Airbag light "trick"

So I have a 2005 Quigley 4x4 Converted E250 with a 5.4

Currently I have an airbag light from the Drivers Seat belt Pretentioner, the previous owner put a different seat in it so I'm guessing it just doesn't agree. My understanding is that there is a "trick" to fool the system into thinking its fine. Anybody aware of how it works?

I unplugged the seat harness and reconnected it while the van was off and it made my airbag light stop flashing.

I either removed the bulb or covered with electrical tape. Been a while and I've flushed cache since then...
