25 Bucks for a jumer wire is a bit extream. Buy a matching plug and make your own or just splice the two wires together.
Ya that's what LBR was talking about doing to ours to bypass the sensor...:)

seatbelt jumper plug

All:
This is the same plug as the hood light connection under the hood of many chevrolet vehicles (88-98 trucks for sure). Go to the junkyard and pick one up, splice the wires together and use some shrink tubing....dunnzo

This will keep you from modding your factory harness and potentially screwing your warranty.

Why not just take the latch off the seat belt and then connect it? Then you could just tuck it down between the seat and the engine compartment where it's not seen.

if you take your seat beat apart you will see the switch. You can either remove the spring and tape the lever down or put a small zip tie on it and your good to go

Why can't you get the male end of a seat belt and plug it into the other end won't that do the same thing. Been doing it on vehicle's for a long time.

I agree it can be a pain but...I have been an EMT for the last 5 years and have seen what can happen when people don't wear there seat belt so I think I will get use to wearing mine.

I was a fire fighter for 20yrs. and thought I'd seen it all but then you roll up on a scene and see something new to add to your list. No matter how much you try to explain what you have seen sometimes it takes a bad experience to get people to understand. You just hope it scares the hell out of them and not something worse. Never used my seat belt in my personal vehicle until I went to my first MVA and seen first hand the damage to a persons body not wearing a seat belt compared to the person in the other vehicles wearing there belt. Usually it's weeks of recovery compared to months and sometimes years if at all. Two seconds and getting used to it is a lot easier than months/years of rehab. In the end it's everyone's person preference and will have live with the results.

Well I do not think most of us on this site are looking at not wear seat restraints, but we want to use a racing five or six point harness in place of the factory supplied three point. For me being a paraplegic the simpson six point harness is great for keeping me in place which also makes it easier to control my commander in ruff areas.

FYI ............I've just reread this thread and want to keep a misconception from possibly happening for peeps reading from hereon....

This bypass for the seat belt sensor is NOT so we can drive not belted in ....the bypass is for when we convert from factory belts to aftermart harnesses only.... The driver's seat belt latch switch must be triggered in some fashion....otherwise the ECU will limit your speed to 10 MPH until it knows your seat belted in.

This thread is only about the aftermart harness upgrade from factory belts.....

Well said. Now just take the thing apart and zip tie the switch down

Okay, an alternative that i used was to just take the male part of the belt clip off the belt and plug it in. I then just tucked it under between the seat and the center console.
Of course Im using a 5-point harness system as a replacement.
