Help with Seat Please

so i just bought the recaro's and ran into a problem. I have the 06 which has the weight sensor and the new seats dont even have a plug to plug into. I'm at a loss at what to do. any help? i wont run it till i have it fixed because i do not want some one sitting in there with the airbag not working. worse comes to worse i'll put the stock grey in with the rest black leather till i figure it out

Interesting. I thought that if the weight sensor was not hooked up the airbag was supposed to stay on and not off...

no when you sit on the seat the air bags light comes on(on the passenger side) then like a min later after you get up it goes away

Yeah, I just thought the default was "on" if it became unplugged is all.

It's kind of weird because if the sensor in you car becomes unplugged the airbag goes off... That sounds like a problem waiting to happen. If they are unplugged they should automatically come on. imho.

Send a message via AIM to camopaint0707
It will give you the airbag warning with it being disconnected

Is there anyway to take the sensor out of an old seat and install it in another seat or get on from a salvage yard to intall to make everything work. I have similar plans also to change out my LS seats for SS seats.
