Hi, this might be because of a voltage drop on the cables or the battery needing replacement. The colder the weather the more current your starter will braw. You can check for a voltage accross the bateery by connecting a volt meter to the battery and crank it if the voltage drop below 9.6V your battery might need replacement, if not you will need to see what the voltage drop is on the solenoid. You should have battery power on the terminal that activates the solenoid in order to get the solenoid to energise. If you do not have battery voltage on that terminal I suggest putting a relay between the ignition switch and the starter or replacing the wiring harness between the 2. Also check the connection on the ignition switch itself as you can get a bad connection there to.

Check the brake light switch on the brake pedal. It may need adjusting to allow brake lights to go off. The plunger on the switch needs to open when pedal is depressed, and close when pedal is released and in its normal position.

I would think the engine would crank and start with the airbag deployed.
I would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
You might have to get a shop manual to trace the starter circuits.
