When I installed '03 SVT seats into my '05 ST, I had to swap the '05 side seat air bags into the SVT seats. In addition, I had to swap the seat belt buckle, and the pressure sensing switch in the passenger seat cushion which activates the passenger side dash (front) air bag.
Keep in mind that when the air bag light comes on, none of the air bags work.
Good luck.
I could be wrong but i talked to a ford mechanic about the air bag light it just says that an airbag is unplugged I have recaros in my 2005 without the nifty sensor on the bottom on it and the light is on but he said it should still deploy, you just loose the feature of the weight sensing seat.
