greenrs replied to greenrs's topic in 996 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 4S, Targa)Thanks Loren, I would probably bet a dollar that the buckle has not been done, and maybe the light has been removed because of the fault, that it doesn't go out. So I am not sure still whether that is the real cause of the Code 30, as the buckles seem to throw different numbers, though it might be an AUS model thing. It is possible that with fixing the seat-belt buckle, fixing the possible bag frame in the wheel, and making sure the other airbag connections are secure, it all might just come good. Slowly working through all the jobs and fixes needed on this car.

So only managed to see a black square of tape expertly placed over the Airbag light (ON all the time), only because of driving it in the sun with the top down. Been concentrating on other parts of the car. Any-who, that has lead to seeing that the Seatbelt light doesn't appear at all, and closely related, the horn didn't have a fuse in it at all. So this has brought up a question, the Codes reported, the electrical drawings (Bentley), ....while they say "passenger" or "driver" side, does this in fact relate to the left and right side of the car when it is the probably more com
A quick not entirely successful update, but still something. Was checking the roof pump fluid level and fixing a rear window reg. After putting it back together, the clam would not work, so cleared the time-out fault and did a calibration, the roof then worked completely. Checked the alarm status, roof up still a double beep with the interior sensor reported, but, roof down now there is no single beep that used to be there. Tested opening the center compartment, alarm went off, hooray.
Thanks Loren, The Durametric reported 2 alarm options, 32 and 48, but the 48 report info indicated type 32. Both had Fault code 32, Passenger Compartment Monitoring Sensor.. the I48 also indicated, "short to ground". Same code I got before swapping out the module, and after....996.618.210.02 Any thoughts welcome, Cheers
Thanks Loren, I'll get it plugged in again this week and check, ........my laptop broke so I have to get someone else's The alarm wasn't really a high priority at the moment, but the windshield is being replaced, so if that provides any needed access at the time to the LED.

Alarm does the double beep with the roof up and the single with it down. Last time checked with the Durametric it indicated the sensor. So got a 2nd hand sensor from the UK, and tried it, no different, no idea if it is working or if testing it is possible. With the roof down it takes it out of circuit, so it is maybe something else. Maybe that code is generic for an interior switch somewhere. It has had a replacement stereo and amp. Whether
