So the seats doesn’t come with air bag?
From some of the info I read, if the partial of the air bag is out, the whole system won’t work.
Or when you trick the system so there is no air bag light will also accomplish that the whole system will work properly even one is out?

Correct, the whole system will still work you just won’t have one go off in the seat. A pillar and b pillar bags will still deploy.

is there a way to get around the passenger occupancy sensor and the seat heaters if they are not wanted?

You can code out seat heaters. Although even with them disconnected and not coded out I think you'll only have soft faults in the BCM that show up in a scan. You could "go all the way" and replace your HVAC controls with a set that does not have the buttons for heated seats as well.

Do you never have a passenger in the seat? You need the sensor working so the bag will deploy in case of an accident

Well I want the sensor to work but I am attempting to install kirkey 55's and not too sure where to put the seat heaters or the sensor but I planned on wiring the airbag resistor so is that enough without the others plugged in or?

You need the occupancy sensor, seat rail sensors, and resistors for seat air bags connected for all faults to be removed. There is a different fault for each.

To be noted the occupancy sensor is only needed in the pass seat, you’re not installing the metal Bucket in the pass side are you?
