how to disable my seat belt warning light

howdy, I removed the passenger seat from my truck and uncliped the electrical connector that senses someone is sitting in the seat. now the airbag light is blinking. I used a paperclip to "bridge the two prongs in the connector and it still lit up. Will I need a resistor of some type???????????? or is the paperclip method not reliable??????? thanks p.s. I tried turning the airbag switch to off and its still lit up.

kalifornia,

What did you do to get rid of your flashing light ?

It would be interesting for other site members to know this.

Also, if you haven’t done anything yet, what type of switch is used in the seat, can you jump it ?
