Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
The air bags has sensors, A code reader that can access the air bag module will be required. Anything else is just a guess. Most likely the air bag connector on the steering wheel is the issue. Especially if your a smoker. The ashes destroy the contacts.

The ignition system requires the alternator to be putting out 13.65 to 14.25 volts at all times when the engine is running.The battery can be fully charged,and will not have anything wrong with it,but,the ignition,requires more than battery voltage (12 volts) to run the engine.If the alternator is cutting out(not charging) just for a second,or for a minute,or more,then this would explain the problem you are having.It is not going to be easy to confirm my diagnoses,seeing that it only happens for a couple of seconds.If the truck has a volt meter ,or a charge gauge,you might catch it when it happens ,by looking at the gauge,it will drop pretty good.I would have the alternator checked,just the same,even though,nothing will show up most likely.I hope this was helpful,if it was ,at all,please let us know,thank you.

You very well could have a short or loose wire in the ignition switch. Sometimes the SRS circuit can be faulty setting off the air bag light. But the light is not connected to the locks. That is why I am suggesting to test the ignition switch wires with a test light or voltmeter to see if there is power.
