airbag and seatbelt lights. with harness

So I just installed my sexy new Twisted Stitch driver seat and Corbeau harness. How do I get rid of the dash warning lights? Thanks! Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...

I'd be interested to know. Last I heard was that you can't. At least on the airbag part.

You could surely either rewire the seat belt or just plug a seatbelt latch into it permanently.

Nope- you can
Cut off below the 4-pin connector (leave room on each end to re-splice later). On the harness (vehicle) side, splice the green wire into the black wire (thanks, Venom ).
Then, take the pressure switch (2 bolts that were on the OEM seat rail- little black sensor with 2-wire (lt. blue with white tracer, lt. blue w/purple tracer)- splice those wires onto the 2 matching wires you cut off of the 4-pin. Giggity! Full safety!

Disclaimer, since whiny bitches will yell at me for telling you how to ride without your seatbelt:
If it seems like a good idea to drive on public roads with your seatbelt off, go do a bullet taste test. Bigger calibers taste like candy!
That said, be smart. Seatbelts are standard on EVERY street legal vehicle for a damn good reason. This is only for folks running harnesses. Cheers, and enjoy! (Responsibly)- Mark W.

Good to know. Last I heard those of us with side airbags were stuck with the light if we upgraded seats. Glad somebody has figured it out.

Still having a Airbag Light Issue

I connected the seat mounted sensor to the remaining matching color wires from the 4-pin. Still have airbag light but no chime.

Was it ok I removed it from the mounting bracket (metal) and just have it lying on the floor (for now) under the seat ??

The Project is moving forward.

Do you have side airbags? The light shouldn't be on if you connected things properly.

As for the bracket, mine is zip tied to the underside of my driver's seat- no issues with all the water that gets under there- Mark W.

My harness came in so I will pull the driver seat for install and figure it out !! I rechecked all my connections. I don't have side airbags. Wonder if I have a bad sensor ??

I'd re-check the connections- did you crimp or solder? Either way, make sure there are good connections- Mark W.

Did you ground the wire that was connected to the frame before? If you don't you'll get a light.

31 jeeps in... still have issues

The wire that was attached to the frame ???

So far I am only dealing with..........

I have clipped the sensor from the harness under the seat (light blue/purple & light blue/white) and connected those two wires to the 4-pin matching wires. The other two wires from the 4-pin (one green and one black) are spliced together.

What are you saying I missed ??

The Project is moving forward.

On nicks 09 4 door there was a black wire that ran to a weird box/connector on the frame of the stock seat (like near the sliders). My wifes 07 2 door was different but still had the connector.

His new seat brackets didn't have a provision for it. It needs to be grounded to the seat frame.

All connections checked

Latest on the airbag light !!

Both airbag sensor wires (lt blue/white lt blue/purple) have been reconnect to the 4-pin matching wires.

Still have the light, but only one initial chime. NO ADDITIONAL CHIME even after an hour driving.

When starting the light is initially OFF !! Then I get one chime and the light.

Going to try and replace the sensor...... Will report back.

The Project is moving forward.

Latest

Installed new Airbag. Still have the light.

Code now say's it's the seat track position sensor. That little black relay looking thing which has the two lt blue wires (one white striped / one purple striped). This little pain in the crotch is pissing me off !!

Did I miss something mounted on the seat track...... ????

This position sensor is magnetic !!! What is it reading ????

Any help would be appreciated


The Project is moving forward.

What is the Corbeau harness??

I replaced my seats with some Twisted's and had the side air bags in my seats. I've just been living with the light... would be interested in turning it off though.

Ahhh, Ok.. I misunderstood.. Harness = Seat Belt Harness.. I thought it was referring to some sort of wiring harness used to defeat air bag light.

I used a M&R harness but also kept my factory seat belts installed for street driving.
