Q: Air bag sensor light illuminated for passenger side on 2004 BMW 745i

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The air bag/safety sensor light for passenger seat appears on screen. BMW does not know whether it is circuit malfunction or something to do with airbag itself. This airbag has never released so find it hard to believe it is airbag itself. But est to find problem is>$1000. Any ideas??

It's a poor sign if BMW can't figure out the source of the problem bu obviously their is a fault that would need to be diagnosed to have the airbags (SRS) to operate properly. If there is any independent BMW specialist in your area you trust ask them if they have seen a common problem with the SRS system or felt confident diagnosing problems in the SRS system.
