It is indeed, thanks from California!@unclejunebug I see this is your first forum post, so welcome to the forum from Oregon! :biggrin:
I don't have experience with the SJ, '14-'18, but I do with the SG, '03-'08. If the seats are removed, the SRS - supplemental restraint system diagnostics will fail, so the airbag light will be on. I'm under the assumption the airbags will not deploy when there is a SRS diagnostic failure.
► Warning! - disconnect the battery before disconnecting or reconnecting any connectors associated with the SRS system, they are usually yellow in color.
I have removed the passenger seat to haul long lengths of lumber. The airbag light was lit & I assumed the SRS system was inoperative.
Once I reinstalled the passenger seat, the SRS diagnostics passed & the airbag light went out.
Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate the quick responses! We're doing the install tomorrow so this is very helpful. The difference between what he has now and what he'll have after we're done will be night and day :icon_cool:Well it's OK in my MY'03 Foz and my 2010 Mitsubishi Triton ute. I've moved them both around the yard sitting on a milk crate.
