745i Air bag error code 9763

Hi,
I recently got an air bag error on my 745i, so I scanned it with INPA and got error code 9763 SSFA. I can't seem to find an answer for this, as some say that its the passenger occupancy pad, others say its an open circuit. Anyone familiar with what this code is, and what should be done to fix it?

Thanks

link works fine for me !!!

clicked it again, still doesn't work. I came across a thread that suggested switching off the occupancy sensor using NCS expert, but my question is would the airbags still deploy in an accident if I do that, or do I have to get the bypass adapter installed? The code is

Yes, they will deploy. Switching it of just disables selective deployment. This means if you crash rather than only deploying if there is actually a passenger there it will now assume there is one and deploy.

The bypass adapter in this way does the same thing, it removes selective deployment.

IDK if you guys can help me out with this, but when I opened the SSFA module in NCS Expert, I didn't find the "BELEGUNGSERKENNEUNG_FA" parameter. Is there a specific mode I need to be in to access the correct files? I searched in the FSW_PSW.TRC file, checked under both the CAS and LMA. Thanks
E65 Error 9763

I saw that Fatboy 613 was not able to find the varaiable "BELEGUNGSERKENNEUNG_FA" in the SSFA module. I have a 2004 745Li and could not find that variable in the SSFA module either, however I did find a variable called "ERKENNE_SBE1_MATTE_FA" which translates to "Recognize SBE1 Mat FA." The value in my car for this variable was "aktiv."

I coded the value to "nicht_aktiv" in the "ERKENNE_SBE1_MATTE_FA" variable and then cleared the error codes, the light went out and warning disappeared.

So far, no airbag light or drivers restraint warnings popping up but time will tell, it has been only a couple of days. In the past when I cleared the error code (without recoding SSFA) in a week or so the error would be back. I will be curious to see if this coding change fixed the error from reoccurring.

From what I can tell, SSFA module is driver's side, SSFB is passenger side.

Also from what I read online, this coding change only makes the occupancy sensor mat in the seat inactive, which causes the car to assume the seat is always occupied, thus airbags will always deploy in a crash. For drivers side this seems like a non-issue, but if you change coding in passenger side module, the passenger airbag would go off all the time in the event of a crash, even with a small child in the seat, or with nobody in the seat at all. Code at your own risk!

Thanks for the heads up, I will keep that in mind if any other occupancy mats go bad (hopefully not lol). I just got a bypass for $10 and called it a day. Better have the airbag go off regardless than risk having it not go off with someone in the passenger seat.

Glad you got it working. Which bypass module did you need? Was it the driver's seat you installed it on?

I read up & the info I found said that my 2004 745Li could use either a 2-wire or 4-wire bypass module, sounds like your car is a 2004 E65 also, so I was curious what it used as it is probably the same as mine would need.

Did you have to take the seat out of the car, or just move it up and forward all the way?

Thanks,

Mike
I got one similar to this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/BMW-PASSENGE...5E34-/282066132151?hash=item41ac739cb7&_uhb=1

I'm not sure if this is exactly the same one, but it is very similar. You can give the seller your VIN # and they'll confirm if it is compatible with your car or not. I installed it on the driver seat, I just had to slide it forward a little. There's a module underneath, you just have to disconnect the wire connected to it, and connect the bypass
