2002 BMW 745li gives a Fault in Pass-restraint system

So I have the message “2005 BMW 745li gives a Fault in Pass-restraint system” a friend of mine told me to replace the seat belt receiver, so I did. I used INPA and cleared the codes. Well the error came immediately back. I cleared them again and immediately the error came back again. Any suggestions, is it the pressure mat? I would really like to find a solution. Thanks.

2005 model year has a 10 yr extended warranty on the seat occupancy mat. I had mine replaced recently at no cost. There is a SIB on the topic.

Try a new battery and register it. Clear code. Low voltage throws that code. Happened to my 7

Ok, I'm convinced it's the mat. Does anyone know how hard it is to replace?

Could be the safety terminal from the battery change. I have heard of that throwing a code.

If im not mistaken, when the safety terminal has the problem it shows up with a drivers airbag fault message instead of the passenger.

It could be the control module. I had the same error on my car. 02 745li. After a new control module the software might need updated.

"Passenger" in this context means all occupants. Not passenger vs driver. So, the fault does not tell which the problem is on. It could b anything and you need to use INPA to find the problem. On my 5, it was the driver side door module. Everyone wanted to blame the seat sensor, but that was not the problem.

The mat is only $80 I'm going to buy it new after I replace the Alt. The Alt was $269 rebuilt. Thanks for the advice!
