2006 BMW 750 li. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle defective air bag system. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, due to the air bag light illuminating. He was informed the indicator light was on due to a defect in the drivers side seat sensor for the air bag system. He was also informed the passenger side seat sensor had been identified as defective in a prior service bulletin, and had it been the passenger side, there would have been no charge to replace it.

Vehicle had indication of passenger mat sensor failure. Spoke to dealership with no luck on coverage. Called recall number and was told there was only a recall on vehicle for transmission going into neutral. Vehicle was serviced at dealership for water pump failure a few months ago and I asked about recalls and was told there were none for my VIN. This is the 3rd thing to fail in less than a year of purchase. 1st was door actuator failure, 2nd water pump failure, and now mat sensor.

Driving, with my wife as passenger, on 118 fwy, in simi valley California at approx. 11:30 pm on June 6 when air bags deployed without warning, and without collision or impact. Engine was disabled and I was miraculously able to coast the vehicle to the side of the road, despite lack of vision from airbag and from dust inside vehicle. No indication of any impact whatsoever. Vehicle was completely disabled and I was barely able to get vehicle out of traffic lane. Dashboard had two messages: 1. "engine malfunction" 2. "fault in passenger restraint system affecting airbag, belt tensioner or belt force limiter" vehicle was towed to a local BMW vehicle on Monday, June 10, and I have been waiting to hear something/anything from BMW factory ever since. Clearly, this accident could very well have been a fatality had there been traffic on the freeway or had we not been extremely fortunate.

The seat sensor is failing on the driver side reporting a driver restraint system fault. Causing error of airbag system. Possibly due to massage seat leaking. Read numerous reports about same error fault on bimmerfest.com forums.

The passenger airbag off warning lamp lights up with a passenger in the front seat. This has been occurring intermittently since I bought the new car. After learning there had been a recall for airbag failure, I asked the dealer to check into this problem. The dealer said there wasn't a recall for my car and we would have to pay to have it checked.
