Can u clear my Airbag Light? North Bay, CA

Recommended Posts

the airbag warning light is on in my 2000 Boxster. there are no fault codes present. i had removed the steering wheel to switch out the turn signal / wipers control unit and shoulda read through the procedure from start to finish before doing so...because i could have avoided this issue:(

is there anybody in the north bay area who has the diag tool for clearing this up and would be willing to do so? i am in sonoma county and i am pretty flexible time-wise, feel free to email me at my forum user name at hotmail. or text me at 7o7 48o nyne for 1 one.

fyi: i checked the post for people who have the diagnostic tools....closest i found was san jose and roseville. i rarely get to those places unless travelling somewhere with the family.

thank you!

What are you using to test for codes?

A generic tester will not likely work for airbag codes - you will need Durametric, a Porsche PST2, or Porsche PIWIS tester.

Also, if the fault is not corrected then the light will just come back on. So it is best to know why the light is on and verify that the problem is fixed.

I know it's a hard pill to swallow, sinking $287 into a Durametric, but it's well worth the cost. Whether you find someone to clear your airbag light or not, definitely consider getting a Durametric.

thank you for the replies. but i am pretty certain that the light is staying on because the battery was not disconnected when it shoulda been. only tool i have to check codes is the obd....so yes, there may be fault code(s) present. thank you.
