2003 z4 airbag light turned on

over the weekend i took the car on a fly fishing trip, unfortunately a 1 mile stretch of road was dirt, but it was mostly smooth with little bumpy grooves in the road. my airbag light has turned on and at one time it would not stop beeping for 20 minutes. now when i turn the key the airbag light just stays on.

what do i need to check and where? how do i reset the light? any ideas anyone?

i'm a z3 and z4 owner if you see my other postings. why? its called a midlife crisis to let me know i still got it with the chicks.

Probably the passenger seat sensor mat. Reset the light and see if it comes back. You need a Peake or (another brand I cant remember) reset tool.

Not sure about your year but our 1999 Z3 has two different ports. One is the OBD2 ports on the right side of the center console and the other is a round one under the hood. Also, the round one takes two different tools. One to reset the oil light and another to reset the airbag.

I have the SIR3 for sale, see here
resets SRS/airbag/oil/inspection and annual inspection
Want to buy Zymexx SIR3 reset tool for Airbag light

that is for the 20-pin round diagnosis plug in the engine room.
Check your engine room for the 20-pin plug, some cars still have over some years the 20-pin plug and the newer OBD II square plug. Reset from the 20-pin plug.

On a 1999 model the Peake tool basically should work, their website says for most BMW models from 1994. My tool works on most BMW from 1987! -

He didn't say which version of the tool he has, he simply says "the Peake tool". If he's using the R5/FCX3 on a 2001 or newer it won't work whereas the 5/FCX3-U will. Also, if his car is an M or newer than 2000 and he's using the R5/FCX3-16 he'll need the 20 pin FCX 3 that plugs in under the hood.

Part Number: R5/FCX3
Application: BMW 1987-2000

Part Number: R5/FCX3-U
Application: BMW 1987-2007

Part Number: R5/FCX3-16
Application: BMW 2001-2007
IMPORTANT: For 2001 740i, 740iL, 2000-2002 Z3/MCoupe/MRoadster, 2001-2003 X5, If your BMW has the 20 pin connector under the hood, you need to Use FCX 3
