I had that problem once on my E34 (92 525iA), but the dealer took care of it for no charge since it was just mere resetting on the computer. I don't know if you have any other problem as well. But I wonder how could the restraint system go bad, if nothing unusual happened in last few days of your driving?
Sorry this doesnt help you much.
