Any Calgary Folks With Durametric or Ability to Clear Codes?

Recommended Posts

I just moved my 996 from Texas to Calgary. On the drive up, I was doing up my seat belt while leaving a gas station, and the push button clicked to a different depth, and when I started the car, I noticed the airbag light came on. The seat belt receptical seems to be fine now.


I only have an OBD reader, and can't get into the airbag system. I'd love to clear the airbag light. Hopefully it was a temporary fault that will stay cleared now that the seat belt button is popping up; or if the light comes on, then at least I will know I have to replace the seat belt receptical for sure.


Anybody in Calgary have a Durametric or similar device that can clear airbag lights as a favour; or know of an indy Porsche mechanic that can do it for a reasonable fee? 


Also, will an airbag light affect an out of province inspection? Or do they just check tires, brakes, quick look underneath and then an ODB scan?


Thanks in advance.

This device is supposed to clear airbag codes in the 996 (shows it in a YouTube video) as well: http://www.diagnostic-world.com/pages/Autel_Maxidiag_Elite_MD702_DS_Engine_Airbag_Transmission_ABS_Oil_Service_Reset_Diagnostic_Kit_1998_2014_189383-z=564795&p=67420.cfm


But for the price, I'd probably just get a Durametric system (because it can do more on a Porsche, although this one is handy for other makes and doesn't need a computer to run), but I can't justify buying an expensive tool at the present time.
