England passenger seat belt tensioners error

Hi, I've just checked for faults using a cheap cable off eBay and program called INPA this is wat I've got (had to translate via google )

ignition circuit zk2 / passenger seat belt tensioners error aktwell available resistant to large error not sporadically

Any ideas? Is it part of the common fault I've read about?

Hi ya

What mini do you have, from the sounds of it gen 1

Have you cleared the fault to see if it reappears.

You will most probably find if you clear the fault and the code comes back it's the connectors under the passenger seat.
Disconnect your battery first neg then poss leave it for 5 min
Disconnect the connectors under the seat check the wiring and connector are ok,reconnect them. then reconnect the battery poss then neg.
See if the code is present.

Have you got the dis software

Hi ya

No problem everyone has to start somewhere I was that person once. Lots of guys helped me :-)
When you got the lead from ebay what software came with it was it like this

BMW Diagnostic Software Cable lead Ediabas Inpa DIS SSS OBD lead | eBay

The DIS software is bmw's diagnostic tool, inpa is a early version and very basic diagnostic tool
I find DIS a lot easier to use and much better to trace faults with.

Have a look on youtube there are some vids on it.

Hope this helps

Cool good get the DIS loaded up its is much better to use.
It has more functions and easier to understand once you get used to it. The main thing is don't read to much in to the fault codes to start off with.
If you have a codes clear them to start with, then see if it returns then follow it throw.
or you will end up chasing something that is not there

Hope thus helps

Ok

Sounds like the connector under the passengers seat you will have to have a good look at the wiring and plugs.

Also check the wire from the seat belt tensioner to the plug I have seen it where the wire gets damaged on the seat slider rail.


Hope this helps
