Battery light could be alternator not charging / faulty .You need to get it checked out with a meter .Airbag light could be sensors or wiring under seat .

Suggested Solution

You need to load test battery to see if it has any weak or dud cells .If so it wont hold a charge and will drain overnight .Putting a meter across the battery wont tell you that .The likes of Halfords or a good accessory shop will test the battery while you wait , usually foc .If everything o.k check for a parasitic drain on electrics .The fact it starts o.k with a jump start more or less suggests / verifies the battery or the alternator is failing to maintain the battery .
