    Hello there.

    My airbag light has been on for a while now and i need to sort it for next year.

    Before changing the sensor i would like to reset it.

    Can anyone recommend a genuine tool to reset airbag light on a 318is E36 please ??

    Kind regards.


    Rob

    take it to a garage mate they will reset it for a small charge, but you should replace the sensor first as the light will just come back on anyway

    Look into an Autel service tool if you don't want to go the software route.

    if you leave the battery off for around 30mins it would reset i think but if there is a fault it will come back on after a short drive
