Could you also just remove the switch and connect the wire ends - or leave open, depending on what the "belt fastened" switch state is?
I'm reluctant to do any even minor mods for one more year (when the warranty expires). Shame it is not as easy as my Subaru - just turn the key switch on (but don't start the engine) , fasten and unfasten quickly 20 times in 30 seconds, turn the key switch off.
Curiously, the only mod I did do while it was a lease was to disconnect the "noisemaker" behind the grille (US DOT requirement for 2016 and newer EV's I think). Before returning the lease, (but got a reasonable offer way below the residual from the dealer so I bought it), I reconnected the noisemaker, but the noisemaker no longer makes any noise. The SAM seems to have it's tendrils around the operation of even the most superficial accessories...
