every cluster should have the "srs" or airbag light in it. That person who put the cluster in may have taken out the bulb for the airbag since it has an aftermarket wheel on it.

Take out the cluster and hold it in front of a semi bright light. You'll be able to see what all the "blanks" really are. Then pop a bulb into the airbag spot. If you don't see an airbag spot then start taking out bulbs until you find it.

i doubt it.. The wrx cluster wiring is pretty different from the rs. I've got the 04 wrx/sti wiring diagrams, and 01 rs diagrams.. I can compare those 2 cars, but can't supply good info for 99 or older.

I think he's talking about the v4 STi cluster. The USDM STi one doesn't have any bulbs, and is an extreme challenge wiring into a car with a GC series dash.
