Only one way diagnostics for the air bag & brake light, but the brake light will be due to a sensor, so either your brakes are low or you have a broken sensor.

Welcome to the Werkz........

Airbag can only be checked & cleared with a scanning tool.....it can be a false code, if the steering wheel or front seats were removed for any reason with the battery connected.......I bought the tool & its paid for itself after I needed it for my car, my brother's car & a friends car....

SRS (Airbag) Scan and Reset tool

Brake warning.....can be as simple as a bad bulb, some times the warning will flash even though the brake lights all seem to work......

click on thread link.....& scroll to post #4 to see my info on this issue....

johnny,

p.s. not sure if you meant your brake light circuit failure warning is flashing or your brake wear sensor light has come on, your brake wear sensor light is located on your instrument cluster below your speedo & tach.....if this light is on, follow marti5's advice with checking the brake pads & 2 wear sensors 1 front & 1rear....
