My BMW X5 won't stay running. start off running good, then it starts to run rough gets loud check engine light comes starts to sputter then turns off.

First you have to get the stored trouble codes that were set from the check engine light. These codes tell a few areas to check for problems in your car. Without these codes, you could end up replacing a lot of parts and the car still will not be fixed correctly.

The service air bag is on. What does this mean?

I had the same problem years ago with my Dodge Dynasty. The airbag light came on for no apparent reason. I took it to the dealer and they said they fixed it. Two days later the light came back on again so I went back to the dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with the airbag and didn't know why the light was on. A few years later I gave the car to my grandson and he took it out to the desert and drove it over a huge dirt hill (not very smart) and when the car came down over the hill the airbag came out uninflated. I drove around all that time with a useless airbag based on what the dealer told me. I would suggest taking it back to the repair shop and let them check it out. If they can't find out what is wrong I would definitely get a new airbag. I know they can be expensive but your life is worth a lot more.
Good luck.

Air bag light on how turn off

no other way to make airbags light OFF once it was ON or flashing. you have a repair shop diagnose your airbags warning light with a scan-tool. this provide the technician the DTC code and advise if the airbag clock-spring needs replacement.

2006 bmw x3 has airbag warning light on since the passenger window had to be replaced because of theft. What can I do?

The most popular do-it-yourself tool for this is the Peake, but Peake does not yet sell a model that will reset the light on a 2006.
The dealer can reset it, but they will charge you a bundle for 2 minutes work.
Find a good German car specialty shop that has a professional tool that will reset it for a reasonable price. My usual shop reset my wife's for free, so I took them doughnuts.

1999 bmw 320i airbag warning light

If the airbag (SRS) light is on then it means there is a problem with the system. Working on the SRS can be very hazardous. For this reason I suggest you have this looked at by a professional. This is not a DIY repair. Far too dangerous for a novice to attempt to repair.

Airbag light stays on for 2 minutes

Have the airbag system scanned for codes. Will require BMW software to complete. Possible local repair facility that can help otherwise you will have to go to the dealer.

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..
