Default Air Bag light

Okay i got a new steering wheel and took out the oem one, but the air bag light keeps on blinking... is there something i can do besides take out the cluster and pull the light?

Mine came on for a little while, but cleared up when I took out all the airbag-related sensors I could find.

3 - 1ohm resistors in series
or
3 - 10ohm resistors in parallel
or
1 - 3 ohm resistor

Where does the resistor(s) need to wired to kill the light?

i used a 3ohm 1/4 watt resistor i got from a specialty electronics store. worked great... just cut the connector off and stick the resistor between the wires.

Un plugging one of the plugs on a blue box under the steering column works as well. Left plug if i remember correctly.
