My Ride: 328i
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???
