Hi,
Today I got an alert in the BMW app about a planned SW upgrade related to the airbag warning light fault.
The OTA (RSU) will be implemented no later then 2022-06-10.

I'm really happy about this since I had a workshop visit planned for SW upgrade due to different SW bugs that I now can cancel.
This is the first RSU that I ever done, so its going to be interesting to learn how its done.
I'm in Sweden, driving an Ix40 on SW 11/2021.26

Hi, my update was done today as I had the attached fault keep coming up so booked the car in for that and they advised there was a recall re the airbag fault. Apparently the drive assistance fault I was getting was already part of the update for the airbag recall fault.
Although I could override the drive assistance fault I didn't have blind spot or collision assistance active so I would switch of the ignition, open the door and restart the car and most times the fault didn't occur until I started the car again but not every time.
Hope this helps if you experience the drive assistance fault.

Yes, the airbag "fix" will update all modules to the latest SW stand so I also expect other glitches from my early SW to be corrected.
Do I understand you right, you went to a workshop to get the SW update? Or did you get the OTA update?

Hi Rickardg

Yes I took the car to the dealership as I was going away for 3 weeks this weekend and would be covering a large amount of miles. They had the car for half a day.
