Today the airbag light came on in my mrs 2007 mini cooper D.

Ive read the common causes for this but does anybody know what tool i would need to read the fault code and reset the light?

Thanks.

I watched an Australian 60 minutes episode about 2 weeks ago, about Whistle blowers of a major Japanese Manufacturer of airbags Takata [apparently] knowingly using something to set of the airbag that had been responsible for sending parts of the mechanism through peoples heads like bullets, You have just reminded of it, I googled the company and found list of vehicles fitted with offending airbags, I'll post it now you reminded me, and tell My mate as his Honda crv was on the list.

edit found it Recall list

As for question sorry I can't help, maybe @miggy knows something or somebody who can help.

Have you checked the wiring harness under the seat? They tend to work loose.Failing that m8 have a read of this.

Cheers @miggy
Yeah ive checked under the seats...everything seems fine.
But even if i had moved something back into place i would still need to reset the light?

That article was from 2 years ago...i wonder if it still stands? As she has only had it a year so dont know if its ever been back to BMW to have the problem fixed.

It should be on their database. Give them a ring and tell them you are aware of this recall and has it been done?. Tell them you are a little worried over this problem as it's your good Ladies. Worth a try m8.

might not be the recalled air bag that's put light on it might be a seat bag check all wires under the seat are ok
kids feet and bags shoved under seats can loosen connections
