    I am thinking of putting an mtec 2 steering wheel on my car but they have no airbag.
    will it leave the airbag light on on my dashboard and will it deactivate the passenger one aswell

    If you fit the non air bag wheel it will disable the whole SRS system. You can fit the airbag wheel by converting the column from slip ring to a brass contacts with a small bit of wiring. A few forum members have swapped airbag to non air bag wheels....
