Default Steering Wheel AirBag Question

I am going to be installing a Sparco steering wheel in my 2010 WRX. I was curious about:

If I install this wheel without getting the Ohm Resistor right away will it cause any of the other airbags to deploy for any reason other than an accident. I am a newb to things like this. So this may be a stupid question.

Racing wheel installed, airbag light on, will it cause the other airbags to malfunction and inflate randomly?

Thanks guys

Bronson

Airbags do not deploy in the car unless triggered by an accident.

Edit: May actually cause airbags to NOT inflate in case of accident.

Everything went good on the swap to the Sparco wheel.. However no OHM resistor in yet. My airbag light is on... obviously.... and my hill holder light came on... I need to know if the hill holder light was caused by the airbag light.. and I need to know where the OHM resistor goes...
