Drive with no passenger seat?

Hi all,
I am half way through my stereo re-install and I would like to stop for the night. Have any of you driven your JK (4 door) without a passenger seat installed? I am concerned about sending an error code to the ECU concerning the Airbag sensors and seatbelt sensors.

The only sensor is a seat position sensor which affects how the air bags deploy because the air bag system is "staged". The seat belt being latched also affects deployment for each seat. You may or may not get an air bag light. If you do that's the reason. There has been no weight sensor in the seats of JK's since 07 so that's not an issue.

I just did this a week ago in my 2014 JKUR without side airbags .

I had the airbag light on constantly, drove it like that for two days...... Reinstalled seat and plugged in seat sensor, airbag light went away.

I had my battery disconnected for my compressor install after I reinstalled the seat so this May or may not have helped reset the light.
