Airbag light could be simply the seat sensor connector has come loose. Mine used to do that when my wife would use my car, and when I put the seat back to my position it would light up. I made sure the connector was nice and snug and not getting tugged by the seat when it moved and it hasnt lit up since.

Only way to find out what the lights are for is to have them checked at your local repair shop. Anyone with a code scanner can tell you what they are. The codes will keep coming up until you fix the problem that is causing them, so just getting them reset will not guarantee they will not come on again.

Go check them out and let us know what they are...
