    Hello Guys! for the best i start at the beginning so.. Last winter i kept my car my friends place nice and secure from the evil salt haha, anyway in that time i decided to do some things with the car one of the changes was the Evo steering wheel swap most DSM'ers do, the Car was of course disconnected from the battery for months when we did that
    soldered the right connector in so it would fit the Evo airbag) from there it was all fine no problems everything worked fine.

    and now Few weeks ago i told my friend if he please could checkout my steering wheel because it wasn't straight (that's another story tho) anyway he of course disconnected the Airbag plug (battery was still on the car) and since this Day the SRS light won't go away, since he works at a Mitsubishi Workshop he of course tried to read it out but i can't Access it, kinda like the airbag doesn't even exist? so my question here is did anyone else had this issue and what could i do to fix this? i heard some guys i could try to swap the airbag control Unit my friend told me it could also be the 'slip ring'?

    Any help would be appreciated! my personal though on this really is the airbag now see's itself as blown already?
    Thanks!:)

    Are you certain he hooked the airbag connector back up?

    Here's how I fixed my SRS issues:
    1: Remove instrument cluster
    2: Remove SRS bulb
    3: Drink beer and relax

    My issue was that I replaced the steering wheel with a non-airbag QD wheel, so there was no way to reset the SRS light and keep it off. I believe that the SRS module is separate from the OBD-2 system and needs a specialized reader to read and reset the faults, but I may be wrong.

    You need a real scan tool. Not a basic obd ii reader. A full function scan tool will allow you to access the body modules and delete the srs code.

    It was a 'real scan tool' as i said friend of mine works in a mitsubishi dealer/workshop and they have the proper one of course wasn't just an OBD II reader or anything like that but still no chance to enter the airbag unit which worked before just fine ( before the light went on)

    The only way to do it right would be to know what signal the airbag is throwing when is connected and add that resistance or what ever signal is to make the srs computer think the airbag is connected.

    To test and determine if the clock spring is the culprit you can bypass it completely. Jump the airbag harness pre clock spring with a 2.2k ohm resistor then rescan the module.
