Question Airbag Circuit Bypass?

I'm thinking about going with some aftermarket seats, but worried about the air bag circuit after I remove the stock seats which of course has the airbag in it. Is there a airbag circuit bypass?

I can't stand warning lights, so don't want to be staring at one after replacing the seats.

I spoke to seat company and they recommended Vetteworks as having airbag bypass deal. I was concerned about the same. I have not called the Vetteworks people yet. Still looking at seat options.

Just speculating, but there must be a simple way. The 1LT (at least through 2008) did not have the seat airbags while the 2LT and higher did. If the 1LT uses the same wiring harness as the 2LT, I wonder if GM has a simple end connection with a resistor that plugs in.

I did not get around to taking pics of the LG harness under the seat of my Corbeau FXpro install.
It went very well. I purchased the adjustable C5 rail and mounted the seat to it.
I also had an extra seat belt receiver from a generic honda seat belt install i used---there is a place on the rail to mount it to. Thats for legal reasons to use the stock seatbelt.

I have the 3lt stock seat with airbag. LG sells the harness adapter that allows the telescopic steering wheel control to work as well as keep the seat belt idiot light from going on-I do not know if the air bag in the steering wheel would work....they have a page disclaimer about all of that.

You have to take the module out from under the stock seat and plug in the LG harness and place it on the floorboard under the aftermarket seat.

An airbag is a type of vehicle safety device and is an occupant restraint system. The airbag module is designed to inflate extremely rapidly then quickly deflate during a collision or impact with a surface, and the firing circuit ON when collision deters.
