My Ride: BMW 328i 1998
Seatbelt Lock code, but no circuit found

The airbag lamp on my 1998 328i recently turned and when I checked the fault codes it was showing code 20 and 24, Seat Occupancy Detection Circuit Passenger Side and Seatbelt Lock Driver Side.

However, when removing the driver seat I find the belt pre-tentioner cable and the seat heater cable, but there is no seatbelt lock cable, as in the new part I ordered. There is no metal contacts on the large yellow seat connector, and there is no wire running from the connector on the "car-side" down into the car.

This is weird, right?

The car was sold new in Sweden.

Yes very unusual. I would fix the passenger side, clear the codes and see what happens.

I removed the passenger seat and checked the resistance of the occupancy sensor mat only to find that it was giving the same resistance values as my spare part. Hmm there is something weird going on here.
