    TBH I just realised. I see at least 3 E36's a week and have never replaced an airbag module on one....

    Me three.....

    When I was checking the ZKE modules it said $--- uncoded so this would have to be coded too.....Curious now as thought the airbag ECU was an independant system...hence why the module is stashed away under the rear seats...

    Just had a look at my 95 Saloon, and my 97 Coupe.... And the Saloon doesn't mention about needing coding, but my Coupe does !!!


    The one on the left with orange stick is the one in my Coupe. The one on the right which is not plugged in is from the Saloon.


    Thats what the sticker says. Can you read what it says ?

    Strangely, both have different connectors ?!?! Not sure why that is ?

    The Saloon one doesn't mention about needing coding.

    It's probably due to one system can control other airbags if fitted, for example, if you want to get rid of the passenger airbag, you disconnect it, then re-code the module so it doesn't have a strop about an unplugged bag.
