E36 Airbag fail

5 posts in this topic

I have a 1990 325I with the Airbag circuit board in the steering wheel which has fried it's self,

Any one know how to fix it or have a second hand steering wheel with a working Airbag there is nothing else wrong with the car

would hate to have to sell it for parts,

Robert.

It’ll certainly be cheaper to get a new steering wheel, but worse case and you really like the car... you can decommission the airbag and get a lvvt cert for it.

Have you got anyone nearby who specialises in electronics? Most places that do electronics repairs will probably be able to at least diagnose it, if not fix any blown components. If you can ID the blown component I'd be happy to swap it out for you if no one else can.

If not, I'm sure there will be spares somewhere.

I have a couple of old steering wheels and airbags, what does your look like?

Note sure mine are 1990 old but there might be something in there for you.

$60 if you want it.
