    I had a known fault (diagnosed for free during service) on my E39 2002. Passenger side occupancy sensor. Decided to DIY and installed the bypass module (about £15).

    The Airbag light did not go out so I needed the reset tool. After some searching it seemed the only one mentioned here was the PEAKE SRS reset tool. I tried bidding on second hand ones but couldn't get one for under £80, and new ones were more still.

    In the end I purchased a B200 BMW SRS scan reset tool, made in china by these guys

    Bought through a popular auction site and delivered to my door for £46

    The tool correctly displayed the fault code and also successfully reset the SRS light.

    Comes with the newer under dash OBDII connector and the older circular one for earlier cars.

    Seems like a good option for one off or infrequent use.

    Just thought this feedback would be helpful.

    Good job

    Just did the same to mine today but made the bypass unit from components I already had in the garage.

    My light went straight out after I'd fitted the bypass, I disconnected the battery for about 20 mins before I started work and then reconnected when finished. I also cleared the stored code with INPA and my laptop.

    Since the airbag light was intermittant, I also hoped it would go off on its own. I also disconnected the battery before installing the bypass. Was dissapointed it didn't go out!

    Unit is also known as the Memoscan B200 (that is the brand on the bag it comes in)
