Can I just ask, is the airbag sensor connected to the seat belt alarm? I would like to deactivate the alarm but do not want to affect the airbag - is this possible?

Re: Deactivate seat belt warning alarm

All safety features are designed to work together but airbag will work with no seat belt but be warned serious injury can be done if an airbag deploys and you are not using a seat belt
