How To Troubleshoot
BMW Restraint System
Malfunction?
Here, we'll discuss what
you can do to deal with
the restraint system
malfunction in your
BMW.
But, for starters, let's find out
what it is and what it does.
BMW Restraint
System- What Is It?
Have you ever wondered,
what makes your airbags
spring into action in the
event of a crash?
Well, the answer is- the
restraint system.
So, what exactly is the
restrain system?
Well, you can think of it
as an advanced safety
feature.
Among other things, it
can deploy airbags and
activate seat belt pre-
tensioners in the event of
a potential collision.
And, to do so, it employs
an array of sensors and
hardware.
Failure of such an
important feature can
put your road safety at
risk.
Do you want to know
about the reasons your
BMW restraint system
may malfunction?
Please keep reading…
BMW Restraint
System Malfunction-
Possible Reasons
SRS control module
is faulty
SRS control module is
nothing but a small
computer unit.
Its job is to regulate
airbag deployment in
the event of a crash.
If it stops working due to
some reason, your
restraint system will
malfunction.
Bad seat belt
pretensioner
Another common
reason behind restraint
system malfunction in a
car is a faulty seat belt
pre-tensioner.
What's a seat belt pre-
tensioner, you asked?
Well, this is what locks
the seat belt in place to
secure the driver in his
seat in the event of a
crash.
Bad passenger
occupancy sensor
The job of this sensor is
to determine if a
passenger is in the seat
or not.
It helps the restraint
system to determine
whether the airbag
should be deployed in
the event of an accident.
So, obviously... the failure
of such a critical sensor
could render your BMW
restraint system useless.
Flaws in the wiring
harness
The wiring harness, if
faulty, can also cause
the restraint system in
your BMW to
malfunction.
Sum Up
Restraint system is a vital
safety feature.
That’s why if you want
to be safe while driving
your BMW, ensure the
upkeep of its restraint
system.
