The most common cause for Airbag lights on these cars is dirty electrical connectors under the seats. However, if you have ABS, ASC, and Airbag lights on, you have far more problems.

I just fixed mine. I bought a cheap $30 SRS tool and plugged it into my Engine sensor. It read codes 3, 4, 18, 19. These indicated the seatbelt tensioner and buckle switches. I pulled the seats, and sprayed all contacts with contact cleaner and lubricant. When I checked the codes again, they were all clear and was able to reset and turn off the light. I did however order and replace the seatbelt receptacles just to make sure.

Hope this helps...
