Mein Auto: BMW 540i
Vehicles concerned:
E38, E39
Manufacturing period:
E38: Start of series production until January 2002.

Procedure:

1. Connect BMW diagnostic system (DiSplus or GT1) to the vehicle.
2. Read off fault memory.
The following fault codes could be stored in the fault memory of the airbag control unit, depending on manufacturing period and model:

E38, E39 to March 1999

^ "05 - Driver-side belt tensioner triggering circuit"
^ "06 - Passenger-side belt tensioner triggering circuit"
