The seat belt and airbag warning light are on in car, based on my research, I've found that this is manufacture fault, when I called BMW dealer they told me that my car is not covered under the recall campaign for the same manufacture fault. I think BMW manufacturer is at libel at present, let's just hope nothing happened to myself and family while operating this vehicle. I want BMW to add my car to the recall campaign because this is a safety issue.

The passenger side air bag warning light is on and will not turn off. I have called the BMW dealership and they stated that they would have to run a diagnostics test which will cost over $100 just to find out what is wrong with it. They stated that my VIN number was one of the cars that was fixed in a previous recall for the same issue. I told them I do not have the money to pay to see what is wrong it. What if the passenger airbag fails and someone is actually injured do to this issue. The warning notification on the dash has been on for two years. The car currently has 80,000. I don't understand why the same issue happens for a previous recall and they cannot take ownership of the recall. Very disappointed. The car has a very high price tag and you would expect some sort of ownership and honesty from the BMW corporation.

Warning light appeared on dashboard about a passenger restraint malfunction. The seatbelt signal and airbag signal remained illuminated on the dashboard. Records show that the passenger seat occupancy sensor was replaced Aug 21, 2007 at first owners expense. The light came back on after we purchased the vehicle and were were told that there has been no recall for our VIN #. This vehicle was manufactured during the time span of the recall that BMW issued in 2008 (which happens to be after the occupancy sensor had been replaced at owners expense). Why is this vehicle not included in the recall? why is the replacement occupancy sensor failing for a 2nd time?.
