a diagnostic scan with the best available equipment cant see the difference between an airbag and a resistor so even if you're in a state that would scan your car during an emission test no one would be the wiser. You would actually have to go looking for the air bag to realize it isnt there
