Car has a passenger restraint system error. This appears to be a very common problem. Warning comes on as soon as the car is started until the vehicle is shut down. The airbag may or may not deploy in the event of a crash.

The seat air bag sensor mat has failed the airbag light stays on.the 2006 to 2008 models were recalled for this exact problem but not the 2009.thos is a serious safety issue because the air bag will not deploy on the passenger side with a faulty sensor.contacted BMW will not repair unless you pay full price.this is a joke because the repair is 1500 dollars or more, the car only has 77000 miles and has been well taken care of. A recall should be issued because this a serious and common problem which is very expensive to repair and is a horrible design.

Takata recall-I took my car in for the airbag recall and the BMW of South atlanta repaired the driver seat-I think. When I left the passenger airbag off light was on and I asked about it the tech said if you have an accident you don't want to schrapnel to hit the passenger. From then on the seat belt sign stayed on even when someone was in the passenger seat with their seat belt on. I took my car back in last week for the warning light and was told it is a seat sensor and would cost $1,400. Does this have anything to do with the airbag recall" if this is a safety issue and is a faulty part with BMW then why aren't they recalling and repairing"
