Restraint System Faulty error after taking seat out

I took the drivers seat out and (in hindsight foolishly) I turned the ignition on to rake the seat backward. After putting the seat back, I now get the Restraint System Faulty error.

I know there is nothing wrong and I have checked the connectors, so question is how do I reset this error message?

Is it as simple as a generic OBD2 reader, or do I need something more BMW specific?

it is a 'specific' airbag computer.

An OBD2 wont do it...and a BMW specific reader wont do it. There are spectiic airbag readers. (all sorts of sensors besides just airbags)

You want something that handles "SRS system" ... the ore expensive foxwells do, like nt630. Not sure about others.

Update. I purchased a Foxwell NT650 Elite, so that I could do other functions too, and cleared the codes easily. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
