I road race, so having a good feel, and a shorter diameter is good.

    And just for the record, I have invested way more money underneath my hood than on just the looks of my car... I not some stupid ricer that only buys stuff to make my car look "cool". There's nothing wrong with going fast and looking good at the same time. Everyone that has seen my interior thinks that it looks awesome.
    ok thats all i wanted to kno. just reminds me of a crapy ass honda everytime i see or hear about em but at least u have a good reason for one so more power to ya. what kinda work do u have done under the hood

    The joystick is a real aircraft joystick that is made by a company out in California called Infinity Aerospace. This is the same joystick being used in the Eclipse 500 light jet. The joystick is fully functional. I have it wired to a circuit board that can control the stereo and I also have my brake line lock on there. I like it because I never have to take my hand off the stick. It feels awesome too!!

    you could have wired in a resistor to mimick the load of the air bag you removed.Then the light system would be operational.I think its a federal law you can't legally break out those bulbs ot tamper with the system to defeat its warning that the air bag is nonfunctional.Not sure how you would really get caught though,unless you posted up the info out on the net for everyone to see.

Well sorry for answering my own question, but hey, maybe somebody else wants the same info.... I included a picture that shows what the lights look like when the board is pulled up... Thanks for all the suggestions, though...
    i pulled my light out but my "service vehicle" light came on

    An open circuit was most likely detected, tripping the check engine light since you removed the airbag bulb.

    Either with a scanner or you can disconnect the battery for a few minutes.

    You could reinstall the airbag light and disconnect the battery to clear the code or have the dealer do it for you.

    Like Rich said, you just need to reinstall the bulb. Pulling the bulb doesn't work as you've found out. Like I posted 7 years ago in this thread, I unplugged my air bags, and just don't pay attention to the light. Doesn't bother me.

    You could always take the cluster apart and put a piece of tape over it if you feel that ambitious.
