Getting tired of the airbag light. How much for someone to make one?

It’s code B100b1b Driver Thorax airbag igniter that I’m getting.

Unless someone knows how to code it out?

I've got some seat airbag cancellers I'm building. The issue with NAR vehicles is we also have the rail sensor to deal with.

You can either find the part number off yours a buy a replacement and pin it into the connector and hide it away. Second is to either pull your whole harness or separate your own sensor and tuck it away.

If doing passenger seat you'll need a passenger seat occupancy sensor as well. That you'll most likely need to purchase a replacement as it's glued between layers on the seat. That you can put into your new seat, but the car will disable the airbags if it doesn't detect it.

I've got the seat airbag canceller no problem, but I'm working individually on the other sensors currently with a few users.

I have the rail sensor installed since I’m using Recaro brackets and I picked up an additional seat harness.

I only have a driver side Recaro seat at this time.

Sounds like you just need a seat airbag canceller. If you have the yellow connector style I can make up a set for you.

I followed the directions here and made those yellow plug cancellers, but I still have an airbag light on. I believe it's because of the seat occupancy sensor. I can only guess that I made them wrong or I missing something. This is going to be a huge problem soon as new seats are going in. ( I originally upgraded to Corbeaus but I have OEM seats currently). Storable, if you can help that would be great. Seats show up in about a week or so I think.

The occupancy sensor is built into the heating pad for both sides. And you need both. and you need both driver and passenger seat harness. And you need resistor for each side. And you need rail sensor for both side which is part of the harness. I know bc I was the first to do this 4 years ago. I’ve been air bag light free since. Also, my passenger seat belt light works for the Recaro. It blinks when someone one is in the seat unbelted. Goes off once they click in. Oem as fuck.

The driver side does not have an occupancy sensor, only the pass side - I followed this thread guidance and swapped the full harnesses for both seated and put the passenger seat heater bottom pad *only on my corbeau and the passenger air bag on/off feature works as oem the way noted above.

Driver side i only made sure the rail sensor stayed on the harness and did the air bag resistors.

You might be right. I did it so long ago that I don’t remember. I had put the heating pad in both seats anyway because I wanted heated Recaros. I know for sure passenger side had the sensor built in bc I remember thinking the parts guy at my local dealer was full of shit lol. I could have sworn driver side had one also but not certain.
