Air Bag Warning Light


Recommended Posts

After filling up my car this morning with gas the dash air bag warning light came on and remained on. I have stopped and restarted the car several time, but the light remains on. Any suggestions other than the dealer. Thanks.

On MY99 cars there is a TSB (8/99 6924 Airbag Warning Lamp On (dated 10-8-1999)) that says faulty seat belt connectors can cause the airbag light to come on. The seat belt connectors are replaced with ones that have gold contacts. If your car has not had the seat belt connector corrective action then it should have it done as this is a likely cause. About a 2 hour job at the dealer - and since this is a known problem I would think most dealers would do it as a courtesy service.

The early Boxsters have the same issue. My 1997 has had two fixes over the years. Second fix a few years ago was the gold plated electrical contacts and buckles and no light since then.

My car was long out of warranty when the second fix was done for free. I was told by the local dealer that as of July it is no longer an automatic free fix if you are out of warranty, it is case-by-case. Find out if prior fixes has been done if you are not the original owner.

This is the kit. New buckles and ground wires depending on the year.

Thanks once again. Toolpants, in the event the dealer will not cover the expense for the repairs (I do have a Porsche extended warranty) and I choose to do the work myself are special tools required other than screwdrivers and wrenches.

I watched Peter at AB do it a few years ago. It is just soldering new ground wires and following the instructions. The only tool I can think of the the female torx socket to remove the seat bolts.

You should have the fault codes read to make sure the kit will fix the light. If you have something like a bad air bag control unit then the kit will not fix it.

I sent you the TSB with the full instructions...
