    Help with seats/airbags!

    after fitting new seats, the airbag warning light has come on. i assume thius means that the airbag is not functioning. i know the reason, its beacuse my seats were fitted with tensioners, that connect 2 the airbag and when u take out the seats un unplug the tensioners. is there any way i can solder a resistor or something in the plug to fool the car into thinkin the seats are still connected?
    I have a mk4 astra sxi

    cheers guys

    You just fit the tensioners on the new seats - you're supposed to do it before you turn the car back on. Thats why the light's come on. Just fit the tensioners, make sure the connection is good, and try disconnecting the battery for 15 minutes for the ecu to clear the error codes - I think there's also a way that you can reset it by turning the ignition on and off about 15 times - till it learns the seat belts are actually still there.
