2020 Hiace Van rear seat removal issue


Recommended Posts

My folks have just picked up one of these. I know ugly AF, but at least they got the bumper sprayed to match the rest of it...

The major issue is that apparently they can't remove the rear seats without creating issues for the curtain airbags in the rear. The reality is that the seats in the rear is a once or twice a year kind of thing and it will be used as a trades van 99% of the time.

Can we make up a plug to fool the airbag computer into thinking the seats are still there? Or is it a little more complicated than just detecting that the seats are occupied?

Cheers, Will
