 My passenger air bag light continues to go on and off at random intervals (ie regardless of someone being in the seat, driving conditions, etc). this started one day when i turned my vehicle on after normal operations. this is a well documented problem with mini coopers made after 2005, there should be a recall for this safety problem.

 Upon starting my car in the parking lot at the end of a work day, an indicator light came on in my 2007 mini cooper indicating a problem with the air bag. my mechanic was able to determine that the problem was with the driver's side air bag (code 93a8 stage 1). he reset the light and the same problem occurred a few days later. he checked the code again and it was the same. as a result, he contacted the nearest mini service center. although this is a known problem with the air bag connection, mini charges about $600 to replace it even though no accident had occurred, no hard stops, nothing to trigger the air bag. until the problem is fixed, the driver's side air bag will not deploy in the case of an accident.

 I was driving on a houston, tx freeway going 60 mph when the car to the left of me suddenly swerved directly into my driver side. the other car, which was a honda passport suv, hit my entire driver side from rear bumper to my door to the front bumper. i was driving a 2007 mini cooper. at 60 mph, my side airbags did not deploy! the impact was direct and at 60 mph. surely there must be some defect with the side airbags.
