Porsche Boxster Tiptronic 2000 - Airbag light stays on.

Porsche Boxster Tiptronic 2700cc, registered 2000.
Had to have driver's door window replaced so airbag in that door had to be disconnected for work to be carried out. Window replaced, airbag re-connected but airbag light stayed on ever since. Auto-electrician tested but his machine saying all ok when obviously is not as light staying on. He got me to disconnect battery for 24 hours then came back re-tested but machine still reading as no faults even though airbag light is on permanently. Any suggestions welcome. Have not tried Porsche dealer as worried what they will charge me.

When you put in airbags, you need to put new airbag sensors as well. If you leave the old sensors in, your airbags MIGHT deploy again. When you change both airbags and both sensors, the system resets itself. I have done this operation before.

SOURCE: airbag light on

unhook the battery for about ten minutes ... that should reset it tho the sensor may have been damaged (lucky it didn't go off). if your radio is of the anti-theft variety... make sure you know the code BEFORE you unhook the battery. if the light does not go off and you live in the states... stop at your local autozone.. they will scan the codes for free.

Air bag warning lights appears on the dash board every time I turn on the ignition on my 1998 Porsche Boxster


You need to have the airbag serviced as there is an error somewhere. it also means that the airbag will not deploy in an accident, so you should get this looked at by someone with experience troubleshooting airbag problems asap.

Is there a fuse to replace when your air bag light stays on, on a 2007 Porsche Boxster


Not likely a fuse. You need to have your airbag serviced by the dealer. Your airbag is not functioning properly when the light is on and may not deploy in a collision. You need to have the dealer plug in their diagnostic tools and find the fault.

Does a porsche boxster 2001 need a chip in the key?


It might be that you are not using the car for several day in which case the key has to be inserted into the drivers door to unlock as the remote function is disabled if not activated ie if the car is out of use fo more than 3 days. Also if this happens you have to put key in the ignition and turn to deactivate the alarm otherwise the alarm will sound. Hope this tip is useful to all porsche drivers with key problems...Blando

Airbag light staying on


to reset the light it needs to go on a diagnostic machine this could have been caused when the ignition switch was replaced if the steering wheel was removed if this is the case there will be a fault stored for the drivers airbag or when the seat was removed if this is the case there will be a fault stored for a pretensioner and or side airbag make sure no plugs have been left undone under the seat
