Default Please help! Swapped seats and now the airbag light stays on, Won't pass inspection

Hello all,

I swapped my cloth seats for Leather seats from a salvaged MPV.
Unfortunately the seats from a different year and airbag sensor wires (clamps) were different.
Since then the airbag lights stay on.
My van's inspection is due and they will not pass the car unless the airbag lights go away.

I have a 2004 MPV. Can someone please help me take care of the airbag light.
Does anyone know what wire is for the airbag sensor?
It's just a matter of connecting the car's wire-clamp (different style) to the wire clamp from the Seats (different clamp design).

Thank you

there is some trick to this but I cant remember it specifically. it has something to do with wiring a resistor into the harness. google search something like mazda airbag resistor seat swap. the protege guys were running into this with racing seat swaps a few years ago.
