Chevy Seat Side Airbags


I'm considering getting rid of the NFE front seats in my Avalanche and switching to an aftermarket (Corbeau or similar) and am wondering about the airbags mounted in the sides of my front seats. Does anyone know if my computer will freak out if those airbags are no longer present/connected? If so, is there a way around it without having codes, lights, or the vehicle acting goofy?

Yes there are ways to trick the computer - on many cars I think its a matter of a resistor connected to the wiring harness? Probably should inquire on a more chevy truck focused forum....


Yes it knows their missing. You need a substitute resistor, same as what's used in doing diag. on the restraint system, except you'll need two of them. There's different values for different airbags.
