sabbath130 - like Furious said, get the code read. peake research sells the tools, but if you are only going to use it once, it's probably better for you to get it read for you. although i think it unlikely that the burnout caused the srs light, of course i'm probably wrong. but anyway there are TOO MANY individual components in an srs system to just throw parts at it to try and solve the problem. one thing to note is that car washes have been known to damage the dme units in e36.
Brian325i - abs is a different story from srs. completely different controller units. srs CAN be reset. abs on the other hand, even if you do manage to "reset" it somehow, the light will come right back if the actual fault itself isn't addressed. some dealers will read abs codes for free. others may charge up to $100 (as will an independent shop).
srs code readers are cheap (less than $200).
abs code readers are not ($2000 & up). so it is worth your while to get the codes read. but also note that there are a few components of ABS (contrary to what the dealer will tell you) that CAN be serviced as a DIY. if you are so inclined, get the codes read and post a followup.
