Cayman S - Thorax Airbag Resistor Wiring

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

first of all, i would like to excuse my bad english, im from germany. My name is Dominic and i drive a Cayman S. I really love this car, but i hate the seats.

 

I bought a pairs of "König" seats and im about to install them this weekend. The only problem is, no Dealer does the coding to dissable to dissable the thorax Airbags. So i need to add some resistors on the cables.

 

Can somebody tell me where i have to wire the resistors? I found this topic with the same question, but no answer: 

Thank you very much in advance!!

Any dealership with a PIWIScan disable the throax airbag. Are they saying they refuse to or that they do not know how?

You are correct in your assumption, but many dealers or equipped independents won't do it for liability reasons (you would be disabling a mandated safety system and can be held liable for injuries resulting from doing so).

Hrm, I see. Well if anyone wants to buy my PIWIS to code their car themselves that is an option.

The responsibility for what you do with your tools in your shop rests with you, so that is an option.  Shops regularly are approached about disabling all sorts of mandated systems, like TPMS, seat belts, air bags, etc.; and simply will not get involved because if someone get injured, the shop is the "deep pockets" in the liability equation.

      Several people have told me that the 996 Dual Sender Oil Pressure Switch/Sensor will directly replace the 987-1 Oil Pressure Switch. Can you please confirm this and provide the part number. I would guess it is 996-606-203-03 but, I would like to be sure.
       
      Additionally, if I am running an AIM dash, should I run the pressure lead to the switch input on the ECU and get the pressure data from the CAN bus or, just leave the switch lead attached and run the pressure lead straight to an analog I/O on the AIM dash.
       
      Thanks, Tim

      So only managed to see a black square of tape expertly placed over the Airbag light (ON all the time), only because of driving it in the sun with the top down. Been concentrating on other parts of the car.
      Any-who, that has lead to seeing that the Seatbelt light doesn't appear at all, and closely related, the horn didn't have a fuse in it at all.
       
      So this has brought up a question, the Codes reported, the electrical drawings (Bentley), ....while they say "passenger" or "driver" side, does this in fact relate to the left and right side of the car when it is the probably more common "left-hand drive"?
      Code 30 Ignition Circuit, side airbag passenger................is that actually the right side?
      This will not reset with the Durametric. I looked at the airbag connector in the left door, but now I am thinking it may actually relate to the other side of the car, i.e. LHD passenger
       
      Interestingly, the Airbag module wiring, Passenger Side Belt Lock, that wire is cut at the plug and a grafted in wire (plug connected) heads off under the dash somewhere (yet to be traced).
      So that Br/Bl wire say passenger, but maybe it relates to the right hand side of the car, in this case the drivers seat.
      BTW, the left seat, (passenger), does not have a wire at the buckle, but I think maybe the RHD ROW, or Australian RHD cars didn't have that anyway. Or has been replaced with the wrong buckle.
       
      So maybe the Airbag light was covered to avoid looking for a fault, might be a plug.
      Could it be related to the seat-belt buckle, again patched to avoid fixing it properly? The light doesn't even go with the self-test, so could be a bulb.
      I have read that the seat belt buckle may not be included in the Airbag ignition circuit for this region.
       
      Horn didn't have a fuse in it. Relay operates with the horn pad, but no horns, so maybe bad horns.
      The fuse may also have been removed if it had that bad horn pad issue and going off on its own.

      Hey everyone, i own a 2010 porsche Boxter 2.9L with the PDK transmission.. yesterday after leaving the car for a 4 days i started it and went for a drive.. when i turned it on again, i got a warning message “emergency transmission run” and the car became very jerky through gearshifts and wouldnt accelerate properly.. after turning it on and off the message went away and it drove just fine but then it kept re-appearing mid drives and becomes very jerky and clunky...ive noticed since i had the car that the gearbox was sometimes clunky or would make a noise when changing gear but the dealership said that was fine and normal since its a PDK, the car is at 59,000km so its time for a transmission fluid change... could this be a low voltage problem, or transmission fluid? The reverse gear works just fine.. has this happened to any other owners?
