Default Front pass seat removed - help needed in turning airbag light off and seat belt alarm

I built a basic wooden platform in my 2014 WRX to do some extended car camping. I removed the front passenger seat in order to get enough space to be comfortable while laying down.

After removing the seat the airbag light is illuminated on the instrument cluster. The passenger airbag is off according to the message located next to the clock in the center of the dashboard. The seat belt alarm is going off also.

Wondering if there is an easy resistor or jumper bypass for both the airbag light and the seat belt alarm? Thanks in advance!

So I ordered the 3.3ohm resistor for the airbag connector. Hopefully that works. Still trying to figure out how to turn the seat belt alarm off.

If the latch is still installed, you could just run the belt under the board and buckle the seat belt.

I was hoping to find a solution that involved jumpers or resistors at the 6 wire connector. I would have thought a jumper would solve the problem since the seatbelt switch just needs to see a closed contact.

I tried putting jumpers in between the connections
of the connector for what I am assuming is the
seatbelt but that didn't turn the seat belt chime
off. The connector has 6 wires going into it. One
black wire, red wire, white wire, green wire, black
with a white stripe, and red with a black stripe. The
connector has 6 female connections. Any ideas
how to turn the seat belt and alarm off if the seat is
no longer there?

So I put the 3.3ohm resistor in and it didn't not turn the airbag light off. Back to the drawing board...

I think you need to fool 3 different circuits: the airbag, the seatbelt receptacle, and the seat occupancy sensor, otherwise you will keep getting a fault

That sounds about right

Do you know where I might be able to find a wiring diagram for the 6 wire connector?

Iím not sure, as I have the body style that came before yours. If you canít find it online, can you try to trace the wires on the seat side of your connector and figure out which goes where? (Assuming your still have your passenger seat)

I was able to get the seat belt chime to turn off via the procedure where you click the belt buckle in and out of the locking mechanism 20 times.

Now the only thing left is to get the airbag light off. I wish the 3.3ohm resistor would have taken care of the airbag light but it looks like I need to figure out this 6 wire connector. I still have the seat so I'll take a look under it to see what I see but a wiring diagram of the connector would answer all of my questions. I don't think looking at the wires under the seat will help me bypass the wiring in the connector that is in the car.

Been having a hard time finding a wiring diagram for the circuits in this 6 pin connector under what use to be the front passenger seat. If there are any Subaru techs out there that could help a brother out with a nice screen shot of the Subaru wiring diagram for this connectors associated circuits that would be greatly appreciated.

After doing the seatbelt buckle chime bypass procedure it's much more pleasant to drive the car without the buzzer going off every minute. The airbag light is still on and it may stay that way if I can't get a wiring diagram to figure out how to fool the module that handles the circuits associated with the front passenger seat.I wish I still had access to Alldata

These are from the 2009 FSM, but I doubt very much they changed before the refresh in 2015.




I haven't checked, but you can probably find your service manual on jdmfsm.info.
