I ended up putting 2006 GM integrated seat belt seats in my 98.5 ram. A little customizing required but fit well. Problem is the seat belt light now. I've tried jumpering out the pins on the plug, works for about a minuate, but then the light comes back on. I tore apart the old seat, found the there is just a set of contacts in there, that look like they close when the belt is extended. I am thinking that is what tells the computer that the belt is being used. I'm not sue if there is a sequence that needs to be performed, a resistence on the circuit, if i need a load on the seat belt enable circuit. A wiring diagram may help, but probably not. Hope someone has gone through the pain and has an answer on how to reamidy. Thanks
More than likely the seat belts work in conjunction with a seat belt module that you don't have.
Easiest solution would be to remove the bulb in the dash after first making sure the belts lock instead of just extending all the way once you're strapped in.
They may need the module to lock.

I'll try and get some pics up the end of the week. The materials of coarse don't match, looks good enough though and way more comfortable than my old broke down seats.
I do still have the seat belt box under center seat as I reused the center seat. the GM center seat that i got with the set is fixed in the up position and had no storage. Also the GM center was a few inch. narrower than the Dodge.
I'm going to pull the seat belt soleniods out of my original seats and hook the wiring. I really don't think the trucks that smart to want to see that load on the circuit but I've been wrong before.
I have to admit I have done the Chevy seats in my 98 also and I will say way better seat for comfort and wasn't all that bad to fab into the truck. I left the console out and have it open in the middle and I really like it like that, as long as the seats you got have the armrests built into the seat. Also have the seatbelt light on the dash but I tend to ignore it.

What did you do with the module that was under the center console/seat? The Dodge Q/C seat belt system doesnt use a simple open/closed-on/off switch at the buckle. The buckle switch is in fact a open/closed switch but the wires then go to a solenoid built into the retractor. Inside the retractor is a solenoid that locks the retractor. you cant simply leave the wires open, or shorted but if you want to install a 50-60 Ohm resister across the two wires then you should be good to go. Also if you unplugged or took that module out that was under the center console/seat then the light will come on too.
