Z3 6-cyl

The SRS air bag warning keeps coming on. I had the opportunity to have it looked at the BMW plant in South Carolina where the car was manufactured. A technician from the factory investigated the problem, reported that nothing was wrong and that it was just a malfunction. He reset the SRS air bag warning light. The next day it came on again. The dealer can rest it again, but it just keeps happening. I am concerned that the airbag may not operate during an accident.
