With a leaking heater core, or a leaking heater hose, you would have a loss of coolant to go with it. I do not believe you have any heater hoses that enter the passenger compartment. In either case, you would have the loss of coolant, and a sweet smell, along with a greasy film from the steam on the windows. As far as the airbag light sharing some relation, if water has infiltrated the airbag control module(SDM or DERM), that would be about the only circumstance. I am not sure where in your vehicle the airbag module resides, but below the drivers seat, or on the center hump, is a common locale.
