Re: problem:no airbag if u change sparco seat (333)

Your whole air bag system will not work without the seat airbag pluged in. The airbag control module checkes the resistence in all the air bags before it turns the lite out. So you can fool it in one of two ways. Remove the air bag from the old seat and cut out the bag from the module and put it under the seat. {pluged in} the control module will still see that you have an air bag so the lite goes out. In an accident all the rest of the bags will work ok but the one with no bag will just go bang-no bag! Or substitute a resistor with the same resistence as the air bag unit so the control module thinks there is an air bag there-lite goes out! Hope that helps.?
