Anyone with a durametric in South SF BayArea?

I have an airbag code that I believe is due to faulty seat belt buckles. I'd love to get the code read before I start throwing parts at it and then have it not clear afterwards. I know I need to have it cleared with a durametric or PIWIS also. Just hoping I could meet someone reasonably close by that might be interested in a case of beer or something in exchange for a few minutes of their time.

A Durametric can clear airbag codes, can't it? But can it fix what caused it? Probably not. I trust you are aware of the TSB relating to grounding, seat buckles and the airbag light.

I am aware which is why I want to know what the code is first. I just bought the car and he light was already on. Unfortunately, I donít have any history related to the buckles. Of course, I could swap them and then try to clear the code, but Iíd rather have an idea if itís coming from that said or something else. Iím not familiar with Durametric or Porsche diagnostic software so itís certainly possible Iím approaching this from the wrong direction.

I have an Autel which clears codes. I installed a Momo steering wheel and cleared the airbag code just fine. I live in Alviso and work in Sunnyvale. Are you free during the day? I can meet you on my lunch break sometime next week. This weekend I am not available. Shoot me a PM if you don't find anyone.
