Pop up bars and air bag light

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A colleague of mine recently bought a rear ended 996, the work was done successfully apart from the two lights stated above. Because the pop up bars came up during the impact, the light and the airbag light wont turn off, he was told it needs to be turned off by Porsche, is this true?

Both faults must be turned off with a Porsche PST2 tester. All dealers and some independent garages have these. The rollbars can normally just be pushed down to reset them -- as long as the cars computer did not trigger them. Once the computer has triggered them the computer must be reset before they will stay down. All air bag light triggers must be reset by PST2.

Yeah I agree. If you have a rear passenger and you are going fast enough and you hit a nasty pocket in the road, these things might eject and take your passengers head off :-)

No really, if you imagine going along a strech fast enough, the back passenger(s) heads will be pushed back in accelaration. I read that they sometimes eject if you hit a whole in the road big enough. If their heads are far back enough. THwaaaack!

Saying that, who would want to be a passenger in these cars :D

Hey Don, I have this picture in my mind of your car on top of another in the back of a wagon. What's the story?
