check engine lights

Been a while since I posted here but i have a question for you guys. I have some weird codes popping up. I have the smart alternator code and recently I had my airbag code pop. I can clear out the alternator code, with the Diablo tuner, but the air bag one I can not. I also still have the O2 sensor codes popping but I don't think they are causing any problems.
To add to the problem I'm deployed in Iraq again which makes trouble shooting a little hard. Thanks for any help you guys can give me....Jason.

Not too much going on on this site as you can probably see. Not too much here lately other than 'bots and trolls. I've never had those codes come up so I don't have an answer for you but you'd get more responses on the more active sites like http://www.gtoforum.com/, http://www.ls2.com/forums/index.php, or http://www.ls1gto.com/.

you might want to check for a short in the system before you by an alternator. if it is the alt, go aftermarket gm's are expensive. good luck in irac. we're all behind you.

I cannot comment on the other codes, but the O2 code will not cause an issue. Once back with your goat, are you able to use your Predator to turn off the rear O2 sensors? I had this done after I had my headers installed. I found the CEL to be an annoyance.
