heyy everyone

i got in my car yesterday and drive it for a few miles to look at the dash and see that the airbag light is on (i believe it's the drivers airbag) - is this something that a novice can fix? or does it need to go to a BMW garage?

and also, the diagram on the dashboard displaying the car is telling me that my boot is open, i can't actually open it with the key(i can't hear the motor even go) and i push the release button under the lid anyway and nothing happens, however i can turn the key in the lock and open it, but no matter what i do the light is still there on the dashboard...would this be why my indicators aren't flashing when i lock the car too?

got a picture to follow



any help would be greatly appriciated

has anyone else had this problem? - it all happened at once!

if its any help it's a 51 plate 2.0 318 coupe

thankyou in advance!

could be a broken wire where the loom enters the boot...or a problem with the micro switch in the lock itself.
tough one for you to diagnose...you could try a lock from a breakers...or engage an auto sparky
