did you take the seatbelt receptacle from the original seat and attach it to your aftermarket seat (and plug it into the connector under the seat)?

I am not 100% sure that you can "jump" these wires (meaning directly connecting them to each other). I believe to remember that you need a resistor to connect them but all of this is a bit vague in memory, maybe someone else remembers correctly.

nevertheless for my race seats I picked up two used receptacles on eBay (taking the original ones off the OEM seats is a major pain) and I plug them in when I switch seats. These receptacles pop up on eBay from time to time, they are usually in the $40 ~ $80 range.
This also gives you the added benefit that you can use your 3-way belts to/from the track
