Passenger sear removal

I've been doing a bit of research on how to remove the passenger seat, and there is a suggestion that doing so will cause problems with the airbags requiring a dealer reset. Anyone shed any more light on this for me please?

I don't know how the jeeps are, but i had to take the passenger seat out of my silverado once. It had a weight sensor under it, and was an automatic airbag. If there was no passenger, it wouldn't enable that airbag. I just took that one out and disconnected the sensor while no power was on no problem.


If I remember I got the airbag warning light in the dash cluster bacause the computer recognized that the sensor had been disconnected. But that was it.

Are you putting it back in, or is it going to be out for a while? Only problem I could see is the rest of the system maybe not working right while it is out. But if you are doing it with the ignition off and no power going to the computer, and plug everything back in before you start it up again there should be no issue. And just to be on the cautious side, disconnect the battery first.

I'm not sure how the JK's are made, but my TJ had no electrical stuff under the seat anyway. It just had a key switch for always on or always off, just in front of the shifter.

I'm going to have to go to accessory power to check that the remote turn on is working, and to test that all my wiring has worked. There's some form of electrical connector under there, but I haven't looked at in detail. I'm presuming it's some kind of weight sensor as the seatbelt light illuminates if there's a passenger in the seat who hasn't done their belt up, and I would expect it links to the airbag as well.

I guess I'll give it a go and see what happens!

Any updates?

ETA: I found this THIS THREAD which states that as long as long as you remove and subsequently re-install the seat without turning on the ignition, it shouldn't be an issue.

I undid the six bolts that secure the seat to the frames and laid it in the back seat so I didn't have to remove the seatbelt mount. I didn't turn the ignition on while the seat was out, but once I'd finished I put the seat back on and turned on the ignition, all worked perfectly with no error messages.
