Installation instructions – seat occupancy sensor emulator – Fiat Stilo

Fiat Stilo - mat emulator installation

1. Turn the ignition OFF.

2. Locate the seat occupancy sensor connector under the passenger seat mat – grey 3-pin connector with 3 wires:

  • white (signal)
  • brown (GND)
  • red (+12V)

3. Disconnect this plug and plug in the emulator instead.

After installing the emulator, the fault code often disappears automatically and the airbag / SRS indicator should go out. However, if the SRS warning light remains on after turning on the ignition, the code must be erased using the appropriate diagnostic software.

If the fault code returns, you may need to clean the plugs and contacts on the emulator-car installation connection using a contact spray for electronics – in Fiat this is a common problem.

Please remember that after fitting the seat mat emulator a car computer “sees” a passenger seat as occupied by an adult – the airbag will always work in case of any accident. Therefore, you MUST NOT transport children in baby car seats in the front seat.

Still any problems with the installation? See our video.
