After market seat cover

I purchased seat covers for my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee and while installing them I have to headrest out, but there is a wire attached. Seats have airbags and I am assuming this wire is connected to a sensor, what am I looking at if I just unplug it?

You probably want to go to the GRAND Cherokee web site.
I have a Cherokee and it does not have the wire to the headrest.
Seat covers need to be compatible with the air bags in the seats.
I just use a blanket with reinforced holes for the headrest, that way the seat cover does not interfere with the air bags.
Lots of luck.

You have active headrests. The wire is used for moving the headrests forward in a crash to protect your head and neck from whiplash.
