Mechanics, Racers, Installers, Tuners!

mechanic, racer and tuner will eventually face. The removal of
interior components such as the seat, steering wheel, ECUs, parts of
the wiring harness, etc... will cause the airbag light to come on.

money, or the purchase of a very costly scan and reset tool. With

up the code in our code book, make sure you know exactly why the
airbag light is on, fix the problem, then reset it. It's just that simple.

Has your airbag (SRS) light ever come on unexpectedly? Have you
been driving around ignoring the SRS light? Do you know exactly
why your SRS light came on (i.e. you triggered it while installing
an alarm/stereo/steering wheel/seat) but you have no way to reset
it? Are you tired of relying on someone else to get the SRS light
reset? If yes, then the R5/SRS was made for you!
Wouldn't it be great to
have a good idea of what's wrong before you go in for a repair?
Or, better yet, if it's a minor problem, like when racers swap in
a racing seat and trigger the airbag light, you can scan it, fix
it, and reset it yourself!
What is the SRS light
trying to tell me?
The BMW SRS light can mean any number of things from serious to
minor. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair
of a broken part, but often it's merely indicating that a circuit
critical to proper SRS operation was temporarily disconnected (i.e.
while you were installing a stereo, alarm, racing seat or steering
wheel). Without the R5/SRS, it's anyone's guess. You're stuck
staring at your SRS light until you have time to go pay someone to
diagnose and reset it.
