theres a certain resistance you have to put in line with the airbag wire to make the light go out - measure the resistance if the bag itself first and then find a resistor within 5% of that value - did this in an s-10 about a month ago for a friend of mine

if you can talk to a GM tech, they actually have lil resistors for diognosing SRS problems. you could just clip that on and be done with it. they sell them in parts so all u would have to do is get the part# for your bag.. should be under 10 bucks i would think

Ive seen it done. One of the guys over on blazinlow did it. just make a shell of the airbag , trim it, cut a hole in the middle for the tv hole, glass and mold it into the shell, sand, reglass, sand, reglass, sand sand and sand again till its smooth, make some brackets to hold it to the original mounts or make your own, curl up the power and signal wires in the column and have some pimpin fun

I think no.. If it went off you would have a face full of TV. That would not be good :crazy:

mounting the monitor in place of the airbag isnt a big issue - what I want to know is how they wire it. With all that twisting and movement in the steering column, a straight run of wires dont stand a chance of lasting. I believe that auto makers use a sort of rotating contact assembly to connect steering wheel controls to the column. Maybe installers are useing this and/or retrofitting one in.
