srs airbag issue
hi,i have been a bmw fan for years ,always read the forums for help and always found the answers until now
help needed
i have had an ongoing issue with my 1999 z3 with the airbag light always staying on
i have bought 2 different readers
a cheap ebay unit
and an expensive bavarian technic
well ,not much difference in the 2 units
the cheapy shows 16 &17
and the $ shows 22
its nice to have numbers but when you dont know what they mean ,it is worthless
i was hoping that bavarian would help but they brush me off
saying that the codes they use are the same as bmw
i cant find codes and description anywhere
here is what i have found 22 = mrsa front left
and 16= sensor side right parameter fault
and 17=sensor side airbag right data fault

i need specific placement info
i have toyed,disconnected,reconnected,replaced,measured just about everything
i have even rewritten the list that came with the chinese model to try and make sense of it all
i figured i would find the working units and eventually get the defective ones but to no avail

I have the same problem with 16 and 17 errors. I thought that it was to do with the seat occupancy sensors, I have bought 2 emulators but as yet have not tried to fit them. I have read somewhere that the airbags should still deploy even with the codes there.
