Air Bag Issue, 2001 BMW 3 Series


Joe Marconi

Recommended Posts

The other day we were diagnosing an air bag fault on a 2001 BMW 325. My Snap-On Scanner pulled codes for the passenger side seat sensor and pre-tension. My tech also found some information on IATN and Identifix, but could not trace down the problem.

 

He finally called Identifx and was told that the information to the scanner is wrong. The actual problem area is the driver side air bag located on the pillar.

 

When we pulled the side air bag down on the driver’s side we found a broken connector at the air bag and fixed the problem.

 

We find these problems way too often, particularly with European cars.

 

I will log this with the NASTF.

      Let us never forget what happen on Sept 11, 2001:
      On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist group al Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks, which triggered major U.S. initiatives to combat terrorism and defined the presidency of George W. Bush.

      I have heard from a few shop owners, that they are afraid to send their techs to a training event because they fear that they will be recruited by another shop.  How do you feel about this?
      Perhaps it's time to sit down with your techs and see if all is ok?  People quit for a number of reasons. Should we get ahead of this, if this is a real problem these days?
