Oh so it's not the tensioner but just the belt receptacle that fixed it in your car? Part # 99680318309? That's a much easier fix! I'll order the parts tonight thank you!
Not yet. I've been busy with other projects. How tough was it to replace the tensioner? Where did you get the parts from.
That part is over $1,000. If I knew it needed to be replaced I'd be okay with that. I don't want to buy it to find out I don't need it. Does anyone else have any ideas? Thanks in advance.
How did you get Durametric to specify that part? I have the exact same B05 code in my '02 C2. I think we have the exact same error here and hopefully the same solution.
I have cleared it with the Durametric scanner and it just pops up again a moment later. I am wondering if it's a loose wire. I just don't want to set the airbag off by mistake.
I pulled the seat belt out several times and let it reel back in. It rolls back up correctly. The code keeps popping up. Can I just take that trim off and check the wiring? I don't want to set the airbag off.
Thank you. Would you recommend I just clean the connections up or is this something I have to bring to a dealership? I have a lot of mechanical and electronic experience. Where is the tensioner located? Where is the triggering unit located? Thanks again.
obin robinson started following '02 996 Airbag light on with Belt Tensioner Error Code 23
The Airbag light came on in my 2002 996 while I was on a long drive. I used my Durametric scanner and found that the fault says: Airbag B05 Current Fault Codes 23 Belt tensioner, drivers --- I've checked the archives and could not find this exact issue. I've cleaned the contacts with spray contact cleaner but the code did not clear. Do I need to replace the belt buckles? What is my next course of action? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
