  1. Francois Please call me: 0409 02 77 84
  2. WB Can you please call me: 0409 02 77 84 Smokey
  3. Francois I would welcome the opportunity to talk about the capability of your PIWIS scanner. Could you please respond to: mailformil@gmail.com Thanks, Smokey
  4. dan, It is an Autoland scanner.
  5. Thanks Coastr, I have found that thread but still no detailed info about clearing the codes. Thanks WB. Please try: mailformil@gmail.com WB you say -- " the air bag control module is located under the PCM / A/C controls" -- so I will go looking!
  6. So the sensors up front, in the nose of the mudguard, send a message to that module? Can that module be re-set?
  7. The original bag had deployed probably because the sensor wire was severed by a torn mudguard in a 'soft' accident. The replacement bag has not deployed, it is from another car being wrecked. The codes are: 803C - Drivers thorax bag (below lower limit) This is the bag that had fired off. And, 800B - Drivers Head bag (steering wheel) (above upper limit) which has not fired off! Thorax (Porsche term) bag is at right shoulder, in seat back, to provide head side trauma. My dilemma is to explain how the Drivers head bag has shown a fault - nothing has happened to it! And the one that did fire off has been replaced. ANF that's an interesting question! What is a 'control module' and and where is it? What's it look like? How do I get at it? And I meant to PREVENT, not -- ( to provide head side trauma. )
  8. Thanks Coastr, Cleared the code and it re-appeared as soon as motor started!
  9. Boxster 987 Data scan shows air-bag faults. Have replaced the offending air-bag but cannot clear the dash warning light. Is there something else between the sensors and the air-bags that I need to look at?
  10. I found second-hand belts - hope they do the job! Smokey.
  11. Thanks WB, I fired off an enquiry. Smokey
  12. Thanks JA I am open to any suggestions. Could you please ask your mate to contact me: mailformil@gmail.com Cheers, Smokey. Not available from them! Thanks.
  13. I have to replace both Boxster 987 seat belts -- an eye watering $ exercise! Any suggestions? I'm near Melbourne.
  14. Dan, Did you find Dave J? Could we have a contact please!
