  1. Yes, or if the seats were removed without disconnecting the battery.
  2. It is always helpful to list the exact model and year of your car.
  3. You want a switched source - only on when the ignition is on. The lighter is always on. There is a connector in the center lower console that has +12VDC always on, +12VDC switched, and ground. That is your best source. Do a search here that connector has been discussed many many times.
  4. All of those codes are likely due to bad grounds covered by the TSB. They should have been fixed years ago a dealer.
  5. Porsche produced a TSB for this. Chances are you have bad grounds under the seats and/or worn/dirty seat belt buckles. If the TSB (for the grounds) has been done then likely that your buckles are worn out.
  6. Yeah, don't talk to people who are in this business and deal with similar situations daily (shop owners and former Porsche employees) - yeah, ask people who give uneducated opinions on other forums. Actually, my advice is talk to an attorney and ask him if it could affect your defense if you are involved in an accident.
  7. 996.618.262.00 is for MY 1997 only 996.618.260.06 is for MY 1998 to MY 2000 996.618.262.02 is for MY 2001 on
  8. Fault 23 Possible cause of fault: - Incorrect coding - Short circuit to B+/ground or open circuit in the wiring between the driver's seat belt tensioner and the control module - Driver's seat belt tensioner faulty - Triggering unit for airbag faulty
  9. You may then have a problem with the radio. Either repair (Becker Autosound) or replacement.
