    Hi,

    I hope someone can help me. I have a 2002 325i Touring and I need to re-set my Air Bag Light on the dashboard.

    I had disconnected the side airbag to adjust a sticking front passenger window. After reconnecting it having fixed the window issue the AIrbag Light on the dashboard now stays on. Having read a number of threads it was suggested that disconnecting the battery overnight may perform a ‘system reset’ – it did not. The light comes on at first point on the ignition goes off briefly and the comes back on and stays on.

    Does anyone live near SE London (Bromley) who has a Peake Diagnostic tool that could reset it for me. There is the possibility that there is something else wrong and it is just a coincidence that the light came on after my tinkering! I have checked the connections under the seat and they seem to be fine. I’d rather not go directly to BMW for obvious costly reasons!

    Kind regards,

    Damian

    I was under the impression that the Peake research tool will not reset ABS and Airbag faults?

    There's a dedicated one from Peake to diagnose airbags matey ...LINK

    OP, it may be better to go to a local specialist garage to have it reset. Not many members of here carry that tool. Someone with Carsoft may help you though.

    if you were living near heathrow,i would have offered to help with the srs/airbag reset.

    there is a peake tool which reads the codes and allows a reset.

    Hi,

    I was searching the forums with a with a similar airbag light reset/carsoft query - but didn't find a post with a 'definitive' answer.

    I have a 1997 E36 coupe and my airbag light stays on.

    Would appreciate if anyone can advise on the following;

    1. Can carsoft code read/reset the airbag light/circuit?

    2. Is it a good system to purchase?

    3. Does anyone know a good supplier (cheap) for replacement passenger seat sensor mats?


    Just want to check before placing any orders.


    Thanks,

    Mark.

    There is, go to an independent specialist or BMW dealer and have it done OR purchase the required tool to do the job

    .

    looks like that is a good tool on ebay in the link above, provided it does what the seller says and is not a pirated version.

    peake research tools are also good ,but there is one for engine faults and another for the aibag sytem-they are expensive though-over a £100 each.
