while driving down the road today in my wife's car which is a 530i the seat belt light popped on. It said something like your passenger restraint system malfunction (maybe not word for word) it just came on out of nowhere. Whats weird is that nothing or no one was in the seat when this happen.Can someone please give me feedback on what I can do to fix this.

thanks.

It happened to me. I was hoping it wasn't the expensive seat mat sensor but it was. Pain in the ass to replace.

Try clearing the codes if you have access to a scanner/reader.

If you can read the code, see if it is indeed the sensor.

I replaced the sensor at an indy. Issue had been a recall item with some VINs and different models but not others. Go figure.
