I just purchased this 03' M5 as a comprimise for getting rid of my Carrera and needing a back seat. So after 2 days of ownership my SRS light has come on . Does anybody have any cheap solutions to run the fault code short of going to the stealer? Any help is appreciated.
you can get the tool for what the dealer will charge you.... my airbag light is on too.... I only owned my 740 for a little while before it came on(or noticed it not sure now..)
auto zone or kragens might have the tool.... they do free electronic testing....

My airbag light came on every time my wife used my car. I'd go have it reset, the she would use it again, and then it would come on again. Found out it was the seat switch that was getting pulled loose everytime she adjusted the seat. She is 5'3" and I am 6'3" so the seat was getting moved quite a bit everytime. I made sure it was secure and the cord was not getting snagged, then had it reset, and it has not come on since.
Check to make sure the switch is properly connected (sometimes they come loose with age) then have the code reset.
i have the same problem - looked under the seat and there seem to be a million wires!!! any clue as to which one or whereabouts on the seat?
it was actually the seatbelt pyrotechnic tensioner wire that came loose on mine. It's on the side where the seatbelt hooks in under the fastener. You have to take the seat out to get to it. The wires under the seat are for the seat controls, and yes there are a bunch! make sure to disconnect the battery before playing with any of the airbag/srs components!
