Hey guys.

Over the past saturday and today i decided to take the time and get off my bum and convert the old girl, which went amazingly smooth.

Everything has turned out as planned after doing the resistor trick etc, car runs amazing, no rev hang, no constant thermos etc,

I did the malwood pin kit rather than taking the dash out so this cannot be a cause of my drama,
For some reason.. since i first started the car the Air bag and ABS light have been on constantly.. it had no effect.. but because im anal its driving me nuts already, i want it sorted. Ahah, i dont see how this could have occured, i didnt think the transmission/harness had anything to do with abs and airbags? :shock: just wondering if anyone else has had this dilemma? And how they sorted it? Cheers everyone

Read the codes for them and see what is actually bringing the lights on? They may just have picked up a mysterious sensor code and need to be cleared...

It's in the tech docs for code reading... Otherwise most of us have one of Muzza's code readers... Mine is worth it's weight in gold for reading and clearing codes...

Sure the tech docs explain ABS and airbag codes... Unlike the engine codes you only need to ground the pin and the jewel in the cluster flashes out the code...

Cheers,
Tim
