Help with AirBag Error 2005 745li
1 Attachment(s)

I recently had the driver side seat error pop up on the dashboard. I cleared all the codes and it didn't come back for a few weeks. I noticed it recently its started to come back every 5 days. I have managed to pinpoint the error in INPA to the drivers seat. Once you clear the error the light goes off. Here is a pic of the error. Please can someone help and establish what possibly needs to be replaced or done to resolve the issue.



PS is this possibly related to this

is it one of these possible sensors

Sometimes it isn't the sensor. I've had a few that we had to clip and replace the connector

thanks, I will check the connector. Is it the one going from the mat sensor ?

the harnesse side, going to the module for me. "Experiences may vary"

Just to add I did some test on INPA on the seat mat and I received an open circuit error. Does this mean the mat needs to be replaced ?

Keep in mind, most likely is the Passenger seat mat sensor , and it is covered under warranty since you vehicle is a 2005 , just had mine replaced under warranty and i believe all 7 series from years 05 up there's a 10 years warranty on this specific part .

Just spoke to BMW Canada, they have acknowledged and confirmed that it is covered. Got it booked in next week see if they honor it. I just had the passenger side go red on the airbag. Checked it with INPA and shows communication error and open circuit.
