Can I drive with passenger seat removed?

Hey all, my poor 987 is currently recovering from a bit of flooding under the passenger seat, caused by a clogged drain. I decided to remove the passenger seat so I could pull up the carpet and get more airflow to the underside. Prior to unplugging the seat's wiring harness, I disconnected the battery, as I understand that failing to do so will cause the airbag warning light to go on.
My question is, can I reconnect the battery while the seat is still out, and drive the car, or will this cause the airbag light to go on? I suspect it will, but I figure there's a chance it senses the state of the connector when the battery is connected.
Cheers,
Jon

This will trigger the airbag light.

Leave the carpet out and put your seat back in for now. It's only 4 bolts.
