Carbon seats trigger SRS light

I was able to source a set of carbon fiber sport seats for my v12v but since they don't have airbags in the seat, it triggers the srs light. Is there a way to "fool" the srs system into thinking all is ok so that the steering wheel and passenger airbags are still operational?

Thanks.

Is the white connection found under the carbon seat for the SRS connection? If so, perhaps the light just needs to be reset?

I can't give you an answer to your question. However, where did you purchase your seats? And are they bolt in? Could you post some pictures. I have always thought, they looked great and must be much more comfortable in the Eropean reviews I have seen.

I only know how it is done in general when you replace the steering wheel against one without airbag - then you simply plug in a resistor to simulate the existance of the airbag and thus "fool" the controls.

So I guess for the seat it's a similar procedure - unless you can reprogram the software to not expect an airbag here (probably need the acess righs of a AM dealer?).
You can simply measure the resistance of the seat airbags, AFAIK the steering wheel was 9 Ohm.

Yes, the white connector is for the side airbag. Industry standard is or was Yellow. Plug it in and have codes cleared. If the seat doesn't have and SRS fitted you can use a 2 ohm resistor, or buy an airbag simulator test tool.
