    Do a search, you need a 3.3 ohm 3/4 watt resistor stuck into each plug. That will simulate the airbags still being plugged up and no SRS light.

    I might be getting Sti seats soon, do they have side airbags as well? If so, how do I hook them up?

    with what on the other end of the cut plug?

    itll still see nothing there.

    thats like cutting the wire and leaving the seats in.

    the fixes are really easy and cheap.

    i read on nasioc that the factory sensor's resistance is 3.0 ohm 1w. now i know .3 difference is acceptable, but is the extra 1/4 acceptable as well?
    Definition of “rice”; to install or want items which makes the vehicle “cheesy” in appearance or in ist function. The term is more often than not used by non-Asian races. Also, the products or style used and defined as “rice” is more often than not manufactured and sported by non-Asians.

    Now that PM from Wicked makes sense, LOL

    I used 1/4 watt 3.3 ohm resistors, and they work fine. Don't cut anything. That's pointless, since the unplugged harness is the same as a cut wire - an open circuit. The resistor simulates the airbags in the seat. You just tape it into the empty harness. I've had them in for almost a year, no idiot light, no problems, and I've got ~34,000 miles on my car now. It works.

    I have 100 of these resistors. I can provide them for a small donation, say a buck for two?
