I had been told by the dealership mechanics that the dash panel connectors develop contamination and stop making good contact with the cable. I pulled my cable loose from the panel and sprayed a small amount of DeOxIt (buy from a local electronics store) into the cable connectors. The other way to fix it is to replace the dash panel (cluster) at $850 for parts and who knows how much for labor. on mine it was a loose connector behind the dash, check to make sure the plug is latched There is a recall on this. It is the ground wire for the dash not tight enough. Dealer should fix for free. Although, not sure if this would also cause airbag light to come on. It will cause all gauges to go to zero while driving.
If the light is on, the computer has detected a malfunction. You will need to take in for service, so a qualified technician can repair cause of malfunction.
The only way to switch off the airbag light is to remove the airbag light or remove the airbag light fuse. The airbag light fuse will disable several other instrument panel warning lights.
Yes, a blown or missing fuse can cause the airbag light to stay on.
Could be as simple as a blown fuse. Alot of crawler guys pull the fuse when playing and the light comes on.
For the airbag light to turn off, you'll need to repair the cause of the airbag malfunction, or disable the airbag by using a BMW scan tool or other software.
replace airbag sensors, or fix the damage around them (front end damage i would assume)

The airbag light turns on when the airbag computer detects a malfunction and sets a code.
The airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may NOT be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked RIGHT AWAY." Always wear your seatbelt!!! On my 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.
Have a trained technician check it for codes and repair the cause.
No it will not.
Once you have repaired the cause of the light, it will reset itself.Once you have repaired the cause of the light, it will reset itself.
