Child Seat Detection / Air Bag Light & Durametric


Recommended Posts

Bought a child seat air bag disengage bar and specifically bought a durametric to clear the fault codes.

Note this is a fully rebuilt Boxster -- and in the process I installed the child seat bar

When I fired it up -- the Airbag light was on

Durametric will say I have Airbag fault codes -- including the child seat code.

I cleared all the codes -- but Airbag light did not go off --- checked codes again -- Child seat detected.

It allows me to reset that code and the all show cleared -- but then when I ask Durametric to check codes again -- it flags that Child Seat (only)

Thoughts --

Should I pull the child seat bar (PITA but can be done) -- and see where my baseline is?

Or am I missing something -- and the durametric can't really reset the child seat code?

thanks,

M

The child seat bar should be logged out by a PIWIS tester.

I was afraid of that ---

Looks like I will have to pull the bar (or at least disconnect it so that I can get through inspections .....

"Sorry officer -- I don't have any plates or registration because my air bag light won't go out" -- probably won't cut it :-)

Nothing like replying to your own posts --

But I simply unconnected the child seat bar -- and the airbag light went out -- so

looks like I'm good until I can find someone local to enable the child seat via computer.
