Replaced seat now code 4 airbag light

New to the forum. Not new to the focus! I have a 2000 se zetech auto. The recline handle on the drivers seat broke. The actual metal part that the plastic handle screw onto. Found a seat in a salvage yard. Took mine out. Transferred the wiring from my old seat to the new salvage seat. Everything went super smooth. Until I turned the car on. Now the airbag light flashes code 4. Nothing was touched except the wiring. I trid leaving the battery disconnected overnight but, no luck. Someone has to know what happened here! Please help! Thanks in advance. P.s. I tried using the search but no luck on this specific issue!

You have replace the belt buckle from the seat too if the car that you got the seat from was in an accident. There is a piston in the seat buckle , look at them and you will se the difference.

Hey thanks but I figured it out. Yeah I transferred all wiring and seatbelt to my new seat. What happened was one of the female terminals on the plug from the car was pushed in somehow and was not making contact. Disconnected batt then unplugged the seat fixed the terminal plugged back in reconnected batt and all is good!
