Default Aftermarket steering wheel resistor/wiring questions

I have a 2013 Mini Cooper that had a multifunction steering wheel. I recently installed a new wheel and just as I expected I had acquired some new dash lights in the process. The lights that came on are the airbag, traction light (yellow) and a brake light ( yellow) to my understanding these lights are now run through the steering, through the clock spring and to the wheel. I plan on using resistors on the wire connects from the clockspring. My question is if anyone has done this or already knows the correct resistances for these wires. A lot of threads show the resistance for the seat airbag wiring but I have yet to come across any for the steering wheel. Also does anyone know if once these resistors are in place of the lights will automatically shut off or if it needs to be done my the dealer. Thanks.

Ducks might be able to help you. Most of the conversions here are w/ the Gen1.

Unless they changed something with the LCI (which I doubt) you should only have to put in one resistor for the airbag. Just connect it to the green connector that connects to the airbag. Some hub's/bosses provide one. Other option is to code the airbag module. You can use the same type of resistor that are used when the seats are removed.
