airbag light came on, fault listed in center console warning area.
After seats were removed to replace covers and after reinstallation of the seats the air bag light came on and now cannot be turned off. I have taken it to a shop specializing in Porsche and indications are that the problem is with connection on bottom of each seat. Both left and right are indicated problems by computer.

Seat belt light came on. Porsche technician diagnosed problem as left seat belt buckle and reset so the light was off. Three weeks later light came back on. Another Porsche technician diagnosed problem as Right side seat belt buckle. Right seat belt buckle replaced and code reset so the light was off. Advised me that the problem might be the seat belt module but time will tell.
