It's been a few years so I am hoping a new solution is available. How can you defeat the passenger airbag sensor? Do I still need to find a junkyard seat or has anyone come up with a more elegant solution?

+1 There's a U-Turn harness by Works Bell but I'm not sure if it's a plug n' play solution vs. the OEM sensor.

That is for the seat airbag, the POS is for the passenger airbags in dash, side curtain, etc

The U-turn is to get the sensor to think there is someone in the seat...the sensor is needed to tell the car that the sensor is there.

That's the annoying thing. If you goto ebay there are "electronic boxes" that mimic the sensor, but the last time I looked there wasn't anything for out year of cars.

I would look again...maybe in between naps from the turkey meal :)

Let me know if you find one that works...if I spin or hit a big bump the sensor trips and I get the flashing light on the dash. Its not a big deal but I have to do the reset procedure every time I pull into the pits then....

I found a 370z POS on Ebay for 50 bucks that was already removed out of a seat,the connection pins are the same for the GT-R.

I just laid it under the passenger Sparco seat cushion.

It and the Bells U turn harness works great.

The only problem I have with my Sparco seats is that the passenger seat sits about 3/4 of an inch higher than the drivers side.

 

I'm gonna have to see if the Sparco base can be cut and fabricated to get the seat a little lower.

Oh, and you don't need the u-turn, there are other companies that make the resistor. I found mine on ebay too

Curious about this too. Putting in a race seat into my passenger side... can always buy a used weight sensor, but this seems like a more simple option

I just got it in the mail but the car is still down so no easy way to test it at the moment.

Yes but we would have to also pull my other resistor out too. Unless you bought that!?

The one for the G37. They are all the same I think. On some old threads they mentioned
That the passenger sensor from a G37 worked so I thought that would be a good one to pick from the website. I'll take a pic of it when I get home.

Sounds good, I believe you're right about the plugs being the same since the weigh sensor are identical. I'll probably order one as well.

Did you also get two bell u turn harnesses? I tried using the 2 ohm resistors, but it kept getting loose.
