    Dash Gauge mount....removed factory clock...Airbag light

    So I removed my factory clock because I have a 3 pod dash gauge mount there and the airbag light now comes on on my instrument cluster...should I just plug the clock back in and shove it under gauge pod?

    Yeah, I think removing the clock shorts the SRS system somehow and will cause your airbags to not inflate in the case of an accident. I would just leave it hooked up and shove it down in the dash somewhere.

    Being that there is an airbag light in the clock area in the 06+, it makes sense that it would cause a problem. Definitely fix that.

    Heh, common mistake. You should be able to just splice the wires and run to both.
