    WTB, want to rent: SIR3 Airbag reset tool for certain E30s and E24s

    Unfortunately, I triggered the SRS light when I was cleaning up some wires under the dash. I desperately need the SIR3 tool so I can reset the light before my state safety inspection this month. Does anyone have one I can buy or rent? I have already tried the Carsoft 6.5 software and jumper wire trick with no success. Apparently the wiring is incomplete between the SRS module and the 20 pin connector on certain E30/E24 models, and the SIR3 tool is the only way to reset the light on those cars. Thanks in advance!

    The SIR3 tool plugs into the 20 pin connector, so that isn't the problem...
    But you CAN reset the SRS light with INPA, CarSoft isn't good at this on the early cars.

    Thanks for the quick response. I think there's a way to connect the SIR3 tool directly to the plug at the SRS module under the kick panel. This is the thread that describes that procedure. https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...mexx-SIR3-tool

    And INPA sounds like a great tool...appreciate the suggestion.
