I know that warning lights are critical. Given On our 99 328i conv the airbag light came on. Service writer says it could be the seatbelt latch sensor or seat bottom sensor. They ask 120 to scan and possible 350-1000 to R/R respectively. They also say it could render the passive restraint system inoperative. This says fixit to me.
1.T or F
2. Is the scan tool used for this system available aftermarket and is it worth getting one(Service writer indicates it is a different scan tool than the one in the engine bay.
3. This sounds like a complicated repair...is it really?
I wanted to do a trnsmission service but dealer says it has a lifetime fluid and requires no service. T or F On one of the sites I visited about wanting to do this service I got conflicting info.Please advise
^ mines still on..... came on 2 weeks after getting the car.... not Nessasary fix.... As long as you feel lucky.... just dont hit anything or get hit....

Thanks for the numerous replies about the airbag light
Esprecially Dannyb...I could learn to love this light but this car is my wifes' daily driver and she will NTFOOM until I get it turned off. So I will buy this scan tool for SRS and get the service resettool to. Wish I was just getting the service tool only but..to be continued
Ouch and we just ordered the code reader. I guess we will be confirming this most common error if what you are saying pans out. ZDo you have some more info on this part. Name or code, actual location and what is involvrd in it?
