BMW SERIES 3 E36 airbag light is on pls help

Hello guys I need help in getting a scanner to reset my airbag light. What happened was I took off the passenger seat so I can replace the switch on the power buttons while the seat was out of the car I started the engine (I know I should not have started it) and now I have the airbag light on. Did my research and it only needs to be reset. Any member here who has the scanner to reset it that maybe

They can only be reset with an SRS tool.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Bought 540i on tuesday joined bimmerfest today.

One week after I decided I need to buy a car I decided I needed an e39. One week after this I bought a 2003 540i in dark gray. It has the black interior M sport 6pd stick and cold weather pack. It was on sale for 12000 with 145000 miles. I test drove it thought 145000 miles and no service records would be too much and maybe i should find a 530i. Long story short I ended up buying it for 9000 after

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Transmission in D but wont shift out of 1st

Hello and new to this forum. After reading alot of these posts my son and i found alot of info about some of the items that have been wrong with car. Since we are DIYers we are looking for some more help.

Hello all new member here. I am currently looking at a CPO 2009 bmw 328i Xdrive with 9574 miles. The dealer is asking for 28485. I am planning to go and look at it but wanted opinion as to whether the price seems to be right. The car was a personal lease(atleast thats what the carfax says). Below are the features on the car (it has the premium package). Sorry for big post Also since it is gonna be

BMW SERIES 3 E90 E91 E92 E93 Why does 328 coupe cost more

Im looking into the 2008 328xi but Im not sure between Coupe vs Sedan. The base price of the coupe is 3k more than the sedan---why I looked at both specs (engine suspension safety warranty etc.) and they are nearly identical except for some differences in the dimensions and wheel sizes. The dealer I spoke with said something about the standard options are different (e.g. coupe comes with better headlights) but the website doesnt show this and I believe the site more than a dealer...

normalize the coupe and sedan prices the coupe comes out about 1K higher than the sedan -- after you add the fold-down rear seats Xenons and sport suspension to the sedans base price. (I am not 100% sure but I dont think headlight washers or rain sensor are std on the coupe -- they are in the cold weather and premium packages respectively). They are. I have a 328xi coupe. Heres the proof httpwww.bmwusa.comStandardConte...sDefault.aspx

Whats going on Bimmerfest World I am officially a proud (new) owner of a (used) bmw as of Monday April 23 2012 . Its completely stock with a good amount of miles under the hood.

people said they never really got to get a diagnostic done on it however it could possibly be just an airbag sensor. Honestly i have no idea what it is but my dilemma is - I do not want to purchase a new airbag sensor if I dont know thats what I need and find out it was just a waste of money after taking out the old one and installing the new one. - I do not want to waste 150-200 at the bmw

The reason I am commenting is that my car started the emergency blinkers immediately and I also got a message

The emergency systems trigger based on the measured severity of the collision. So it may turn on the hazards and unlock the doors but not trigger the battery disconnect or any airbags. However an airbag deployment will usually trigger everything else including the bmw

BMW SERIES 5 E60 E61 2006 530XI is the worst car

Dont get me wrong. I love driving the car. we bought it this past July and it has the balance of the CPO (which express in January). BUT since we bought it it has been in the shop every month (or seems like it). 1- replaced the battery because it left me stranded (with my kids) and had to jump it via AAA 2- alignment and 2 new tires (granted that could have happened regardless) 3- the main cable to

Thats why we bought the bmw

I dont know about cars sold for the Belgium market but in the US some (not all) cars had self-leveling suspension. This was made possible through the use of airbags. This is important not only for ride and handling but also to keep the headlights from shining into the eyes of drivers of oncoming cars. Some cars were fitted with two-axle air suspension while others had only single (rear) axle air suspension.

BMW SERIES 5 E39 Air Bag light just came on

I have a 99 528 IT. The air bag light just came on. Any thoughts of where to start looking for the problem thanks Mark

The sensor mat is expensive and a PITA to replace and there is no warranty it wont be damaged again. All you need is to kneel on the pass seat and it can be damaged again. And yes I think pass occupany mat sensor was designed for 2 reasons 1. To prevent the airbag from activating ( to save cost of repair) if no passenger is present but it is a mood point bc any accident that deploys the drivers front

BMW SERIES 3 E46 1999 323 I 4Dr Air Bag Light Stays On

My car is a 99 323 I 4dr and it has the air bag light on. I had a friend pull up the codes and it showed to have an 01 and 03 code present. He could not clear the codes for some reason. He has a Snap On diagnostic box with the European software so it should have cleared it out. The codes listed apparently are for no power and also an internal air bag module malfunction. Does anyone have any more info

BMW SERIES 3 E36 Problem with door locks...fuseactuator or what

Ok Ive had my 328i for only about three weeks now but I havent been able to lock my doors automatically since I thought it was just a fuse but I check under the hood for a blown one and didnt find any the lock button in my car does not work. everything else works fine (drive & pass seat sunroof and windows). I have to unlock and lock everything manually (which sucks). I just recieved my keyless entry

In my case the problem was Loss of ground when hooked to the diagnostic computer. Thats the shop toy not the code reader. Not a DIY in my case. I have old man winter to blame and I suspect a failed vapour barrier in the back door. There is also a drain in the rocker panel (Did not know that) that was plugged. Resulting in a pool of salt water under the carpet. And the ground is located under the carpet

BMW X3 E83 Service History

This post turned into a rant so just bear with me... The passenger airbag sensor is acting up so I went to our local dealer to ask if the recall had already been done on our X3 (we bought it used). I drove my other car and brought a sticky note with the VIN on it. The guy asks the see the car key to verify it was my car so I get the spare get out of my car and show it to him (not sure how looking at

that he didnt believe it was my car. He said they have a lot of people come in looking for service histories of cars that they dont own (but may be interested in buying for example). But most of all his vagueness and dodging my questions about the service history and the recall make me feel like I wasnt welcome there at all - maybe because I wasnt wearing a suit and driving a new 7-series I call bmwNA

Most of these terms include those that are VAGs own internal names andor wording jargon that comes from popular sites like ClubB5 (CB5) and Passat World etc. as well as general car terms that we use for cars other than those made by VAG.
