Just wanted to let everyone know that I have a backlit airbag in hand and am working on the steps required to retrofit. It is not plug and play as we expected and will take some wiring to make it work properly. The backlit feature adds three additional wires to the connector behind the airbag so I need to figure out where to steal those wires from in the existing steering wheel wiring. I will post instructions when I have it completed. The holes to pop the airbag off are also hidden and took me a bit to find them. Stay tuned!

Whammy! Instructions coming soon. It's not that bad but not for the faint of heart either.

Order from my parts guy, Al @ Capital Chrysler Jeep Dodge. His email is Ahumphries@capitalcjd.com. Just mention you are from JeepGarage or that Clark sent you his way. Price is $300 or so. I think he may have a few left in stock but can usually get them in 2-3 days if not. He will have a better price than most guys out there but being as though this is a free country I will post the part number. It is 5RX161XRAD001.

Can't wait for your instructions. Mine is sitting on the counter patiently waiting to be installed.

I'm gonna go ahead and ask, do you think the airbag will deploy safely? The dealership was worried about the car's computer system not recognizing the different part number.

Also, did you get the steering wheel or just airbag?

You just need the airbag module and not the entire steering wheel and that is the only thing I swapped.

The only thing different between the two airbags is the backlit logo and the three additional wires to power and control the logo. The airbag does not have a "brain" or control module and its firing is controlled by the BCM. The new airbag will work just like your stock airbag and will deploy just fine just as long as you don't forget to reconnect the two connectors to the inflation mechanisms. The dealership must issue a warning to anyone messing with a safety device like an airbag outside of their control. The last thing they need is someone getting killed because they impropely swapped an airbag and having their family sue them as a result. There should be no concern about this being a different part number as your Jeep has no idea which airbag is installed.
