New e46 Owner: Airbag light wont clear, Hesitation Under 2k RPM
Just bought an e46 and have some questions.
First some info about the car:
1999 e46 328i 193k miles

The air bag light is on and i cant get it to clear, I have a R5/SRS and ive plugged it in to the 20pin connector under the hood. It reads codes just fine.

It shows the following codes:
Table 02
Codes: 01,18,03

Ive tried to clear them with no luck. Ive even created new codes on purpose by disconnecting the entire pass seat harness... That gave me new codes 11 and 6. After reconnecting i tried to clear again with no luck.

Ive also removed the center console and checked the connection on the SRS module, removed it, reconnected it. No go.

Any ideas?

I assume 01 is from when the previous owner had the door off for a repair. 03 because the battery was at a low voltage and 18 because of the occupancy mat.

I performed the bypass on the mat thinking it may be preventing me from clearing all the codes? No luck...

The hesitation problem is under load from 1.2k-2k RPMS in any gear while under load.

So far ive replaced the following:
lower intake boot
Vac line to the valve cover from oil thingy
Vac line to the SAS that was cracked
Air filter (also cleaned the maf and looked at the TB)

Any ideas on that one???

Any ideas??? I have alot of parts on the way for PM. If there is something im missing let me know....

Really need the airbags straitened out for inspection.

it might be the belt tensioner.. try removing the yellow clip under the seat for a few minutes. clear codes again..report back

Already disconnected and reconnected seat wiring

I didn't understand, were you able to clear the 02 11 code?

honeybee 11-13-2012 02:01 AM

after all these you try, this problem still do not solved?

Hi. I don't see you mentioning that you checked the Airbag fuse. Jim

FastCHAZ 11-13-2012 02:34 AM

bro have you ever simply checked for a blown fuse? my airbag light was on for 1 year
before I changed mine.

Nerdy46 11-13-2012 07:58 AM

I have visually inspected fuse 11 but have not put a multi meter to it. Are there any other fuses that are associated with the Srs system?

Nerdy46 11-13-2012 04:53 PM

Any more ideas?

Nerdy46 11-13-2012 05:23 PM

Just checked all fuses with a multimeter and they were all good.

FOR YOUR HESITATION: replace "suckimg jet pump" for vacuum control,( not the one in the gas tank) replace vanos seals, clear adaptations...

Nerdy46 11-13-2012 10:16 PM

I already plan on replacing the disa oring and checking the valve. I guess vanos seals will be next.

Barneyhyphen 11-13-2012 10:59 PM

Check the VANOS solenoid(s) as well, for correct operation.

Thoughts on srs issue?

Nerdy46 11-15-2012 12:18 AM

Is there anyway to bench test the module???

Nerdy46 11-15-2012 10:47 PM


Any ideas on testing my module?

If you can't sort it out yourself, or through search, you might need to hire a professional.

I fully capable i would just like to know if anyone had a diagram or anything to bench test my module. It sounds like the module is done for. I have a new one on the way.

I just figured there may be someone on here more knowledgeable then me when it comes to electronics trouble shooting :thumbsup:
