Hi, I have recently completed a hack on my convertible top relay to allow me to defeat the speed sensor, essentially allowing me to operate my cabrio top while in motion. What I am concerned about, is a thought that because I am defeating the speed sensor by bending Pin# 18 on the cabrio relay, that I may also be affecting the speed sensors for the safety measures of the car, including the airbag deployment system. Will my airbags fail to deploy if I did this relay hack, or is the speed sensor feed from my cabrio top to the speedometer the only sensor that is disabled? Many thanks.Rich
