    i have a couple of electrical related questions if anybody can help

    firstly while i was fitting my mfsw i looked under the steering column and noticed an earth connector with what seemed to be a missing cable. i may be wrong but just want to know what it is





    im still trying to resolve why my ecu cannot be read so im worrried incase there is any wiring issued or maybe previous owner tampered with car maybe to hide airbag lights etc?



    second question is ! do all the e36 airbag symbol on the dashboard light up and turn off after you fully start the car? oor does it only come on when there is a fault?
    on my car it does not come on so im not sure wheter its ans issue or not

    i have a short clip of my car starting to give you an idea of what i mean



    also my handbrake light does not work

    Airbag light should def come on at ign then go off straight away.
    Handbrake light is next to airbag so if someone removed one, they may have removed the other by accident?
    Easy enough to whip out the cluster, 2 torx screws (T10?) at the top then ease it out past the wheel.
