Well Good news The regional rep flew in to examine and rectify the situation, not a bad response time. 2nd day after my phone call to PCNA. Once again, thanks for the help Loren.
Thanks Loren, I appreciate the advice. I'll let these guys stab at it for another day or so. Would there be any chance of the body control module interfering with the airbag system?
rockhopper replied to icon's topic in 997-1 Series (Carrera, Carrera 4, Carrera 2S, Carrera 4S)What problems did you have?
Hey Loren, once again thanks for the reply. The Mechanic told me the code was 8034 as you expected. He says all the standard fixes have not remedied the problem. A odd thing occured testerday, The airbag code cleared itself and showed no instance of it in the dealer's computer interface. I picked the car up temporarily and drove it around that afternoon and cycled the ignition a number of times, the only odd occurance was that the TPMS needed to relearn the sensors when I parked it at a store, 3 minuets latter it found all the sensors again but no sign of airbag warnings. This morning after it got cold again the airbag light came back on when I started the vehicle. I always seems to occur when the vehicle gets cold outside at night. I'm located in Charlottesville VA and have been dealing with Crown porsche, there is another larger dealership in Richmond VA but I wanted the dealership that sold me the car to fix the issue since I've only managed to put 80 out of 230 total miles on the vehicle. I have told both PCNA and The dealership that I want a new vehicle if they cannot resolve this issue without a major teardown or time consuming procedure, doesn't seem like it should be my problem with a brand new vehicle. However I have no idea how PCNA will handle it.
Thank you very much for the reply Loren, I took your reply to the dealership this morning. Unfortunately the tech already has replaced the suspect connectors to no avail. He stated that he has ohmed all the wires and they all passed. From what I can tell gather, they fix the fault codes, it passes with no warnings and after the vehicle has set overnight it rears its head again at startup. He is now going to investigate the possibillity of a partially frayed wire in the passenger seat. According to the mechanic PCNA has no idea what is causing this problem.
Signed my paper work for my new 06 c4, started the car and the airbag light lit up. It's been back and forth to the dealer now 3 times always with same result. They have replaced a passenger seat air bag and the airbag control unit and tested all the wiring. The mechanic has no idea where to go next. Has anyone else experienced this. He stated something to the effect of replacing the entire wiring harness in the vehicle. Help, the service department has more miles on the vehicle than I do.
