Question about 1997 BMW 318
I have a 1999 BMW 318i SE and pretty much since I've owned the car the airbag light has been illuminated on the dash, I've tried replacing the fuse but the light still hasn't gone out, has anyone had a similar problem? Is this serious or can it be fixed without too much expense?
Any help woul be great!
Aaron airbag light one morning when I started the car and had stayed on since then
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: BMW 318i SE Airbag light
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
