I had an electrical short in the wiring harness from the relay box to the brake switch; The air bag light was affected. A couple of the wires that burned, made contact with the wire going into the dashboard display and the light for airbag was turned on by the burning wires toching it. I replaced the burnt wires and now the the light stays on. Do I need to go back to the dealer to reset the computer because the falt is in the memory? The cause of the problem was the rear brake light wire in the harness shorting. I'm the third owner and I guess someone someone in the past years, put a cheap fuse that melted it's plastic casing like Shrink Wrap, making the two prongs come together and keeping a constant closed circuit. If you know DC current, it gets hot, fire very fast.
air bag light on 2000 Porsche Boxster
by boxter in East Setauket, NY on May 21, 2010
the air bag light stays on all the time . we had a o/s window regulator fitted after fitting an elecrician teste...
I just like to know if a code from air bag can be eraze by disconnecting the module,I trigger the light while replced the w/regulator,by mistake I turn the switch on with the bag unpluged
If the airbag warning light illuminates, it must be attended to quickly. Seat belt buckles, wiring updates/repairs, and/or airbag module faults may be the cause.
