Universal BMW 7 E65 seat occupancy sensor emulator
Product: Seat occupancy sensor emulator for BMW 7 Series E65, E66
The seat mat emulator is a diagnostic device, it sends to an airbag control unit the same signal as that sent by properly working seat occupancy sensor while a passenger is sitting. It turns off the airbag warning light (if it is caused by faulty seat occupancy sensor).
During the purchase you are asked to choose if you need the item for passenger or driver side seat and if there's 2 pin or 4 pin mat connector under the seat on your car. Please do not ignore it - these options are to help you choose the correct item for your car.

Emulator for passenger side seat - information
- Mat emulator
There are two types of the seat occupancy sensor on passenger side seat on E65/E66.
2 wired mat (2 pin mat connector) is usually on E65 up to 2004/5 EU version and up to 2003 US version.
3 wired mat (4 pin mat connector) is usually on E65 2005+ EU version and 2003+ US version.
To be sure which mat connector you have, please check it under the seat.
- Seatbelt emulator
After fitting the seat occupancy sensor emulator, a car computer sees the passenger side seat as occupied and asks to fasten seat belt - even if there's no one sitting in the seat. The solution for not driving with seat belt always fastened is connecting the seat belt emulator which turns off the seat belt warning light / sound.
Emulator for driver side seat - information
- Mat emulator
There is usually 2 wired seat occupancy sensor (2 pin mat connector) on driver side seat on every E65/E66 but to be 100% sure it will fit, please check it under the seat.
- Seatbelt emulator
After fitting the seat occupancy sensor emulator, a car computer sees the seat as occupied and asks to fasten seat belt.
We believe you fasten your seatbelt as a driver so the seat belt emulator is not included to the emulators for driver side seats.

You have to be aware of that there can be untypical mat, on your car and the emulator will not work there. In some US BMWs there were seat occupancy sensors that had unique signal - in such case it is needed to make an individual emulator for that one car basing on the faulty mat electronics.
