what about the swap guys that put in the GD version steering wheel into the GC chassis. i understand that the bag is different but they are using the GC control module.

i personally try not to mess with the air bag systems but i plan on doing a swap and using the complege GC steering colum with steering wheel.

Noob...
GD = 02+
GC = 93-01

I think what he means is does a GC module in a GD steering wheel still function properly, since it's in a steering wheel that the module wasn't originally designed for...

I don't know if it's a federal law, or if it's a Pennsylvania law but... it's illegal to dispose an undeployed airbag.















They also blow up good, and get a considerable amount of air time if positioned on their face and promptly connected to a car battery. Oh yeah, and the deployment is as loud as a gunshot and can prompt someone to call 911 thinking that someone got shot. Ask me how I know.

I have a GD dash in my coupe. I have yet to get the airbags to work properly. I am using my original GC module, adn everythign plugged into it correct with my 06 harness. But I still have lights, plus my plugs that go into the steering wheel are different right now. To tell the truth I have not taken the time to figure it out, right now the lights are just covered up with electrical tape. I know it is possible though, I have talked to people who have done it!

Word. It seems they usually end up hurting more people than saving them. I'm getting rid of mine soon when I get a new steering wheel. I'm keeping the passenger one for now though.

Just an FYI airbags work as a system. you unplug one, then all the others no longer work. This is why you can't use a GD SRS module in a GC car, no side airbags to hook up.
