Why does the air bag indicator light for my BMW mini stay on?

BMW mini cooper 2001 reg air bag indicator does not turn off when ignition is gained.Stays on permanently then

If you have had an airbag disconnected for service (as an example, when replacing a window motor, often an aftermarket shop will disconnect the airbag then turn on the ignition to test the window motor) the only way to reset the light is to take it to your dealer. If disconnection is required on future work, only disconnect the airbag with the ignition off. You must have the airbag connected when the ignition is on (like when testing the new window motor) to avoid the problem.
