Airbag light on Error 13

The questions that I have is with my airbag light. I have read the code for the error like. The code # is 13. When I did research online I found
" 13 (0x0D) - CRASH SENSOR SUPPLY RESISTANCE TOO HIGH - FRONT LEFT - Check the sensor, wires and connections for breaks, shorts or defects. Delete faults in memory, drive vehicle over 15 mph, then rerun diagnosis."

I am not sure where this sensor is or where\how to to check the sensor. any help would be greatly appreciated. pictures a plus

If I recall, the E46 only has 3 airbag crash sensors???

One under the console in front of the parking brake.
Two side sensors, located on the door sill each side of the car under the front seats.

By any chance has someone had the seats out and possibly disconnected the side impact sensor? If the sensors are unplug without the battery being disconnected, they can register a fault as I recall?

I have never removed the seats out in the last yr that I have had the car. I have reset the light 3 times and it keeps coming back in less than 24hrs.

Any more details on the location of the sensors. Maybe a picture or diagram
