    Hi Guys
    Been on the site for couple of months now, thought I better introduce my self.

    Just purchased a BMW 316i sport compact year 2000 its has some issues most of theme I fixed just one that's is haunting me which is air bag light. I purchased B800 SRS scan & reset tool the car not responding flashing E message, carried out some troubleshooting but car still not responding.

    This could be bigger job than expected would be grateful to some feed back to get this light out. The car is off the road at the moment

    The last BM I had was 323i 1985 great car didn't have all this electronic gizmo's

    Hi my names Johnathon! I'm also new to the forum, was wondering have you checked if there is occupancy sensor on the passenger side seat as on the e46 models this is a common issue. Hope this helps

    Hi Johnathon
    I haven't checked the passenger seat sensor thanks for that, just finishing of fixing the drivers side window the switch was disconnected as some one fitted the panel back with 2" screw which jammed the window

    Cheers Dave

    Hi! If it turns out to be seat sensor you can by a bypass switch that plugs into the harness for around £10 on eBay

    Hi Johnathon

    Just received the bypass bridge from a supplier on ebay, I wasn't sure if this was the problem as I have no idea what test to run, fitted the bridge and retested the airbag dash light still won't go out.

    Hi!
    You will need to have the error code reset on ecu for the airbag light to reset if you haven't already attempted this. As some of these require after bypass switch has been fitted.
