Passenger side Airbag fault


Recommended Posts

Hi to all of Renntech,

I open this topic because I think that someone would help me to solve the problem.

Car: Cayenne S model 2005

Last week, I got the light of Airbag on. The only thing that I can say that I moved the passenger seat. I connected Durametric cable and I get this message P1218 (passenger side airbag). I tryed to reset but, it is still present, so I think that maybe the connector under the seat. Can anyone give me more information to solve the problem. I red somewere that I have to check this connection.

Let me know something.

Best regards

Pietro

You need to have a proper look under the seat. Sometimes the wiring harness isn't secured correctly and gets damaged when the seat is adjusted. Open each connection and clean with a quality electrical contact cleaner- just follow the instructions on the can and be sure it's safe for plastics. Be sure the ignition key is removed before performing any work.

Technical Service Bulletins are not recalls. They are released to address common known issues and provide the techs with a repair to solve problems areas. If the vehicle is off warranty you'll have to pay for the repair.

As you have just purchased the vehicle, call the seller and ask if he is willing to help in the repair.

HI! I Alex from Porsche Israel. What do you need to do. Under the seat you can see yellow connector ( airbag system). But to get it you need disassemble the seat ( that means open four bolts and put on it on the backrest) . After that you must to cut connector (mother and father) and after that to weld them. Remember to isolate good the wires!!! It is important. After this procedure make hard reset and be happy!

Don't worry spadaco, the fault will come back after a while, gagama got it right. There are 2 or 3 yellow connectors on each seat to cut out and re solder the wiring.
