  1. I've had a problem with my airbag light (diagnostics say a passenger airbag circuit short to earth fault) which having substituted a known good airbag and checked the wiring/plugs etc seems to me to be a likely ECU problem... and that's the final step on the diagnostic fault guidance too. Today it is at the local BMW dealers for the drivers airbag recall work and I've asked them to spend a max 1hr extra labour to double check my findings... then advise and quote. Unless they find something daft I've missed no doubt they will be quoting some massive price to change the ECU which I will decline and do myself. Reading around this and other forums it seems if you get the exact same airbag ECU then you can fit it, clear the fault codes and it will not need coding which I guess I might be able to do but would rather not. Image shows my ECU so could someone tell me which of the 7 number sequences I need to match up to get one that is operationally the same?

    Spurious fault lights

    I have a number of alerts on my dash which I'd like to clear and I would appreciate the experience of the forum in tackling some of the jobs. 'Low brake fluid' - with associated red brake (different to p/brake) light: I've checked the fluid level, and the pads, which all seem fine, so I'm assuming it's a sensor malfunction. Is this a straight forward job? Do I need to replace the entire reservoir or can I get the sensor (assuming it's the fault)? 'Check coolant level': Similar thing, levels checked and seem fine, so assuming a sensor fault. 'Self level susp. inact.': I had coilovers fitted, and this then generated the alert. The rear suspension airbags were removed and I assume it is related to this, but I was wondering if anyone knew a way to deactivate the alert message? Airbag light Changed the old boat wheel for an msport wheel. I've managed to get all the buttons to work, but I'm left with an airbag warning light. Any thoughts on this, and any of the others, would be greatly appreciated. Ta.

    Recall

    So i saw a post on the E39 facebook group, that said something about an airbag recall for the driver's side steering wheel. They we're told to wait for the letter, but it is indeed a genuine recall, and calling for people to get their cars booked in. So i guess my question is, for the E39 experts on here, that have been there, done that, go tthe T-shirt and subsequently lost said t-shirt, how reliable is this information, as, at the moment, it's just word of mouth/here-say. How many people have actually had this done, and is it worth waiting for the letter, or JFDI? I'd very much like to couple the recall in with a service, as i've not done one since i've had the car, and even though i think the person i bought the car from was cool, its 200K+ on the clock and would be good just to satisfy my curiosity. Anyone recommend a dealership in the West London / Berkshire area? Muchos Gracias Deepan.
  4. I have spoken with a couple of members and the general consensus is that this is a retrofit too far... ... But before I write the idea off (i'm not adverse to putting in the effort) has anyone else looked into this? The donor vehicle is a M reg 1994 525i Touring auto with the second airbag system control box under rear bench. The unit has a power, input from passenger seat & door connector plug and then feed wires to the two airbags. The recipient is a 1992 525iX touring with an earlier system of two small orange boxes on the front suspension towers. The wires go into the cabin through the fire wall. I have taken out the glovebox and some of of the gubbins like top vent and radio but can not find a connector for the passenger airbag + dash that the parts file (BMWfans.info) lists for this vehicle ??
  5. Hi all, I own a E60, 535d, 2005 110,000 miles. I am new to the site and have joined here as I need help diagnosing two issues with my car. Issue 1 - When driving at constant speed the rev counter needle moves up and down with no change in pedal push, this also happens in cruse control. Sometimes it feels like the engine loses and gains power in respect to the revs falling and rising. - Does this sound like a torque converter issue, gearbox or faulty sensors ? Issue 2 - I have airbag warning light on dashboard, car has been to BMW dealer and they say it is not a faulty sensor in the seat but a voltage issue caused by the positive battery blow off terminal and weak battery, I have bought a brand new battery now but after resetting the airbag light it came back after a few days. I have attached pictures to this post - Its hard to find cheap positive battery cable off the internet that has not been involved in accident as they may be blown and brand new one is around £150 from dealer, which is way too much. I will appropriate your responses Many thanks Hyecar
  6. Hey everyone, a airbag/seatbelt warning light has popped up on my dash and idrive on my bmw 525d msport. This happened a few months ago but has recently happened again. Its literally as i turn the ignition on, a noise is heard and then symbols appear. Also on the idrive it says restraint system faulty but still to use the seatbelts. Will my airbags still operate in a crash with this warning light coming on? Ive looked under the driver seat and the wires look as thought they are hanging down, maybe come loose when the seat has been moved. Is this a regular thing with 525's? When i initially took my car to the garage, they plugged in there diagnostic kit and nothing appeared ref the airbag, and the warning symbols disapeared for a few days but now have popped up again. Many thanks.

    Occupancy sensor in seat

    Hello, I am new to the forum and haven't got a clue about the mechanics of a car . I own a 535d sport (E60) which i've had for 6 years , we have worked out that the sensor in the passenger seat is faulty and i have got a new one from BMW but i need someone to fit this in the seat. Does anyone know of a decent garage or individual who could do this for me in the Edinburgh area , who isn't going to rip me off and do the job correctly ? With the new laws coming into place in April regards to MOT's this problem is now a failure and i have to rectify asap. Thanks in advance to all who can offer me advice and help.
