I know it's probably a long shot and the first on here lol but hoping a fellow member slash BMW owner can help me out. I have to replace my drivers side seat buckle assembly due to going bad and causing the air bag light to stay on for a good bit. I can change the buckle but will need to reset the light.

Hoping someone has a Peak or other SRS reset tool for a 1995 M42 (318ti). If so I am willing to pay for shipping both ways plus pay a little extra for your time, trade a soap for its use, what ever.

If the stars have aligned and lady luck is smiling on me shoot me a PM.

Thanks all!

There's one on Fleabay for $25  Thumbsup


You may be able to use an INPA cable to reset it as well.

I saw that one but it's for models newer than 2000. The one I need handles BMW's from 94-2000 and runs $100+. Thanks for looking for me though!

I used an INPA cable to turn off my seat belt chimes and a few other things that I was told could only be done at the dealership.  You hook it up to a laptop..run the software... go to the airbag settings...clear faults...Throw the data cable in a drawer and probably never have a use for it again.

I looked into the INPA cable and so far its a no go. Mine is a 95 e36 which is non OBD2. I would have to get an adapter that would connect to mine plus a dedicated laptop to do it with. Still trying to track everything down to get a total cost of the cabel and adapter.

No go with my uncle. I will not give up though. If you haven't got her fixed up by the time In get back to AL maybe I can find something. I have a former co worker /friend that owes me a favor and owns an import auto shop. Maybe he has it,and he remembers he owes me a favor.

Thanks again everyone for your help. I wound up sourcing one for $30 shipped from Hong Kong which works good for me. I actually ran into a couple people on a BMW forum I frequent that I can help with it as well so win win!
