Hi guys

Looking for a bit of info on by passing the active head rest in a 2011 e90,

Can you just do the old resistor trick ?? If so what is the best rate of resistor to use

Thanks Dan

Thanks for the info

I just pulled the active head rest loom out of the old seats and connected it up and fitted a 2.7 quarter amp resistor and job done so the new m sport seats are in and no airbag lights

Hey mate,

Please clarify. Is that a 2.7ohm 0.25watt resistor or a 2k7 0.25watt

BMW X3 2008 Head Restraint error code and Airbag light.
I had 0F "MRS: Head restraint front passenger" error code in OBDII scanner for my BMW 2008 X3. After going through all the BMW forums, i removed the passenger seat back panel. Two plastic plugs on the bottom that you have to pull down (not easy but doable using plier and revet clip removal tool). I noticed headrest airbag wire which connects to the bottom of the seat airbag module had broken ( cut in wire ). Not sure how this happened, but had recently changed the new battery in dealer and had replaced airbag recall sensors. Whatever, finally able to fix the Airbag light by joining the wire and sealing them with electrical insulation tape.
All set. Thanks to this forum.

I have the PRS (passenger restaint system) error for my 2011 E93 M3 convertible. BMW dealer says the fault is the active headrest giving flaky resistance readings. Problem started out of the blue a few weeks ago when I had folded the passenger seat forward to grab items out of the back seat.

Think this is the same issue? Where did you get the tools needed to get in there and have a look?
