    I have an infant car seat installed using the latch system and I keep getting rear seatbelt warning - anyone know a fix to disable the alert that is safe?

    Connect the seatbelt. You could just connect it against the seatback, Or use it as a fall-back helping hold the car seat in place.

    Ok - but does having the seat belt connect change the logic for deploying airbags?

    There is only an upper/side curtain airbag in the back, and if it were to deploy, would do so regardless of seat belts or occupancy in the back.

    That is typically only for the front seat passenger air bag. Seat belt or certain amount of weight in the seat will enable the airbag.

    Yeah I connected the seatbelt running the strap behind both car seats.
