The airbag light is probably due to dirty or worn seat belt receptacles. Most potential first-time Porsche buyers won't know this is a $100 fix and will shy away from purchasing your car or even looking at it when they see that warning light.

You should fix this problem to help sell your car for as much as you can get for it.

Try spraying computer contact cleaner into the receptacles with the negative battery terminal disconnected... let them dry out real good and then have the airbag warning light turned off at a dealership.

If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace the seat belt receptacles themselves. Stealerships will charge you a fortune to do it because the book rate is at least an hour a seat to pull them (four simple bolts) and then they'll double or triple the actual cost of the seatbelt receptacle compared to you buying them from Sunset in Oregon and installing them yourself.

I've done this on my car and it is very easy and doesn't take long at all. Plus, you get to clean the carpet under your seats!

Best of luck selling your boxster as we go into winter. Convertibles usually sell much faster and for more money in the spring.
