Hi, my airbag light comes on in my 2004 X5 3.0d. When we reset the light it stays off for a couple of days & then it comes back on ? Any suggestions on what I can do to fix this fault. Many Thanks


you need to read the airbag code which will give you the solution instead of just resetting it. Common recurring problems are the occupancy seat sensor and the seat belt connector sensor.

Memory Seat System Components
The memory seat system consists of the following components:
• Power Seat Switch
• Seat Horizontal Motor
• Seat Front Vertical Motor
• Seat Rear Vertical Motor
• Seat Recliner Motor
• Driver Seat Module
• Memory Seat Switch

It's not the module , probably sensor supplying bad info to the module.

Memory Set/Recall Operation
The driver seat adjuster motors are equipped with potentiometer type position sensors used by the driver seat module to determine the seat position. The position sensors are supplied with 5-volt reference and ground circuits from the driver seat module. The position sensor signal circuits are referenced from ground within the driver seat module. The signal circuit voltage levels monitored by the driver seat module range from 0.39 - 4.58 volts and are determined by the wiper locations on the resistors within the motor position sensors. The position sensor circuit voltage levels are used by the driver seat module to determine the seat position when storing or recalling memory position settings.
The memory recall switch assembly on the driver's door provides inputs to the driver door module. Battery voltage is supplied to the memory recall switch assembly from the driver door module. When a memory recall 1, 2, or EXIT switch is pressed, the switch contacts close the appropriate switch signal circuit to the battery voltage supply circuit within the memory recall switch assembly. When the driver door module receives active switch signals from the memory recall switch assembly, the appropriate commands are sent to the driver seat module using the Class 2 Serial Data circuit.
Memory seat recall operation is allowed only with the transmission selector lever in the PARK position while the ignition is on. The transmission selector lever position data is provided to the driver seat module by a message through the Class 2 Serial Data circuit.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop and have it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .
Install a scan tool.
Observe the switch parameter for which the DTC has set in the seat module Inputs/Outputs data list.
Does the scan tool display Inactive?
DTC B1735, B1740, B1745, B1750, B1755, B1760, B1815, or B1820
DTC B1825, B1850, B1860, B2355, B2365, or B2375

Airbag warning light problem


there can be few reason for this. what we can be sure is there is nothing related to starting systems.

there are several sensors for SRS systems. accordign to design of cars, adjustable seats has sensors for impact, position, seat belts, weight sensor for passengers etc. if one is broken or conneciton is loose this kind of errors can occur. try to reet it or ask dealer to reset it and check for error. i am sure this is a kind of socmket problem. once i own a bmw. when i moved the drivers seat back it cracked somethign under seat and airback light lit. i checked under seat and found that a clip belongs to SRS system was broken .fixed it by solderin wires back and reset light. that is all.

about hard starts, this is generally becasue of broken crack position sensors and intake air temperature sensors.(you need to be sure that your injectors are clean and intake position sensor is operational)

there is a good chance that you will need to take the vehicle in to have the passenger seat resyncronized. The 06 uses a weight sensing system to determine if someone is sitting in the passenger seat. It uses sensors to determine the weight of the occupant by placing your knee in the center it probably thought the sensors weren't reading right since all the weight was in the center of the seat. There is a special set of weights that that dealer has in order to calibrate the sensors again. You might be able to try having someone sit in the passenger seat and then get out a few times and maybe it will see that it's reading correctly now and clear on its own. Laptops running and positioned on the passenger seat have been known to cause problems with this system too at least on the 05's it did.

Srs light needs to be reset


Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Passanger Side air bag sensor


I had a simular problem with my Vue. Found the sensor in the seat for the airbag was faulty. This sensor is also part of the seat heater. Replaced the part and found that when this part is replaced, an adaptor is needed in addition to the sensor/heater. The cost of this repair was around $1500. After all was replaced, we reset all the codes and all was well. Hope this helps.
