Hi All.

My E91 popped up the 93B3 passenger airbag stage 2. I cleared the fault & it dually returned, i cleared it again at a further point in time & it stayed away for approx a week....

Now the code will not clear. If you unplug the airbag the code 93AB Passenger airbag stage 1 also appears.
Plug the Airbag back in & clear the codes only the 93AB code clears !!

Does this actually sound like a Genuine airbag Fault ? Or is it a Controller Ecu issue ?

Difficult to Decide either way...Buy Airbag ? Buy Controller ? Buy Buy Monies :rofl

Thanks

My code reader i not that intelligent ☹ its only a C110 Ebay special...

I got a Chap to Code out the passenger airbag. Even with this done the 93B3 dtc remains & will not clear ! Which made him think it was the Controller ! A few others on the Net have had the same where a Dtc will not clear & it ended up being a controller replace...

There are controllers on Ebay but how can you be sure they have no Crash Data on there ! After all they are from Breakers...
The Part number is allegedly 6977427 bosch, This was retrieved by the chap that coded the Airbag out.

He did say though that if you get the same part number they are plug & play �� This i dont believe as not all cars have the same options.

Cheers

Is the code for too low or too high resistance?

Hi there, I've just encountered the same issue on my E90 325i - how did you resolve this issue?
