Occupancy Sensor DIY

Sorry for the delay on this but my biggest trouble was getting it into PDF format, I just wasn't going to have 13mb for an 11 page file. I managed to get around it so here it is enjoy.

This is excellent. I now have my next project!

I still have to order the sensor and stuff but will hopefully attempt this in the next month or two. I will take pics and send them.

Um, now what does this do?

Turn the passengerside air bag off like newer cars?

If I get in accident, I wouldnt want to be liable for it not working with a passenger. Plus, if she's wrecked, she better be wrecked beyond repair, I do not want a repaired car. Extra bag's blowing will increase the potential of it being totaled...

Airbag light is on it means theres been a fault in the SRS/Airbag System and you need to first have it checked and then cleared. If it returns after clearing its most likely a problem somewhere. The cables under your seat do come loose from time to time which often sets of the light but passenger seat occupancy sensors going are quite a common flaw on the E46 Especially the early models. The sensor simply detects weight on the seat and allows the passenger airbag to fire off.

I am looking for this as well. I cannot find it anywhere without paying for it.

Can someone re-post this?
