Yes, your airbag light on the dash will be lit. I believe that the system is disabled without the seats plugged in, but somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

When I used my Sparco race seat in the car, I just put a sticker over the light. I was using a 6 pt. harness, so I didn't worry about not having the airbags, but that brings up the issue about the risk of using a race seat and harness without a roll bar, which definitely has some cons (ie rollover)

You'll get an airbag light. The fix is to place a 3.3ohm resister in its place. Although you should be safe with a 1/4 watt, I'd go 1/2 watt just in case.
