Not sure this item fits your car?

Click on the green button at the bottom right side of the page and send us the VIN of your car (17 characters Vehicle Identification Number also called a chassis number, item E on the European vehicle registration document). We will check compatibility.


This offer includes:
- seat mat emulator with original plug
- seat belt emulator (it switches off the unfasten seat belt sound and light)
- detailed installation instruction (with video and photos, will be sent to your email address after we send the item)
- our technical support until fixing the problem
- 24 months warranty

The emulator removes defective occupancy mat error. Instead of replacing faulty seat mat (which requires de-installation of the seat) you can plug in the emulator which is a safe and inexpensive solution. The device sends a signal about the presence of a passenger on the seat (even in his absence). The airbag warning light should be turned off. In case of an accident, airbag will ALWAYS deploy - with or without a passenger on the seat. The device is for diagnostic use only. Do not not place the child seat on the front seat!


For US version BMW i3 with 3 wired seat occupancy sensor - please check it before purchase. Doesn't fit 2 wired seat mat.

- BMW i3 I01 (2013-present)


1. Problem appeared - airbag warning light or SRS error is on. What should I do first?
Scan your car with a diagnostic tool. Take a photo of the fault code and send us for verification. Do not use non-original INPA, Carly or cheap chinese diagnostic scanners - they often show incorrect fault codes or have problems clearing fault codes!!!! Please use Foxwell or iCarsoft. Please be advised the errors appearing on the dashboard/iDrive are NOT an indication that your seat mat is broken. BMW cars have a few sensors that can cause the SRS/airbag error - for example: airbag control unit, crash sensor, seat belt pre-tensioners or BST (Battery Safety Terminal).


If the errors are "short circuits" or "open circuits" we advise you to visit your local car electrician before purchase. Usually these errors indicate problems with electric installation (there might be damaged/loose wires or connectors). The emulator will not solve these problems and will not work with damaged electric installation. It will be like plugging an electronic device to a power socket with damaged or disconnected wires.

2. Emulator installation
Turn the ignition off. Find the seat occupancy sensor plug under the passenger seat and replace it with the emulator's plug. Install seat belt emulator and reset the fault codes using a diagnostic tool. Turn the ignition on.

Read our installation instruction


The emulator might not work with all cars right away. BMW used different solutions in various years. Contact us if the device did not work right away. We will guide you how to solve the problem in your car, replace the emulator with a new one or cover the return shipping and give you a full refund.

The device is for diagnostic use only. The emulator is not a factory equipment of BMW and should only be used as a short term temporary occupancy bypass solution until you replace the original seat sensor. We advise you to inform all users of your vehicle about the presence of the emulator. Do not not place the child seat on the front seat! Be sure that fitting this emulator is not against any law in your country. By purchasing you agree that we are not liable for any damages or losses that may arise from the use of the emulator and we are not responsible for any problems on your airbag system as this is a solution for a faulty passenger seat mat only. Under no circumstances, including but not limited to negligence, shall the seller be held liable for direct or indirect damages including but not limited to harm to any equipment and/or for personal injury/death arising out of the use, or the inability to use the bypass item sold on this website.
