Toolpants is right, low coolant level.

is there any issues that can arise if the coolant level is too high?

Also, the airbag light, I called a Porsche Dealer in pasadena that I had never been to, and asked them if they had records of my car being worked on at there dealer before my ownership, AND THEY DID, it was taken in once for an Airbag light issue, I asked her details on the fix, She said they took the gauges assembly off and gave the airbag ground wire a better ground source. Also she said they replaced a seat belt buckle in the process.

It is getting colder in Cincinnati, OH and I have been having to shut off my Boxster to reset the flashing coolant light after it warms up past 100 degrees. But once I shut off the car and restart it the light goes out. Can anyone give me some advise on this. Thanks for any help.

Also my air bag sensor light is staying on any way to reset this without taking it to the dealer?

These have both been been covered here many times - please try using the Search feature.

You will need the Durametric Software (about $250) or a shop with a PST2 or PIWIS tester to reset the airbag light. What is more important is to read the airbag fault code(s) to see what caused it to come on in the first place.

There's an overflow tube so I don't think a high coolant level would be an issue. It would just spill out on street.

If you look in your owner's manual on page 62 (for the '00 model), it shows a flashing light indicating low coolant OR a fault in the engine compartment blower fan. If you coolant level is good, check to see if your engine compartment fan is coming on. If not, it can be the fan itself, the relay for the fan or the temperature sensor for the fan that's mounted in the passenger side "spider" between intake tubes. The temp sensor was my problem awhile ago and I got the same flashing light.

If your coolant is low, check under the carpet in the trunk to see if your reservoir is leaking from behind.

Finally, like Loren said, get the Durametric tool. It will tell you if it's the seatbelt buckle or something else in the system before you clear the light. It will save you way more than the $250 you pay for it in the long run.
