gears are probably not engaged. take the seat out, see if the motor drive gear is still within the teeth of the seat rail. if not, force it in. Easy to take out, 4 bolts and the seat comes up and out.

its the dreaded seat rock syndrome, plenty of fixes on the forums, basically you have to replace spacers in set drive mechanism. I did with the help of a friend after ordring bushes and it was quite easy.

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.

Where is the passenger airbag deactivation switch?

Your vehicle did not come with a manual [driver controlled] deactivation switch. The passenger side airbag on this car is controlled by a switch built into the bottom seat cushion of the passenger seat. If you place an object heavy enough on the passenger seat to activate that switch, the airbag will be activated. If it is activated when the seat is empty, then the switch inside the seat bottom is either defective or someone has disconnected it. Look under the passenger side seat for an electrical connector which may be unplugged.

Where the battery in my 525 is?

If it is a newer model, it is in the trunk under a panelif you have an older model, check underneath the rear passenger-side seat. For a jump, there is a positive contact you can use under the hood and of course connect the negative to the engine block.

1994 BMW 525 Battery

Look on the passenger side at the firewall and fender junction.   In the attached picture, see at the lower left side.  You need to remove the black plastic battery cover about 9"x7" located there, then you'll be able to see how the battery restraint works if you need to remove.
The title says 1994 525, and this is where tha battery is for '94, probably in the same place '91, if not look for a 10"x7" plastic cover elsewhere in the engine compartment.

Electric seats , not fully functional

Hey dpurple,
Beemer seats are just like all the others. You CAN fix your own seats it's just a matter of how much knowledge you have about working on things. You can get replacement parts at junk yards and on-line, even a complete seat in most cases.Do some investigation as to why the seats won't move correctly. Maybe a loose/broken wire leading to the affected/broken side that doesn't work. The motor that drives that side of the seatback might be loose or the attaching gears could be striped. Once you take one side apart, you'll see the problem.
