    My 2001 BMW 330 i stereo is crackling and popping. This has happened twice. The first time it happened the car sat over night and the next day it was fine. It has been two months and it is doing it again. It does it when the radio or CD player is on. What could it be? Also my locks quit working twice for a short time.

Its worth checking local BMW specialists and mobile diagnostics technicians, they may have the OBD2 diagnostics equipment to clear these fault codes. it will be significantly cheaper than main dealer prices.

Try wigglying the wires under the front seats,doesnt always work but sometimes it does.Other than that dealer!!!!!! as software is encrypted and it will show a different fault number to what it actually is.

I've indicated already that it's NOT a brake, transmission, or timing problem. My husband and son have fixed EVERYTHING possible on it and still can't get it to start.

yes once a air bag is deployed most cars will not start. brakes will never cause a car to not start and the same with thew transmission. there is a air bag control module and it is located under the center consel

I have a code that show on CARMD about the srs light (airbag) on my dash , how do I reset or shut it off without changing an airbag

Hi there:The Restraints Control Module (RCM / located behind right side of the instrument panel) monitors the resistance of the driver side air bag circuit loop and the air bag module igniter at RCM, if the resistance is greater than 3.6 ohms, the RCM will store diagnostic trouble code B1994 and flash lamp fault code.
About the possible causes, pay attention that a high resistance on the driver side air bag circuit can be caused by:
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1257 (WH/LB).
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1258 (BN/LB)
  • - damaged driver side air bag module.
  • - damaged RCM.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Airbag light is constantly there a way to reset it? 2002 gmc savanna van 2500

Hello:If the air bag light is on that means there is a problem with the system. to find out what is causing the light to be on you will have to have it checked with a scanner. You can check with auto zone or advance auto but I don't think the scanners they use will check the air bag system. There isn't any reset for the system. To put the light out you have to repair the problem then clear the code.

hi, what this is basically telling you is that the air bag cylinders are at the end of their optimum charge time so they are on a time delay you will then get the warning you have got untill you get these replaced.
Its just a safety feature telling you to get these parts changed and not drive the car untill you get them changed.
So changing these cylinders will solve your problem but this isnt the kind of job you can do yourself as you are dealing with a pottential explosive and can cause serious harm to you and others around you so please leave this job to a pro plus the light needs resetting witch can only be done by a garage that has been trained in doing air bag work so keep this in mind.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

2001 Sonata Air bag light has been on for months. Does that mean the bag won't inflate and where might the problem be?

Could be several causes... but the result is consistent - when the light is on the air bag is disabled

The motion sensor board has a failure - or one of the crash sensors has failed - so the motions sensor board is not receiving the desired signal. To prevent an accidential firing of the bag, the system disables the airbag and turns on the light....

Srs warning light is staying on

Supplemental restraint system warnig light should be checked by dealer to make sure that it is not just a reset problem.Ask the dealer if disconnecting the battery could have caused this. People who install stereos usually don't have factory training on air bags When the srs light is on the air bag system is non functioning. Please have it checked.

Air bag light

What sensors do they refer to? crash?, the most common cause of the light based on my expearience is the clock-spring contact under the steering wheel has an open circuit, the part is cheap, but is is a little hard to install since the steering wheel must come off.
