 Idrive displays seat belt and airbag warning on passenger front seat when occupied by passenger. *tr
 Vehicle keeps saying passenger restraint malfunction. passenger air bag will not deploy in an event of an accident. there was a recall for the year 2004-2006 models, for the same reason (passenger restraint malfunction). the recall does not cover the 2007, 2008, 2009 model. the car has never been in an accident, and i feel like if it does, my passenger air bag should deploy when there is a body occupying that seat. the car says the passenger air bag will not deploy when an accident occurs, this is a serious defect. this should not be a problem in any vehicle, let alone a bmw.
 The passenger restraint airbag/seat belt warning light show up because the mat sensor under passenage seat is broken by normal use. bmw refuse to honor the free fix for this issue and wanted to charge around $1300 for the repair the safty issue.
