Airbag light stays on constantly

Hi Everybody,

I am new to this forum and have a question for you all!

Recently my airbag light came on and stays on whenever I start my car. After several hours of investigating I found a red wire hanging loose from a wiring harness.

It seems simple to connect however I think I need to take the seat out to connect it back into the harness. There are a number of wires connecting to the harness as the seats are electrical. So I wondered if anyone had any advice on how I should go about this, and what precautions should take to ensure I don't activate the airbag.

Thanks all in advance
BimmerIsh

Welcome to the Werkz.....

1st, You will need to disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery, then you can remove your seat.....& make your repairs, after the seat is reinstalled & all the electric connections are reconnected then you can reattach the negative cable....unfortunately you will need a SRS reset tool to check & clear the Airbag light.....
