Help Please with SSFA Satelit left front seat fault code

Post by vauxpartsuk » 09 Nov 2014, 20:53

Hi guys.... Had the car a week... Done a 140 round trip this weekend averaging around 42mpg which im happy with. but the airbag light keeps coming on saying

"Driver restraint system fault" Pics below.... The fault code is 9763 "Driver seat identification sensor open circuit - Intermittent

Now im naff with stuff like this.. Ive had a look under the seat and the black box and moved the plugs none felt loose??

Isit a case of taking them out and plugging back in again? If so... do i disconnect battery at all?

If not, is there anyone local who could fix it for me? Obviously id pay.... but i just want it all to be working with no "bings" when i start the car lol.

Any info would be great please!

Pics of what the message says is below... PS its a 2006 (56) 730D

I don't think we have any members nearby, but that code suggests the sensor in the seat is duff.....so the car 'thinks' the seatbelt is 'on' and the car being driven......without anyone on the driver's seat!.

Nothing is simple in the 7-series but shouldn't be expensive at a good indie. There used to be one in Bexley which was highly regarded, but I can't recall their name....
