Wink E39 540i airbag light comes on occasionally

Hiya BMW buffs, I have a 2001 540i and sometimes air bag light comes on but it seems more common at low speed? Usually it stays off particularly at highway speed. Weird huh anyone got any thoughts it annoys me when it pops on and I am concerned that air bags will not work in an accident.
Cheers Richy

take away your guesswork and have your car scanned for the airbag fault codes.

thanks Darkhorse but concerned that problem is very infrequent that when I take car to have fault codes checked light won't be on and therefore I guess won't show any fault?? True or will the fault show up anyway even with light off? cheers Richy
