Hi All
OK replaced the seat control switch module, now Airbag light is on
Can members please share What / Which Software or Device Unit to use/purchase to clear the error ?

I see on "that" auction site there is a "B800 Airbag Reset Tool Diagnostic Scanner Code Reader"  not expensive, but does it do the job?

thanks all
regards
Rich

Better off getting a c110 or a c310 scanner to turn off warnings.
Well that's what i and many other members use.

I bought a Creator C310 from Amazon, Cost £44.99 works great and has brilliant feedback.

Thanks for all the feedback
Will I need to purchase the BMW 20 Pin to OBD2 16 Pin Scanner Connector Adapter Cable also to use the
C310 scanner or can it be plugged into the 16 pin socket inside the vehicle?
thanks

OK ALL
Still pondering which model to purchase??
Which out of the two models, Creator C110 or C310 scanner's is the better model / best value for money?
Can you achieve more with the one model than the other??
thanks

Have a look on Amazon and compare the two.
My preference was the 310, that is why I bought it.
