airbag light

  1. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi all, I recently purchased a 2003 BMW 330xi as a project car, and I am fairly new to the scene. I've got a few questions, and any tips would be greatly appreciated. 1. I have the airbag light on, and need a way to check the codes. My WIFI OBD2 reader didn't work so I was looking at a K+DCAN...

    My 01 325 touring has been showing the airbag light intermittently. The light goes off if a light weight or heavy weight (a person) is in the passenger seat. For periods of up to one week, the light is off all the time...normal. This leads me to believe the problem is either a bad...

    Hi everyone, hoping someone can help: I purchased a Passenger Airbag Seat Occupancy Sensor bypass emulator, plugged both parts into the correct female inputs and tried to reset the lights using a Creader VIII - unfortunatlely didnt work with the ignition key on or off (car not running). I...

    Hi all, My blower motor went out two weeks ago so I thought that I would go ahead and take on the job which wasn't too bad. After getting everything put back to together I noticed that the BM worked now but almost nothing else does and the airbag light is on. Radio, speed odometer etc all don't...

    I drive an 07 328i automatic. My airbag light came on after turning on my car. It says restraint malfunction. No one was sitting my my passenger seat. I scanned the code I just wanted to verify with someone who has run into this problem that changing the tensioner would fix the problem. Thanks

    If anybody is in or around Los Angeles and his or her airbag light is on, I have a device that will read the issue and also reset it. Hit me up if you need assistance.

    After flashing the ACSM2 of my BMW I3 with the actual Software I have the problem that I can not lock the Airbag. Now I have a constant flashing Airbag light and error code stating that Airbag is unlocked. To lock the airbag I deleted all DTC (fs_loeschen, is_löschen), reset the ACSM...

    Before anyone wags a finger at me, I have searched triad, and read many of the threads. Yet each one has a slightly different set of symptoms, and a few possible solutions. So here I am...with my flavor of triad. It's a 2010 X3, under 80,000 miles, and we've been plagued by a sporadic condition...

  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Hi, I have a 1997 Z3. I'm new to the forum! The "airbag" light is lit up red on my dash, even though the airbag never deployed. My seat belts are rather loose and don't tighten back. A mechanic says the seat belts are causing the problem with the red light on the dash, and the only way to fix it...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    My problems started when my headlights went out. I got the symbol on my dashboard before I figured out the main problem. I searched the owner's manual and service manual for the symbol on my dash and found it was the lights. I troubleshooted the headlights, by pulling out the bulb and...

    I installed a JVC stereo in my 2004 BMWX3 using a wiring harness I purchased at Best Buy. It was pretty straight forward, every wire being the same color, except there were a couple additional brown wires on the radio, which were not on the harness. I put the radio into place using a dash kit...

    Soo, just like the title says...my 2006 325I seat belt and airbag light came on and wont go off.. Long story short, i had something under the seat that i'm fairly sure triggered it... I've been looking at a bunch of different diagnostic tools that are all like 300 bucks +.. I came across an...

    Hey! So after tons of reading and browsing different diagnostic and error code reset tools i must say i'm pretty confused... At this point in time i think my best bet is to order the OBDII Inpa cable and use the Inpa software as i am not made of money lol...Will this solution work for me...

    I have a 1999 528i SE, the other day just after dropping a front passenger off the SRS lamp came on. I suspected the usual occupancy sensor mat. I purchased a B800 SRS scanner and reset tool. The code given was Table 38 Code 01 - Internal ECU Error. So i thought I would reset the system...
