Hi nicpy,

I have the same problem in my Z since yesterday. Can you tell me how you fixed this issue (did you do it yourself or had to have it fixed at a repair shop)?

Thanks mate

I did the fix myself. Access to the connector isn`t that easy, but is doable, from underneath is the easiest but done more by feel than sight. You will need to remove the front part of the under shield, on the driver’s side behind the grill about half way up there is the connector for the pedestrian impact ribbon sensor, which was my problem, and this had become partially disconnected. Not the easiest thing to do because of the angle but it needed a good push on so that it clicks securely in to place. That did the trick for me. :beer:

nicpy, Is this strip attached to the bumper or the actual car chassis?

Another problem nailed!! This one turned out to be a faulty connection at the pedestrian impact ribbon behind the front bumper. Fault sign on ignition on gone. 👏 👏
Thank you so much for the report as after much messing about with the seat connectors to no avail I read this and then remembered I had a new air con condenser fitted a few months ago. I did not consider that the ribbon would have give this fault tbh. Anyway long story short I undid the bumper and checked the connector and it was NOT fully seated. I removed and re seated and annoying intermittent fault (mostly on) has gone. As many have reported I took it to the local garage and their brand new Snap-on diagnostic could not read the fault (reset yes but not read it) !!!
