airbag switch, have a question

on the newer trucks it has an automatic deal that turns the airbags on or off. since i have expo seats now, im assuming the airbags are off because my airbag light is on in the guage cluster. any way to wire up the airbag switch from an older ranger? if not im just gonna take the light out of the dash and say screw it

its a pressure sensor that works off the weight of the occupant so if your expo seats dont have on you'd have to take the ranger seat's and install it in.

Hahaha that'd be so gnar. But the pressure sensor still had a connector with a few wires. There's gotta be a way to wire it up so it thinks it's getting pressure then wire that to an older airbag switch
