why does the driver air bag feel hot when shut down after driving on 2010 Nissan Versa

we drive to a destination then stop from 1/2 to 1 1/2 hours and the airbag in the steering wheel feels very hot while none of the other equipment in the vicinity does. Why

should not feel hot at all. go to a shop familiar with air bag systems and have them evaluate the issue. get this done soon before the air bag deploys while you are driving. Roy
