Airbag Control Unit Installation

Recommended Posts

After 2 to 3 recurrences of airbag light coming on.after performing TSB6924 wiring  changes.after changing both belt buckles with latest and greatest ending in 09 and 10 part numbers.The TSB is stating I should change my airbag control unit to the latest 996.618.219.02 .What I need to know is this a plug and play control unit install.I do have the Durametric version 6 which I know is not going to help.Is this module in a need to be programmed?

Note that the TSB6924 may not be the latest technique for fixing the grounding problem. I had the same issues you had and had both buckles and TSB6924 applied and still had the warning light. I took it back to the dealer and they fixed it using some verbal fix (but not any parts that were documented) from the Porsche regional tech. Unfortunately that was probably 11 years ago and I have no records or memory beyond a note that this was their approach and it did fix the problem for the next 6 years.

i received the latest TSb  from Porsche dated  2004 with 12 pages.This picture I am showing below resembles what mine look like except that mine is soldered.I have a 97 Boxster that's never been to the dealer.I also have two pins that have the retrofit of gold contacts soldered and shrink-wrap.what I did different this time was all brown wires (ground) each individually go to GP6 and GP7.I am using the latest buckles ending in 09 & 10.Wish me luck
