Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti
Want switch airbag off so child seat can be put in the front

SOURCE: turn airbag off for 5 series bmw
The airbags do not need to be and should not be turned off if the *child* is sitting front-facing. The danger to kids in the front seat is that a rear facing baby would be hammered into the back of the seat. A front facing child would be protected as an adult. So, before you hunt down further info ... is your kid still sitting rear facing? And is your forward facing child boosted up with an appropriately fitted lap/shoulder belt?
Airbags in and of themselves are dangerous to kids.

I have the same issue, the dealer told me they can just change the sensor. However, he also told me the sensor is only for the airbag, that the seatbelt will work without it. So, if you are ok not having a working airbag, and willing to just trust the s/b then there is no need to fix it.
Anyone know how to turn the light off?

It can also be theseat motor since there is seperate motors for up/down & forward/backwards. You can test the switch to see if you are getting power to the connector on the motor by using a multimeter.
If there is power to the motor, I would remove the motor and give it a tap on the ground. Alot of the time the motor is fine, and the tap will free it up again. If it doesn't work you may be up for a new seat motor. Giving mine a tap solved the issue with mine.
