I asked that they remove misleading description on Ebay, but all said they were going to contact their supplier and check-out. Probably half of what the dealer would charge. Search around for reliable sources. This made no difference - the red light stays on. I also need to see an instrument printed circuit board know where a circuit light can get its voltage from, when the thing you would think should be suppying it isn't in the car Still there is no red light on the dash now. I bought it new from Amazon because I don't want to wait a month for it to arrive from china. A meter test on the passenger seat airbag sensor wires showed no ohms.
I took it off and sent it to Liverpool to be reset. Even though it looks easy on YouTube I was at it all morning. The airbag light is on. They sell the same unit with bluetooth for Android phones. If this is all satisfactory, and you still have no communication, then the unit is pooped. I too have now bypassed the passenger seat sensor using a kit I bought on Ebay. The passenger side door was never touched only the drivers side front door.
This lasted for about 2 miles and cost 100 pounds. Then I carefully plugged the seat back in. Any input would be great! Did not have to disconnect or take out the seat. I took this to be open circuit and bought and fitted a Techtronics passenger seat airbag sensor by pass unit. I haven't drawn any conclusions yet. The unit is difficult to get at.
But I want something hat doesn't leave me asking questions either. I always find them helpful. You may have to before you can post: click the register link above to proceed. But i want all of you to consider this. It worked for me, to reset an airbag light triggered by work done on one of the doors.
Good luck, and I hope I was of some help. Have you made any progress? Thus I bought and fitted a passenger seat by-pass unit. If I was in any accident that made any airbag go off the car would be totalled anyway, what do I care if the passenger airbag deploys? I don't even plan on buying any srs-airbag reset tool unless my airbag light goes on. Its very frustrating as read hours on this fault and still can't suss it out? The downside is that in the event of a serious accident the airbags won't deploy. Fixed it based on the information found on this forum. I don't really want to spend the money for the Peake srs tool If i dont have to. Sorry about that - just a litle diversion caused by the exctasy of presuming I have found a fault no one else around here could.
I can read all sorts of parameters on my 2000 528i. Any false moves in this situation will deploy a selection of airbags, and you will be severely injured at best! Hi Fellas, I have been plagued with this problem for five years. Frankly I don't know no what to do except draw conclusions and act on them. Obviously someone in a scrap yard sorry - recycling agency on eBay has come across this before because they catagorically say that an airbag module with the references above is unsuitable for a 2001 525d e39.

Have they all got little red lights on? You need to disconnect the car battery and leave for about 30mins before touching the unit. I just hate to see people waste their money. They insist the unit is correct for the car and they should know. Then I re-connected the battery. I've scanned probably half a dozen co-workers cars, fellow enthusiasts etc. First of all power supply to the control unit. Just why is the Inpa when plugged in not reading them? That is fax-machine old tech.
This is what is fitted. Garage I bought the car from 5 years ago could not sort the problem. I read the single most likely fault was the passenger seat sensor. While im not only a bmw wrencher. I dont charge for it, I just see it as good Carma.
