Has your airbag (SRS) light ever come on unexpectedly? Have you been driving around ignoring the SRS light? Do you know exactly why your SRS light came on but you have no way to reset it? Are you tired of relying on someone else to get the SRS light reset? If yes, then the R5/SRS was made for you!

Wouldn't it be great to have a good idea of what's wrong before you go in for a repair? Or, better yet, if it's a minor problem, like when racers swap in a racing seat and trigger the airbag light, you can scan it, fix it, and reset it yourself!

Examples of common situations that cause the SRS/Airbag light:
  • A loose connector
  • Alarm or stereo installation
  • Seat removal/upgrade
  • Seat belt replacement
  • Steering wheel removal/upgrade
  • Fuse removal
  • Corroded connection
  • Unplugged wiring harness
  • Body work
  • Engine compartment work

  • What is the SRS light trying to tell me?
    The BMW SRS light can mean any number of things from serious to minor. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair of a broken part, but often it's merely indicating that a circuit critical to proper SRS operation was temporarily disconnected (i.e. while you were installing a stereo, alarm, racing seat or steering wheel). Without the R5/SRS, it's anyone's guess. You're stuck staring at your SRS light until you have time to go pay someone to diagnose and reset it.

    Don't know which R5 SRS to get? Check out the Application Guide to see which connector is right for you.

    Important Safety Information
  • Never use the R5/SRS to reset the airbag light without first checking and understanding the code.
  • Always disconnect the main car battery before servicing or repairing the SRS/Airbag system.
  • Never service, repair or troubleshoot your SRS/Airbag system while a person is in the car. This includes use of the R5/SRS or any other SRS related tool.
  • Keep your head and body at least 24 inches away from any airbag while servicing, repairing or troubleshooting the SRS system. This includes use of the R5/SRS or any other SRS related tool.
  • Always double check your repair by driving the car over 15 MPH and then re-checking the code.
  • Many repairs to malfunctioning or damaged SRS hardware require proper training and equipment and should not be attempted otherwise.
  • Read entire R5/SRS owners manual before use.

  • Some people unwisely ignore the airbag warning light. Doing so puts them and their passengers at unnecessary risk. Taking immediate action is the only wise choice. The Peake Research R5/SRS can quickly help you determine the general nature of the problem. While many SRS system repairs are not recommend for those without the proper tools and training, you will at least have information to help you make intelligent choices about what action to take. Plus, you will enjoy the ability to talk intelligently to your repair technician!

    Buy and use at your own risk.
