I would look very closely at the connectors and the shorting bar in the air bag assembly. The fact you get a code for an open circuit with the air bag unplugged proves the wiring is good. Finding 0 ohms between the two wires is correct when it is unplugged from the computer. That's because there's a shorting bar in that connector too. That way static electricity from your feet on the carpet won't pop the air bag if that connector is left unplugged.
There isn't anything inside the rocket fuel canister that can be shorted so that just leaves the shorting bar. The only other thing I can think of would be if there are different resistors in different model air bags, and you have the wrong air bag for your car. Even though they might bolt on and fit, there might be a difference between model years or car models.
