Racing seats.

Are you able to install differnt racing seats into a 2013 se or will a light come on for the air bags? Can you bypass the light?

If you pull the seats you will cause an airbag fault unless you go with the Ford Racing Recaro seats.

It might be possible although it's not generally wise to run some resistors to bypass the resistance of the in seat air bags.

You can pull the sensor off the old seats and just hook them up and it will not make the air bag light come on.
