Measure the internal resistance of an OEM airbag
(be careful as the smallest amount of current could set it off)
and insert a termination resistor of the proper value into the
plug that attached to the airbag. Presto, AirBag MIL gone.
Or buy a Termination Resistor (or junkyard one out of a S197
that didnt come OEM with side AirBags) and try that in place
of the actual steering wheel AirBag.

Then place a loser sticker adhesive side up on the aftermarket
cover so as to be identified as one after an accident.
Save a little, pay a lot.
A tuner wont touch the RCM, only the PCM.
It cant even touch the SJB or the CCM.
Or the TPMS. Govt Mandated systems are
a big no-no to hack and modify.
Purchasing a vehicle from a dealer with deployed
or missing AirBags is against the law.
Maybe make them replace it before you sue them?
