Passenger seat removal - Air bag light is on

I turned off the passenger side airbag
Then I removed the passenger seat to install a custom platform in it's place

There was one two wire connector under the seat that I dis-connected
I assumed it is some sort of sensor that senses if someone is sitting in the seat?
The wire went into the lumbar region of the seat which confused me further

I used a mutimeter to see if the two pins on the seat side connector had resistance
I get a reading under 1 ohm
I was trying to determine if it was a switch at the other end of the wire or some sort of sensor

So now the airbag light stays lit up all the time (see my image)

Searching for free wiring diagrams has yielded nothing
I did find a site where you can get a paper copy for $82

Can anyone shed some light on how that passenger seat two pin connector works?
I am trying to fool it into thinking the seat is still there and get the airbag light to shut off

My seats have that airbag tag on the sides
I thought that meant that it had the side curtain airbag

An airbag in the seat?
What does it do, launch you forward through the windshield?
Mine is a 2015 - 250 cargo van and it has the airbag tags on the side of the seats

I got it used at a chevy dealership a couple weeks ago
Not sure if the original owner ordered the seat airbags as a custom option?

I looked at the air bag simulators at this site

I wonder exactly what they are?
Maybe I will order one for $29 and see what's inside one
You can order drivers side or passenger side simulators

There's only two wires on my passenger seat and they lead to the airbag

There's 4 wires on my driver seat.
Two for the airbag and two go to the seat belt
