How did you make the jump from "Driver-side Airbag Ignition Squib" to "R12/9 fault"? I can't confirm that you are chasing the right airbag here.

The usual suspect for these is the connector block under the seat - if a water bottle, jacket, etc, gets shoved underneath, and then the seat moved, it can cause physical problems at the connector. It usually results in an "open circuit" which does translate nicely to "resistance too large".
I didn't, my mechanic has , his diagnostics said steering angle squib . So he replaced it . Then said he got this new code
