Hi all,
I have been doing a lot of research but I haven't been able to find a clear answer on this

I am looking to install aftermarket seats (or at least a driver seat). I won't take my car to a track or anything, I am doing it for headroom/legroom reasons. I would like to keep as much of the OEM functionality as possible especially the airbags.

So obviously if I replace a seat that has an airbag with a seat that doesn't have an airbag, I'm losing an airbag. What I haven't been able to find a clear answer on is if all the OTHER airbags will still work. I have read about the resistor trick, and logically it makes sense to me that the car thinks the airbag is still there, so there is no light, and the whole airbag system still works, but I really want to be SURE.

I'll probably do the driver seat only, so the passenger will still have power/heated seats and full airbags... but for me I'm willing to give up one airbag to have my knees not touching the dash and head not touching the ceiling.
