The oil service lights can be reset by the dealer free of charge. A tool made by Peake can be purchased to reset the service lights. They also make tools for SRS and check engine codes. More information can be found on their website

How long does the SRS light stay illuminated after you start the car? 3-5 seconds is normal, anything after that isn't. - Alberta based BMW Community

After warming up for like 10 minutes,the SRS light goes out after driving for like a mile.What could possibly be the problem and solution.
Can you also tell me where to plug in the decoder tool to decode the oil service and inspection lights?

You can reset the service lights using the round socket under the hood...
Find terminals "7" and "19" (hard because the numbers are so small), connect them together for 5secs and release, do it once more for 10secs ! This should reset both services.

Eso es todo!

Broken Printed Circuit Board in front safety belt buckles

3 Series (E36), 5 Series (E34), 7 Series (E38), 8 Series (E31)


The SRS airbag light comes "ON" and stays illuminated for up to two minutes after starting the vehicle. This may happen either with every start or sporadically. This SI does not refer to complaints of permanent illumination of the SRS airbag light.


The printed circuit board in the front safety belt buckle may be broken. This causes the monitored resistance values to drift under mechanical load. The ZAE airbag control module fault memory readout will display either "Fault Code 24" (driver seat) or "Fault Code 25" (passenger seat). The fault can be present or not present at the time the technician attempts to diagnose the fault.

Important: These faults have no effect on the airbag deployment function. When this fault occurs, the system will default to the deployment of both airbags (driver and passenger) regardless of whether a passenger is seated in the front seat or not.

Vehicles affected:

All models with ZAE Airbag System (E36, E34, E38, E31) are affected as of production date 3/94.


Check the ZAE airbag control module fault memory. If "Fault Code 24" and/or "Fault Code 25" are displayed, replace the corresponding safety belt buckle/safety belt tensioner unit. Clear the fault memory of the ZAE airbag control module.

Note: In case of fault code 24 and/or 25, replace the corresponding parts, even if the fault is not currently present during the time of testing.

For details on replacing the front left or right safety belt unit, refer to the appropriate repair manual, section 72/11.

Observe all relevant safety information when performing repairs to the Airbag system. Refer to SI 72 01 95.

Any replaced safety belt tensioner has to be disarmed before disposal or shipment. Refer to SI 72 03 91 and the appropriate repair manual, section

Warranty Information:

Parts and Labor are reimbursable under the terms of the BMW new car limited warranty of 4 years /50,000 miles.
