Front seat bottom cushion removal video

This is a youtube video on removing the front seat bottom cushion. Its for a Cherokee, but we all know they are the same.
The parts are the same left and right. So this guy swapped out his driver side which had a worn out bolster.


I did not see any wires for the passenger side airbag sensors in it. Anybody else see them?

I swapped out the cloth seats in my 2006 Commander for leather seats from a 2007 or 2008 can't remember which but I do know the Passenger seat on my 2006 had the system you have to calibrate to sense someone is in the seat and the new seats didn't.

Scanners for seat calibration

I am considering just going with a scanner. I have spotted 2 on Amazon.
Autel ML 629 and a Foxwell NT630 Elite.
Has anyone used one?

A couple of connectors changed because of the seats being heat & memory, but the basic wires were still there. I never did get to hook up the heat and memory, traded it in on a diesel Grand Cherokee.

I'll ask a silly question; Calibrate your seat for what exactly?

The passenger seat weight sensors are calibrated. This is part of the system to turn off the airbag for lighter passengers like kids. If it goes out of whack, the "airbag off" light comes on full time. Some scanners will perform the calibration and turn off the light. If the system had a failure, the scanner can indicate which one. Beats going to a garage or dealer.

I tried the diy fixes, reset all the connections, and I still get the light.

Funky failures designed by Chrysler engineers. Standard equipment.

A lot of dealer techs buy their own Starscan or Witech scan tool, I borrowed a friends to calibrate mine.

1. 40-50 pounds max. first weight
2. 10 pound second weight
3. 40 - 45 pounds weight third weight

The last step requires all weights together on the seat (50+10+40) for total of 100 pounds
