does everything happen all at once or is it one at a time? have you had your battery tested to see if its bad?

check for corrosion on the battery, i would suggest a can of battery acid detector by kar products if you can get your hands on it. the belt to the alternator could be loose, or there could be corrosion on the connection. i have a 96 200sx, the airbag light has been on for almost 2 years now. ive heard that 10 years after the mfg. date they start to flash, why i dont know. id also check the ground to the chassis, make sure thats all cleaned up.
