My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The faults here sound like a possible burned out glow plug needing replaced as well as a faulty EGR valve or plugged EGR ports.Both of these will have to be checked into/tested further to locate and repair the cause here which can take some time so they are correct on what it may cost to fully diagnose and locate the faulty issues here.

The air bag issue can be a fault with a faulty air bag itself needing replaced or faulty wiring leading to the air bag that the code is set for.I have seen both cause a code like this here in the past.

Unfortunately these will have to be tested further to pinpoint and repair the causes then repaired from there.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
