Hi guys, I’ve come across these emulators to bypass the error code regarding seatbelt and air bags on my car.

Is it safe to install this? Should I make the next owner aware of the emulator upon resale? Any other caveats to advise on regarding this install.

it basically tells the air bag ECU the seat is occupied so in event of a crash the air bag deploys, so the system is tricked to always be on. Is it safe? Well I wouldn’t make a call on that because you also have to take in to account if someone used rear facing car seat in the front,fairly sure you are not allowed to these days but people still do.

hi thanks for your reply! We don’t have children so that won’t be an issue.
