you need to use a scan tool, you can buy then online, or otherwise youll have to take it to BMW or an independent BMW specialist. have you solved the problem that triggered the light in the first place though? the airbag light doesnt come on for no reason in these cars, its a bullet proof system

okay, it will be the removal of the wheel that caused it, you should be fine just to reset the light. unfortuantley to my knowledge there is no cheat way to reset it, but then i have never had an airbag E34 except for my 525iX, but i only had that for a few weeks

Take it to a dealer, pay them the money to reset it. That's basically your only choice unless you know someone with a GT1 or have a BMW independent shop near by. Or you can buy a GT1 with an IBM T30, but that will cost you upwards of $500 USD to do so.
