Weird starting problem, airbag and engine light

Just spent a couple of months righting wrongs in my 1.6TS.

All that is left is 3 problems. One, the engine management light is coming on, secondly the air bag light and finally when I start the car, it runs like a bag of nails for about 5-10 seconds and then is absolutely fine.

Any suggestions beyond taking it in for (expensive that I can't really afford) diagnostics?

find someone local with Alfadiag or ECUscan

1. could be anything from a loose wire to emissions etc etc
2. most likely a poor connection under the seat, but need the diagnostic to clear it
3. may be variator if sounding like a diesel, or linked to problem 1.
