Question: What is the part number of the PSS module? Can a disable (jumper) the module so the light does not come on?
Expert:  Super mechanic replied 1 year ago.

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site.

You wouldn't' be able to bypass the seat sensor without disabling the airbag system. There have been some common issues with the PPS sensors on them.

Do you know what trouble codes are setting?

No I do not know the trouble codes.

I see, thanks.

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

It seems that by hitting the seat it makes the light go out there is a definite issue with the PPS system or sensor.

Please allow me to post a link to a factory service bulletin on it, thanks
