Unhappy MINI Cooper 2007 Airbag sensor disabled

Hi there

I have a Mini Cooper 2007 .

I was moving my seat back and when I started the car I saw an "air bag failure", and the message tells me all Airbags are disabled...
I took it to a diagnostics centre and paid 60 ($90) for a complete factory reset. This worked for a week, but the alarm is back again.

The garage checked the connections under the seat, the first time, but couldn't find any loose connections.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Much appreciated.

Hello there,
I had a "Restraint System Failure" message in my 2007 Cooper S, with the airbag warning light on. The apparent cause was low voltage in the battery. The battery was replaced, the warnings reset and no problems since (Four months).

Look at the battery, if there is an indicator on the top, it should be green if the battery is OK. If the indicator is not green (or your battery does not have an indicator) get it checked for "battery health" - voltage and Cold Crank Output...If the battery is on its way out, then this could be causing the message.

Hope this is of some help.
