Check control unit for water ingress and clean if needed or replace if all wiring/sensors are in order.

Check grounds for adequate ability to carry current.

no accidents no air bags replaced its a florida car has some rust under the dash looks like from salt in the air

I have checked all the wiring under the seats and behind the 2 front air bags all looks good

i swap the sensors from under the front seats and still have the same codes
thanks

Please observe RTFB for WD and observe JPPSG guide.
With sporadic codes such as this, I strongly reiterate..... I would seriously inspect the controller internally with a good visual inspection.
