Ok so i read the diy thread about how to get this done. there were no pics on that one i guess they were removed since it's been a long time since it was posted. WEll, my question is very simple: After you have gotten the 3 sensors out, along with opds unit and harness, what all do you do from there? I know you have to plug everything in but the directions in the diy do not indicate where exactly the resistors go. i know they connect to the cables that would usually plug into the side air bag unit, but where exactly? does anyone have pics of this being done? Also, just to ensure that i have it all right:
all i need is the 2 resistors, 3 sensors, 1 opds unit, and exention cable/harness, right?

Got the resistors in and did reset, still have srs light. Does anyone know what would happen if i were to use 2 ohm 1/2 watt resistors instead of 2 ohm 2 watts? I was unable to find the 2 watt ones so i used 1/2 watt. Maybe that's the issue. I will be buying some new resistors online and i'll get back to everyone. thanks

did you use the wiring harness from your oem seats? I just installed some aftermarket bucket seats in my car without using the wiring harness. will my front air bags still deploy?

no, i used the ep3 wiring. i thinkw hat you are really asking is if i used my old opds unit and the answer is no. the car knows i have no side airbags; the fronts will still deploy

eh, just pull out the cluster and cover up the light, she'll never know. mine has been on for 3 years now, it would be weird for me if it wasn't there:)

I should do that for the meantime. However, it tends to eark me that there is still something left on her car to do. It's like a project that you know you gotta finish but don't have the time for. I should have time during winter break :giggity:

More than 1 year later and we are still rocking the srs light. Anyone have any ideas of how to remove this? The diy on this site is not very detailed. Need help please.
