The airbag or SRS light means there is a problem with the airbag system and should be looked at by a garage. As for the engine light you can pull the generic codes for the engine light and it will give you an idea of the problem.

How to reset the check engine light and the abs light and the airbag light

Probably the 3 are independent of each other:
the check engine would come if there is an issue with the system control in the engine.
The ABS is related to the breaking system, either a sensor malfunction,dirt acummulation or a broken fuse.
Same thing with the SRS/Airbag especially if the car it's been in a middle to big accident, so looks like you need to have the car scan.

Will my 2001 VW Beetle pass inspection if the airbag light is on and the check engine light is on? I live in Texas and dont know if it will pass.

if the check engine light is on it will not pass, the airbag light will not make you fail but if the engine light is on it will not pass an emissions test.

2003 nissan altima airbag blinking. Engine is running rough. Plus check engine soon light is illiminated.

On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident. Most systems can only be diagnosed using a scanner designed for the airbag system, however some use flash codes to indicate the problem. The scanners at Auto Zone or the ones that sell for @ $50 will not access the airbag system, only the engine systems (check engine light).
This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting some systems without a scanner. Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate that (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.

A light that looks like an engine is on in the top left side and a passanger with an airbag and seatbelt on on the right. v6 engine

The check engine light will always be on till the engine starts if it is still on while it is running then you need to have it checked out. They will pull codes and define the reason for the light.
If the check engine light is blinking STOP driving the vehicle.
Try buckling the passenger seat belt and see if it goes out.
Further diagnostic would be nessessary regarding the airbag light unless you have a shutoff capability for the passenger front seat and determine if the light is in regards to the airbag being in the on or off position.
Good luck, hope this helps

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated

Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.

Check engine light an airbag light went on. what is causing this

Check engine light is on because you have a sensor telling the computer that something's wrong with your engine. Go to AutoZone or another parts store - most of them will code scan your car for free (a dealer will get up to an hour's labor for it). Post the codes here when you have them, and I'll help you figure out what's wrong. As for the airbag light, see if they'll scan your car for chassis and airbag faults as well. If you have side airbags in the seats, like I do in my Audi, chances are you moved the seat too far and pulled on one of the connectors. They're not designed very well, and moving the seat too far will strain them a bit, open them just a hair, and trip the fault light. I zip-tied mine tightly to hold them, and then turned the airbag light off. That (and clearing the check engine light) have to be done using a code scanner - you can't clear them by disconnecting the battery most of the time.
