BMW Seat Airbag Light Fix,
I've had a lot of questions from people about where to install the bypass i
made in my other video(found here
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2UqGJ_LK3Y) so i've made this video to show
you how i fitted it to an E46. Its pretty much the same for most other
BMW's and its very easy.
Simply tap the sensor you made, into the white and blue cables and tape
them up. Don't reconnect the old Blue and white wire plug as that will
cause the airbag light to come back on again. tuck everything away nicely
and if needed, use a couple of cable ties to make sure the wiring doesn't
get knocked by a rear seat passengers feet.
I had to use my INPA diagnostics machine to reset the airbag light as it
was a permanent one. If your airbag light is an intermittent one then you
will usually get away without needing to have the code cleared with
A little background on what this sensor is and what it does,
The occupancy sensor is a mat thats built into the seat and it tells the
computer if there is a person sitting there. If there are no passengers and
the car is crashed then it wont deploy the passenger airbags, only the
This sensor is well known for going bad and this is why it triggers the
airbag light. Unfortunately it costs upwards of 4-500 quid in parts and
labour to have the seat mat replaced but with this mod, the bypassyou made
(as per my previous video), or even bought of ebay etc will tell the
computer that there is a passenger in the seat at all times and will always
fire both passenger and driver airbags in the even of an accident instead
of firing just the driver one.
Making up this bypass is very easy and can be done very cheaply too.
As always, I hope you find this useful and feel free to rate it, ask
questions etc etc. :)

BMW e46 e36 airbag light / lamp - Solved (Easy DIY - SRS)
BMW e46 (323ci in this case) have à problem with the airbag, its a sensor
under the drivers seat that causes the airbag light to switch on. That
means your airbag probably is not working. Instead of beeing annoyed, I've
found a solution that makes that lamp to switch of. You have probably
searched a lot on the web about this problem but ended up with fake videos
or products you need to buy. There is no need for that. Do it your self
instead. I hope you like it and good luck.
Some functions may not work such as parking sensor, lights. It depends on
each and every model of your e46. Some of you think that this is not safe
due to the airbag will not work when the fuse is out. A message to you guys
is that, your airbag does not work anyway thats why the lamp is lid.
Here you can see a diagram over the Fuse box:
