Swapped seats, now air bag code is thrown

Hi t here I have a 2006 Cobalt SS and I swapped in leather seats from another car - leather - but there's no air bag connectors on the leather seats. How can I make this right? I can sub in the old seats and plug them in, and the code will disappear, but I really want the leather jobs.

You can pull the sensors and pressure pad out of the passenger seat and transfer it all over to the new seats.

Thanks!

The reason I ask is because I'm spooked by the computer, so it's hard to know what's going to make this beast throw a code or get pissy.

I just had a look and I can see why you say patience. It looks like they've used rivets to the air bag box. So I'm drilling these out? I must have the problem wrong - I'll bring the chair indoors and have a good look around.

Is there a how to thread - I tried the Google but not much - I'll try you tube now. Yeah it's too huge a job for now.

I can't get a pic because the seats have been re installed.

There's a black box 3 x 5" under the seat....longer wire attached to the car. The box is riveted to the underside of the seat.
