You'll need to take it to a dealer or mechanic with a proper diagnostic tool or use a 3rd party reset tool yourself. They plug it into a socket under the dash, read the fault code and attempt to clear it. This can be quite expensive and if you have a poor connection under the passenger seat then it may come straight back on.

I bought the B200 airbag reset tool (google or ebay search) to reset ours. I disconnected the passenger occupancy sensor (under the seat) cleaned the contacts, reconnected it then taped the connectors together with electrial tape. Did the reset with the tool and the fault never reoccurred while we had that car.

Buying the reset tool cost less than the quote from a BMW main dealer to investigate the fault YMMV.

Dark Silver 2006/7 cooper s reset tool

hi! ive been reading through a lot of posts and can see that there is a tool for resetting the air bag light for mini's up to 2004 (the B200 tool) but is there a tool for doing it on a 2006/7 cooper s? can the same tool still be used?

ive found these people but unsure weather it will work? Ive asked them but they haven't replied...

Does anyone know of a solution tool for this model of mini?

Mine is on too!! I took it in to a Mini garage once for something and when I got it back it was on. I had such an awful time with them that I didn't even bother to call and tell them. I totally should have, didn't know it was a well known problem!
