Default Airbag control module swap

hey all,

having some issues with my airbag light staying on. need it to get registered so the light is a pain. clockspring is fine, seems like it's the airbag control module. ordered one off of ebay and it should be coming in soon. aside from disconnecting the battery, is there anything else I need to do in regards to the swap or is it pretty straight forward?

thanks!

When I installed cruise control in mine I let the Jeep sit for about 20 minutes after disconnecting the battery.
Figure better safe then sorry.
When you start the Jeep for the first time after the install do it from the passenger seat.
See line 2. LOL.

You said the clockspring is fine, how did you go around testing it?

Grab a multimeter and check the connectors on both sides of the clockspring for continuity thru the spool.
