Airbag Light Reset - 1 Series Fxx

Post by Telephonewire » Wed May 23, 2018 8:41 pm

The "Restraint system" warning message has appeared on my iDrive screen and the airbag light has come appeared on my dashboard on my F20 M135i.

The cause was due to a loose front seatbelt pre-tensioner plug connector which has now been fixed.

What's the easiest way to reset the fault code?

I have tried the Torque Pro Android App but it only reads and resets OBD2 'generic' fault codes and not BMW specific fault codes.

I looked at Carly for BMW but they want £54.90 per year subscription and I don't even know if that will work!

Are there any free / inexpensive Android Apps or Windows Apps that I can use to reset the airbag light?

I have a Blue Tooth Elm 327 Adaptor and an OBD2 to USB cable that I can use on a laptop or Android phone with OTG as a starting position.

Thanks in anticipation for any advice.
