You need diagnostic software that can scan for BMW codes other than engine codes. This will tell you which airbag is triggering the fault light. If you have side airbags that are built into the seats, like I do on my Audi A4, you may have the same issue that I do with mine - moving the seat a little too far pulls on the airbag connector under the seat, separating it just enough to trip the fault light. I zip-tied mine tightly to keep it from separating, and then used the diagnostic computer to turn off the light. Most of the time an airbag light will not reset itself - it has to be manually turned off using a scanner or other interface software and a computer. If you don't have this, you'll probably have to pay someone to do it for you, but make sure to find the suspect bag first and see what you can do to keep it from triggering a light again.
