Remove the light and that'll fix it.

Just kidding. I would say that you might have a loose or damaged wheel sensor. A quick ECU scan at autozone will give you the history of codes thrown.

your gauge cluster connection might be loose, the next time your airbag light comes on see if your gauges are freezing up.

OK. I'm a freaking idiot. I was thinking ABS not airbag for some reason. Checking wheel sensors isn't going to do anything for your airbag light. You might have a loose connection on one of the crash sensors. Normally there are 2 sensors. A crash sensor and a safing sensor. Where they are on the vehicle is beyond me. Good luck and let us know if you get it fixed.
