Question Can an existing error be removed from the system without actually fixing the problem?

I have an airbag error on my 2006 e90 that I do not want to fix, is there some software way that would fix my christmas-tree-looking dashboard?
The airbag error comes with a seatbelt icon which is always on AND an error sign. It's very annoying

I can get an OBD cable if I have to
Thanks

You can clear the error but unless you correct the problem it will come right back. AFAIK you can't disable sensors.

Which airbag is it?
or is it passenger occupancy sensor mat in the seat?

i think its the second one seeing as how the seatbelt reminder doesn't ring anymore when a passenger is with me with his seatbelt off

anyway all I want to do is remove the error from the dashboard I don't care about anything else

There was a recall for the seat mat sensor in the US. Not sure about other countries.
