This is beginning to sound like less and less fun.
Since the damned thing is in "fail enable" mode, I suppose just taking the bulb out of the security light is an option.
Some questions: " Locate the two wires under the steering column and cut them on the lock cylinder side of the main connector block. "
1. Does this mean simply solder the two wires FROM the lock cylinder together?
2. " Then jump the two wires together with the resistor on the vehicle side of the cut (not the cylinder side). Solder the connections and slide heat shrink tubbing over the resistor and wires making sure that the resistor is laying straight (two ends not touching). Shrink and done."
So the resistor is soldered INLINE with the wires on the vehicle side? i.e., they make a circuit with the resistor in that circuit?
Thanks for your patience. Pulling the steering wheel sounds like a bitch of a job, what with the airbag in the wheel and all.
