I put in a porsche airbag deactivation kit on my 2009 C2S cab (thanks to the help of loren and others on this site It all went smoothly). However, I am curious if the airbag light on the center console is suppose to act independently of the switch. The light "passenger airbag off" does not stay on when the switch is in the "off" position. It does react to pressure and light pressure (i.e. when a child is in the car). Just curios if I did in fact hook up correctly. thanks Chris.

I had the dealer install one of these for me as a condition of sale. The light, "Passenger Airbag Off", is only illuminated when someone is sitting in the seat.

Chris, did you DIY this?  Im curious to learn more.  Also, what do the dealers charge for part and labor?  And can you use any seat or must be Porsche seat? 

 

Thx

Hi Pete03S,

 

Did you realize you activated a 3 year old thread?

 

The system is designed to deactivate the front air bag on the passenger side.  It consists of a bar attached in front of the seat and between the seat rails on the passengers side.  Longer bolts replace the original bolts to be able to hold the seat and bar to the chassis. The bar has a female receptacle buckle with an electrical harness attached.  There is a receptacle under the passenger seat to plug this harness into. A Porsche System Tester 2 ( PST2), usually a Porsche Dealer will need to activate the system.

 

A Porsche child seat has a male portion that when inserted into the middle front buckle deactivates the passenger airbag. Any approved child restraint seat will work, but only a buckle in that front receptacle deactivates the airbag.  Some get their own buckle from a salvage yard and then just insert it into the front receptacle so they can use their own non-Porsche child seats.

 

Child restraint activation bar with buckle receptacle and electrical harness.
