Passenger Airbag Faulting after getting Windows Tinted

I just had Huper Optik installed today, and it looks really good. I also got them to do the Sunroof. Anyhow, problem is now that my passenger side airbag has faulted... Could this just be due to water that could have made its way into the wiring?

My passenger Airbag stopped working also on my 4 week old 325i. I took it into BMW and they have to replace the whole celing control unit that houses the control for the ambient lighting, sunroof and reading lights. I didn't notice it before, but the sunroof doesn't work either ... tech said it the airbag was working, but the senor control is located in that ceiling mount. When that mount went bad, the airbag light and warning on navi screen came on.

THey had to special order the unit and it's two weeks before it gets here.

They said no issue on driving safety as the airbag was fully functional.

I don't know if this is what you're seeing also ... but I'd take it into the service center pronto in case it is a true airbag failure .... you'll want it to deploy if you have an accident.

Thanks for your response... I imediatelly went outside and looked into everything you mentioned...

1. Sunroof - OK
2. Reading lights - OK
3. Ambient lighting - OK

I'm sorry to hear about your problem, but it looks like it's a different issue.

maybe it's just a coincidence

I'd still recommend an immediate trip to BMW. You don't want to risk the airbags not working correctly.

Just A thought .....Check and see if they didn"t steal the Air Bag???? I heard of this from a body shop,,,Some shops will steal them to sell you back your Air bags and parts!!

The tint shop could have broken the air bag seat pad by keeling on the seat. It happened few times on the E39 message board. Take it to the dealer for diagnosis.

Well I brought it to the dealer, and they had it fixed within a couple of hours. I didn't have time to ask what was wrong, but I will call back and ask out of curiosity. I'll let you guys know what I find out.
