951 Steering Wheel Replacement

Recommended Posts

I have an 1989 951 Turbo, used for DE events, and wish to replace the stock steering wheel with a non-airbag Momo wheel. I'm looking for the procedure to deactivate the airbag warning light. I've been told there is a way to make the system think the airbag is still installed but haven't been able to obtain specifics.

Thank you, Dan Deitz

I'd like to know about this as well.

I actually also am trying to get the procedure for getting to the air bag unit, and even to the tach in order to clean it up inside, and replace the bulbs (bad lighting).

I did this on my '89 Turbo. Removed the steering wheel and passenger airbags. Then the airbag light and the ! light came on. I did some searching on the forums (probably Pelican) and found a post where someone cut the signal wire. I double checked by looking at the wiring diagram for an '89 and cut the wire under the passenger side dash. If I remember it was the orange wire but you better check before you cut anything. Neither light comes on now. When I pull the parking brake lever the ! light comes on so hopefully it will come on for other errors as well.

Hope this helps

BTW: Air bags are for sale if anyone needs them.
