    BMW or rather eBay sellers, sell a tool to reset it but of course only after it has been fixed. Much like the Alfa I had before the under seat connections play up.

    So I bought the tool (uses OBD and a converter plug for mine) and a seat belt bypass device. Sunday I used the tool and the light cleared and only lights up when you first turn the ignition on.

    The fault shown suggested there has been a voltage problem with the system. I'm guessing something (bulb perhaps) was previously removed. I guess whatever caused it to be removed/switched off will rear its ugly head at some point but for now I'm dash light free.
    Had similar on an old 5 series, long ongoing sage that one!

    There is a far simpler fix to this one though...just take the bulb out! No more warning light to worry about

    I removed the OEM seats on my Mini and replaced them with buckets, and disconnected the seat airbag plug and the seatbelt tensioner one. With the resistors fitted in place, the airbag light stays off
    I think a few marques probably had the issue. Two of the three Alfas I owned had the very same common problem. Alfa fixed it later by saying WDGAF if a passenger is in or out we will ignite the airbag on impact anyway.

    I believe that was where it started. As mentioned I picked the advisory on the MOT up, then asked him to fix it.
