I posted in an earlier thread that my light was coming back on with the bypass. I took the seat bolts out...took the seat apart and cleaned all the connectors. I have not had a problem since. When it says the tensioner resistance is bad...this is usually what the cause is. You can buy a new tensioner wiring harness for $15 if you clean the connectors and it still doesnt work. Or there is a wire bypass for $50 that will fix the problem forever. Bmw put too small of wires in the original harness going right into the tensioner.....plug has a large yellow end on it under the seat. So far the occupied bypass i made is working well. I do not have inpa...i use pa soft
