  1. My 2005 Boxster (987.1) Base has been triggering an airbag light since I bought it. My durametric shows the code to be 8024 "Driver's thorax airbag short circuit to ground". I can reset this fault code and it stays good for a while and them returns sometimes the same day and sometimes it may be a week but it always comes back with the same exact code. According to the TSB "Diagnostic Trouble Codes in Airbag Control Unit" found here under Boxster TSB's, this fault code is a ground fault or damaged driver's side backrest wiring harness and the solution is to replace the wiring harness.

  2. Another update. Hats off to jl-c. When I originally installed these new light fixtures there are two connections per light. That is 4 total electrical connections. Now remember that I installed them twice. That is eight tries to achieve LIGHT. I'm sure we could calculate the odds of connecting them exactly the same way every time but those odds would not be as good as the odds that I am severly electrically challenged! And believe it or not I even knew that LED's are polarity specific. Long story short, after reading jl-c's golden advice, I went back out in the garage and used my vo

They fit perfectly into the bumper and the connections were simple direct fit connections (I also liked the look of these new lights). However, they would not illuminate. No DLR, No fog lights (tried every light switch position). I pulled them back off and checked the voltage
  4. I have to admit that I have been lurking on this site for a couple of years now. I purchased a 2002 996 a while back and had a lot of general questions. It turns out a lot of people had similar questions so I never felt the need to post. I owe lots of thanks to several members (THANKS!). Fast forward a couple of years and I have enjoyed my 996 so much I went out and found a 987-1 (2005 Boxster Base, 2.7L, Manual, U.S., Silver with Black Top and Black Interior). This is also a fun car. Now for the question: I am considering upgrading the fog light assemblies and the amber side marker
