        Try three 1 ohm resistors, or two 1.5 ohm maybe.
        You may want to double check the exact ohm rating on m.net. in case its 3.1 ohm or something. I am working from memory.
        It needs to have correct resistance otherwise controller will flash the light

            From Miata.net Garage....

            Information in the archives varies, but on my car a 3 ohm, 1/4 watt resistor connected across the two leads in the blue connector running back into the car will fool the computer into thinking the airbag module is still there.

                Brilliant! How do you think of this ****?? :lol:

                His car has an airbag controller that will still cause buzzers to ring and lights to flash.
                To remove that on his year model you must remove the dash and the heater plentum....a major pain compared to installing a resistor.

                  Hmmm thinking more about that...I hope exceeding the ohm rating didnt 'blow' your controller.
                  If so nothing short of removing it will 'fix' that.

                    Using a higher resistance resistor shouldn't cause any damage.

                            My airbag light is on in the S but don't know why. I've cleared the light before but it just comes back on. I think I'm just going to remove the bulb.

                              In some cars that will trigger a buzzer.
