    As the title says. I get no error in the srs but the light does not turn off. Swapped an airbag on accident so I understand why it's on. How do I turn it off? Can I simply click reset system in the srs without doing damage? Or do I need ista/inpa?

    Hi - My E46 330ci Convertible was recently off the road for around 4 months for some much needed repairs. Whilst off the road I decided to remove the battery from the car, when fitting the battery back up and taking the car for a short test drive, everything was fine, then after turning the car...

    This quicky bypass was created & posted by papu84 in 2011. it can be built in 10 minutes, & worked the first time for me. Papu84 has it right. How happy I was to see the seat-belted Red tumor disappear from my dashboard. On my Coupe I didn't need to code anything .. the light went out on the...

    Hey, I have a 2005 325Ci convertible and I've had an annoying problem and can't get a solution to it. My seatbelt sign is always on in all scenarios except when I fold one of the seats to get access to the rear, it flashes. From what I heard the flashing is normal in convertibles (and maybe...

    I got an airbag light that won't go away after resetting with INPA. I recently changed my battery so I thought clearing error would fix it but apparently not. I have a 2001 E46 320CI and the error I got is: 1 Ignition circuit ZK0 / airbag driver stage 1 Error frequency: 1 Error not present...

    So I disconnected the battery , took the stock steering wheel off (which includes the airbag) and installed my new one, (I have not bypassed the airbag light or plugged the horn in yet. When I was reconnecting the battery (ground) it sparked (not sure if that means anything). I’ve checked the...

    I checked my side airbag because of a high resistance code . It came out without undoing the locking clip. It looks very sketchy, like it got flattened, or teared. Does this look normal for a 16yr airbag or should i just change it?

    Hello all. I recently installed E63 M6 (super comfortable) seats in my E46 330xi to replace my comfort seats but it triggered an airbag light. After running the code it's a seat occupancy detector code. I've only heard a few suggestions that buying a passenger seat occupancy mat bypass could...

    Hello, Back again - I have used INPA to scan my SRS module, and I'm greeted with an error code 2. I have installed a new seatbelt tensioner (my previous one wouldn't always lock in the seatbelt) and the error still persists. Hopefully I can explain this properly: This is my old seatbelt...

    I took my nearly pristine 2002 330i to the dealer to have the driver's airbag replaced because of a recall that apparently applies to all e46s. The old one was a glossy black that matched the rim and the rest of the steering column. The new one is a dull dark gray and I really hate the way...

    Hey guys, hoping you can help. My pre facelift 330ci (July '01) has been sitting for about a year while I slowly rebuilt the engine. Finally got it in and running and its ready for inspection so I can get it on the road again but the airbag light is on. When I scan it the code changes from 01 -...

    Hi I have an airbag light on in my 2000 E46. I have plugged in my laptop to try and read the fault code to understand which sensor might be at fault, but can never connect to the airbag ECU. When using INPA I get no response from control unit as an error (see copy and paste of the error readout...

    Hi everyone, I've been lurking for a while using the DIY pages here quite successfully. Ok a weird one. 318i 1999 M43. I'm driving at 100km/h on cruise, and the airbag light comes on. Turn off cruise. Airbag light goes out. Now whenever I cruise, airbag light comes on within 20 sec. If I...

    Hi. I recently whent to a local workshop to delete a airbag fault code in my dashboard. (while gluing one of the vapor barriers in place, I unpluged the right front-door airbag to remove the door panel. bad idea...). The code reader was unabel to comunicate with my car. Tried both the obd port...
