Removal of passenger seat

I took the passenger seat out of my 2008 Element without knowing you should disconnect the battery first. I plan on leaving the seat out. Is this going to cause problems with the drivers side airbags?
Thanks for any help on this.

I’m new to posting here. I’ve owned only E’s since 2004. Now prepping my 2010 for a 2 month road trip. Here’s a pic under the passenger seat. There are 7 connectors, 4 of which have to be released to free the seat from the wiring harness coming from the floor. From left to right, connectors 1,2,5, & 7. Does only one of those connectors need to be tricked into thinking the seat is still there? If so, which one? I am keenly interested in Chop_E’s bypass adapter.

Prior to considering removal of the passenger seat, I folded the seat back as far as it will go and slid it as far back as possible. I bought a twin bed frame from IKEA and cut it down to 25” width. It’s pretty comfy but I do give up a lot of potential storage with the passenger seat under the bed. Hence, my interest in Chop_E’s bypass. Here’s a pic of my work in progress.
