There is a 10 year recall warranty

For 06 3 series bmw's if its a seat senor problem.

On the front passenger seat sensor in the US.
If the pressure senor fails within that period its
suppose to be replaced free.

Recall 08v384000 seat occupant sensor defect
says it only apply s to 06's in the 3 series though

Send a message via AIM to Bendercle
You can clear it with Inpaload. Depending on whether or not something's actually defective it might come back.

I think they are being kind nit picky

about that recall it happened in the same year as the model year of your car.
I have had that error once but it went away.
I though a remembered reading somewhere somebody made a
jumper that fooled it into thinking it was outputting the right value.
When I had the error I was considering options my self .

My 2006 325xi wagon had the same problem at 42K mi. Brought Tenafly BMW (NJ), they wanted $200 just to run the diagnosis. Plus extra to fix if there is a problem.. I asked if there is a recall. She said NO.. Then I brought my car to my mechanical in Palisades Park, NJ. The owner ran a test, reset and the lights are off. DONE! He said it could be short wire or the sensor. But at least the lights are off. I tipped him $10...
(BTW, the owner at Alltech has been treating my bimmer like his car. Highly recommended)

anybody find the values to be changed yet in order to turn off the airbag lights. this is not regarding the seat occupancy but for a number of other reasons i would like to code out my airbag lights as they stay on.

please insert the vales to be changed and so on.

thanks

I left those alone, and set OC3 to nicht_akitv, and then unplugged the mat connector under the seat.
Cleared the codes with inpa and voila, never a light again.
