You need to access the Airbag ECU (Electronic Control Module) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car in order to erase all faults - DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored, unlock and reset the Airbag ECU. Then the Airbag light will turn OFF after approx. 4 seconds, ignition ON. Good Luck!
Have a look at the ignition module. Cars of that vintage had a pretty basic electronic ignition system with an exterior module that worked in conjunction with the distributor. The ignition contacts on the key switch could be a problem and also the distribution of the spark plug leads. The firing order is 1 3 4 2 . Also check that you are firing on # 1 TDC compression and not # 4.
I had simerlar problem with opel vectra which machanic said was fuel pump so replaced it and didnt work. Any how it turned out to be water in the fuel (it doesnt need to much) so i put 2 litres of methelated spirits and running good ever since. Hope this helps.
Pay $20 and have a mechanic go take a look at the car- if you have a good mechanic, they will gladly go (for compensation of course) and give you an estimate based on a looksee and the comments of the dealer.
Than you can access the total price and value to determine if it suits you.
Besides cash, you can also tell the mechanic that you'll use him exclusively for service in the future.
