  1. I had the same problem with mine a couple of months ago. I unhooked the battery and took the seats out of the car and cleaned up all the connections really well with CRC Contact Cleaner. Once the contact cleaner had time to dry I took the plugs and unplugged them and plugged them back in a few times and it took care of the problem. Once I connected the battery again, I used my durametric tool to reset the light. If the light comes back on, you might want to try the entire process again. I know it took me 3 or 4 times of trying to finally get the light to stay out. Worth noting that the airbag light will not go out simply by disconnecting and reconnecting the battery. You must have some kind of scan tool capable of resetting the airbag light in this car. Here is a link to the CRC Cleaner I used: https://www.amazon.com/CRC-Plastic-Contact-Cleaner-Aerosol/dp/B000BXKZVA/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3LYGP94AEV182&keywords=crc+contact+cleaner&qid=1569869833&sprefix=crc+%2Caps%2C171&sr=8-3
  2. Would the CV joint give any other indication that they are bad? I have never gotten any noise out of them.
  3. Hey all, I have a 1999 2.5 Boxster with a 5 speed. I have been auto-crossing the car a few times this summer and started to get the strange noise and vibration out of the car. The noise and vibration only happen during hard cornering while auto-crossing. The tires are brand new and don't show any signs of a rub or making contact with something in the wheel well. When driving the car normally on the street, it rides great with no noise or vibration. I have never had any sort of play with the shift knob in the car and never had any trouble finding a gear. Also I haven't had the 3000 rpm vibration that is associated with a bad motor mount. The transmission mounts look perfect with no signs of leaks. The CV axles look good and aren't torn or ripped. I was starting to wonder if maybe this sound and vibration might have something to do with the Automatic Brake Differential that was an option on this car (Code 222, 224). The car does have the TC button on the dash and it made no difference whether this was on or off during the run. The noise and vibration the car makes almost reminds me of when you are hard on the brakes and ABS kicks in. Once the car is out of the corner everything returns to normal. The little information light that flashes when TC is applied never flashes while it is making the noise and vibration. If anyone has any knowledge of what this might be, I would be most appreciative. I am still in the early stages of diagnosing the issue so I might be a little vague. I am very happy to provide more information if someone needs it. I just want to pinpoint if this is normal or not before I go replacing parts!
