Question Restraint Error disapeared on it's own??

I mean, I'm not complaining at all by any means, but i USED to have a Passenger restraint error that started about two months ago, and just this week, it just went away on its own. Just like that!

However, there are some things that were done couple of days before this happened. I disconnected the battery to inspect the Belt Tensioner, to see if maybe the harness came loose or something to cause the fault. I connected the battery back to see if the fault went away and it didn't. Then shortly after that, I connected my scan tool to clear all my faults. But the fault still remained. Two days later I get in the car to go to work, and I notice that there was not a second little "chime, chime" telling me there's a restraint error.

Has this happened to anyone before?

Mein Auto: Some Bavarian car outside
I cleared a restraint fault on an 05 745i and the fault came back 3 days later.
I told him it was the BST and he said okay. Mine went out after hitting
a pothole a few months back, I changed the BST, reset the fault and
it's been good since. Maybe you have too much resistance. Get it read in
the Safety and Gateway Module. Here is a general idea on how
it operates:

I wish I knew 100% if I replace the belt tensioner that it'll get rid of that error..... I'd hate to spend $200+ on a part that won't fix it.
