What are you going to do about the SRS light in the dash? You have air bags in your 9-3 seats

The 99 base 9-3s have airbags in the seats? I thought they were in the door panels? Probably why the seats are so damn heavy lol. Ive seen it done before by nick t and a few others. Guess i have to call one of them or if anyone else has some suggestions?

You can use resistors if you don't want the airbag lights to turn on all the time. Not sure what the part numbers for those are but I think I read in another thread that they can be bought from SAAB. The thread is pretty old, not sure on what forum it was either; you'll need to do a search

If you dont have a way to trick the car into thinking the airbags are still there the airbag system does not work properly. Dont forget that.

I'm fairly certain the front bags and seat belt pretensioners would still function properly even if the airbag light was lit for an open circuit to the side airbags.

Too bad you didn't post this a month ago, I had some spare black seats.
I still have some spare tan leather manual seats as well if you are interested.

The components may function properly, but the system as a whole may not. Bags may not fire when they are designed to, etc. I know this is the case for at least some other manufacturers.

Dont have the power. Heats nice but honestly its not a big deal either way. I also hate the leather. Sticky in the summer and cold in the winter, less upkeep and i like fabric better. I have a set of viggen seats but i would have to convert to power seats and they weigh a ton. Im semi-converting the interior from tan to gray. Im taking out the back seats and was looking for some front replacements. I have most of the other parts as well.

Ended up getting these for $100...Hopefully they work out.



Any other suggestions on the install especially regarding the Airbag and sensors? I know a resistor has been mentioned. Anyone done an aftermarket seat install and care to share what you did? Thanks for the replys!
