Actually, the car is a "Bimmer."

You'll need to have the SRS scanned for a trouble code.

Beemers don't have air bags.

I got airbag light for a few days, it would not shut off .I check the wire coming from the passenger side seat, under the seat and clicked the connector together.
Air bag light stopped. Did not have to use air bag light reset tool.
