Unfortunately you are going to need to have the system interrogated with a piece of dealer equipment to get to the bottom of this issue. It could be a wiring issue or a failure of the airbag itself. The generic codes you are pulling are not detailed enough...

visually inspecting the airbag will not reveal if it is faulty.
