Garage List
Why would you want to bypass the occupancy sensor?

It would be quicker, cheaper and easier to cut the seatbelt 'plug' from a scrapped E9x and just plug it into the socket of the passenger seat.

No mate. This error appears when the occupancy sensor mat in the passenger seat has a circuit break / or decreased resistance due to water ingress.

Sensor mat is approx 110 excluding VAT and then you would be looking to rip the seat to fit it.


It is very common and people should not be kneeling on the passenger seat / spilling the fluids there.


There is also a recall for this on late 2006 and early 07 cars.

Ring your loca dealer and tell them that there is a recall going on for occupancy sensor and you wonder if your car is covered.
