Racing seat installation

Asked by Jun 16, 2008 at 04:10 PM about the 2001 Ford Focus SE

Question type: Car Customization

Now in a Focus, the factory seats have a special weight sensor that coordinates with airbag deployment.  Take those out and the air bags can deploy with or without warning, so I have heard.  So how do you get past that?  Can you order special seats with the same sensor, or can you even deactivate the weight sensor features in the seats?

I think this is a topic on this from another forum, but I thought it was only on the more recent model years that they started doing this? http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=100625

yeah, it's only the newer models, must've added it in the 05's or later, cause the 00-04's were pretty much exactly the same, with a few exceptions.
