530i BMW restraint system

New to forum but I was reading there may be a recall to get the restraint system malfunction fixed by a BMW dealership if the car is before 05, I have a 04 BMW 530i and was told before it would cost around a thousand to get fixed. Anyone with any help would be greatly appreciated - Tim

Who (dealer or indy) diagnosed the problem and gave that $1000 estimate?
What were the code(s)?

There are many parts that can cause that SRS error. The recall is only for the passenger seat mat sensor. If the diagnostic code doesn't correspond to the passenger seat mat sensor, then you will have to pay for replacing whatever that offending part.

Srs

Thanks for the reply, I believe it is the seat sensor mat, do you know what the recall number would be by any chance?
