Daniel Taylor: I call BS on "Without fixing this problem, your airbags will not deploy." BMW have designed the system so that if the occupancy sensor is faulty, it defaults to setting off the passenger airbag in a crash. This is to save lives. If it cant tell whether its occupied it will blow just in case you do have a passenger.
Francisco Siles: I went to three different radio shack location and I couldn't find the diodo.. is there any different number that I can use instead 1n4001
Hamid Ghabelzadeh: Thanks a lot. I had the same problem on driver seat of 2008 750Li E66 and it works well.
Cilibiu George: In this video is present a schmeatic that ONLY disapear the error of AIRBAG but the AIRBAG from pasager seat is OFF, way? because these schematic is only to detect the "senzor"of pasager seat, not to know if in the seat is a person, I try these schematic and in my diagnose is say me "The pasager seat is not ocupied"and is show me with Yellow color, I try another way to put the rezistor and diode and I find how is made the pasager senzor. Now in my diagnose is say me "The passager seat is ocupied"with green color.

Rodrigo mora: Thanks for sharing your experience. Building the bypass but the light persists can help me giving me another tip Thanks Rodrigo Costa Rica .e46 99
Daniel Genov: This procedure fixed my problem. After reset of the SRS the light of the airbag went off. I am very grateful for the video! By the way, I used IN4007 Diode instead of IN4001, because the dealer told me they are the same. I am from Bulgaria :)
FLACguy: Will this fix also work on a US spec'd X3 2005? Mine developed that same fault about a month ago and I'm willing to bypass the sensor myself instead of loosing a day at BMW's service shop.
kifahalnajjar: blue wire is volts and white wire is ground or signal
Ruben Mendes: if I do this, will say that someone is sitting? or is empty?
MrDnLegacy: So I have done this to my 2003 E60 530d and had the fault codes wiped all good, Still need to make 100% sure the airbags pretentioners etc will work correctly as with this set up my car now thinks the passenger seat is always empty :-/
