George- There is an airbag weight sensor for the passenger seat that shuts off the airbag if the passenger weighs less than XX (80?) lbs. Do not know if it is possible to move it or shut it off. It appears the sensors were not implemented until Assembly Number 69895, so look and see what yours is.
The sensor package is a bit over $1000 from Ricambi, but not sure how you would adapt it to aftermarket seats. Contact Recaro and see if they offer one with the sensor, I guess, or find a set of the factory racing seats. Another option is that some electrical genius could probably design a simple shunt for you that would show the seat always full or always empty, depending on who you think will sit there.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
