New to the forum and need some help. Have just purchased a Z4 2.5 2006 with the airbag light on. I have scanned it and it says Left pretensioner ignition short to ground. I checked all the wiring at connectors and such under both seats, but found no issues. However if the drivers seat is removed and the faults are checked that is the only fault present.It would appear that the fault is before the seat and as such is not getting to check the seat before it comes across this failure. If i do the same on the passenger side i get faults for all the components on that side. So i assume the fault is in the wiring in the car. I have removed the carpet on the drivers side and checked all the wiring from the Airbag module fitted into the sill to the earth point by the drivers right foot but cant find anything wrong with the wiring.
Can anyone point me in the right direction. I'm using a Hella Gutmann Mega Macs to scan the vehicle and that gives me the code 39005 but the description as as above.
Many Thanks in advance.
