Airbag light & removing seat Q

I always removed my seat without the battery connect to avoid the airbag light.

Basically I want to remove the seat to clean the carpets (bissel steam cleaner) & leather itself. Since its winter, it'll take some time to dry.. if I drive around without the seat on, will it trigger some airbag light issue that I can' t disable once I put the seat back in ?

Thanks in advance

Yes. you will trigger airbag light and they will stay on.

If you have coder, you can easily turn them off.

I don't know whether if you turn off the airbag on the passenger side before you take out the seat, it'll still trigger though.

some cheaper readers are airbag capable. but yeah, you remove seat with batt disconnect, if you reconnect the batt without the sensor plugged in youll get the airbag light.. no biggie really, just both airbags will deploy even if there is no one sitting in the seat..
