Air Bag warning light

Hi all,

Hoping someone would know more about this but I just got my rear window replaced as well as the driver side seat reupholstered. When I picked it up from the automotive fabric shop, the air bag warning light was on. The friendly Russian man told me about the light but he has no idea why it turned on nor how to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

This light is illuminated because your upholstry shop removed the seat without disconnecting the battery first. If you unplug the wires that go from the seat's seatbelt receptacle with the battery hooked up, you'll get this dummy light on the dash.

A Porsche dealership's computer (PST II Tool) can remove it quickly. That's the only way I know how to get rid of that light.

What was the damage on the rear window repair?

$350 for a new plastic window. I was contemplating about a brand new glass top but opted for the plastic instead. I'll keep it clean and soft from now and never ever put the top down when it's 65F and below. I'll post pics of the new window and interior this weekend.
