SOURCE: BMW 318i SE Airbag light

something in the airbag system is at fault. it could be the airbag(s) itself or any of the sensors that detect a crash to deploy the airbag. i would really take it into BMW and have it checked & repaired. the airbag(s) will not deploy with this light on so your safety is at risk if you are ever in an accident..

SOURCE: turn airbag off for 5 series bmw

The airbags do not need to be and should not be turned off if the *child* is sitting front-facing. The danger to kids in the front seat is that a rear facing baby would be hammered into the back of the seat. A front facing child would be protected as an adult. So, before you hunt down further info ... is your kid still sitting rear facing? And is your forward facing child boosted up with an appropriately fitted lap/shoulder belt?

Airbags in and of themselves are dangerous to kids.

this problem is most commonly caused by the rotating contact under the steering wheel (also called the clock-spring contact), it has developed and open circuit, the airbag control/diagnostic monitor senses this and disables the airbag system

Air bag warning light came on. I brought it to the BMW dealership and said the seat belt needed to be replaced on the front passengers side. $400 plus. Thoughts? 1999 BMW 328i Sport

It is possible. The system will give codes and point them into the right direction. If it is seatbelts ( I know it seems strange) it is because they may have a charge to them, meaning that they use a sensor (to let the system know when it is latched) and when there is an accident the system deploys airbags as well as releasing a charge to retract the belts and keep you well against the seats to prevent further injury by coliding with the airbag. Replace the latch and have them reset the system. Make they know that they are telling you that this "fixes" the system not they are going to replace parts until the light goes out! Let me know.

I removed my seats to shampoo my carpets in my 1999 323i and after I replaced the seats, the airbag warning light stays on. I have reconnected both seatbelt connectors and need help.

There are wires under the carpet, you might have pinched one re-installing the seat. I have seen this happen with shifter cables also.

Airbag light keeps coming on then off and on all the time

Hello, The airbag light comes on whenever there is any problem with the safety restraint systems.
This means that while the light is on the AirBag WILL NOT deploy. It could be several things....Electrical short in the Steering wheel (supplies power to Airbag), Seat belt locks (if the computer thinks the seatbelt is not in use it won't deploy the airbag), these are the most likely problems, But it could be bad or loose wiring under the dash (aftermarket Stereo?), or Impact sensors, or the Body control module. Any other lights? When does it come on / go off? Random or predictible pattern? Goods news is the car does not need an airbag to drive ... Good luck , hope that helped..
