Sounds like you put the wrong column in your truck. You should not have to cut and splice wires. The new column should have just plugged right in. You're going to need to inspect every wire and any ground straps/wires for proper connections. With the airbag system involved be extremely careful!! With the light on the airbags are disabled so they won't deploy in a crash BUT if you energize the airbag module, even for a split second, through a wrong connection the airbag WILL deploy. Possibly causing serious injury!! HTH. -Jim
