Hi All!

Recently picked up myself a 2003 R50 MC!

Had a busted engine mount (fixed) and an airbag light.
Figured I'd get a cable compatible with my vehicle to use with INPA to clear the airbag light. My MC is the '03 so it has the MR4 airbag system in it. I read the codes for the airbag module but have no clue what it means

279734
.

However...I do understand the "240 internal fault/error" message which has popped up around the interwebs. I understand it is a dreaded, permanent error that cannot be coded out. But. I have also read that you can flash the "EEPROM" to fix it.

I'm not too fussed about flashing this or that, I do have a couple questions though.

What do I need to purchase? I have never touched anything airbag related before, well I have but not this level. Do I need to code the new module to the car? If so, how?


Many thanks in advance, find attached the error screenshot.

For reference,
I have access to INPA and NCS.

Sorry it means nothing at all even when translated.

You'll need actual MINI or generic error codes.

Could be wrong but in this forum I've not seen any experts with Rheingold/IPNA skills to help out others.
