The airbag computer has seen a fault in the system. Most likely a bad connection to one of the airbags or the sensors. You need to scan it with an airbag capable scanner (GM Tech2 or high line aftermarket scanner, not a code reader) and the codes set will point to the failed part. No other testing can be done since pin checking with an ohmmeter can set off an airbag.
