problem #2

Dec 142008


  • 99,800 miles
My vehicle is a 2002 BMW 745I that has an drive system and the latest warning note came up on the idrive screen that says, "fault in pass.-restraint system affecting airbag, belt tensioner or belt-force limiter. Fasten and continue to wear belts. Please contact the nearest BMW center". my research indicates that there is a service bulletin that BMW initiated that covers this issue for a 10 year period.
