Depends on the fault.........if it's just come up from an badic error then it's fine. However if the sensor is faulty then the airbag/s might not deploy in a crash.

Right....

What you need to do is take the car to a BMW dealer or a local indi specialist who have the correct diagnostic equipment.

The airbag light can come on for many reasons from a break in circuit to a sensor failure.

Reading the codes and noting the fault followed by a reset may/should clear the problem depending on issue.

One of the common reasons for the airbag light coming on, on a used car is due to the sensor under the seat getting knocked and breaking the connections.

PLEASE NOTE - When the airbag system has recorded a fault, the full system (most times) is disabled.
