Can't help with air bag light but if you do a search on "air bag" on this forum on Google you'll find plenty of informatin.

As far as bleeding, YES, you need to bleed the system almost everytime you deal with it.

I believe that refers the accelerometer in the b-pillar, as I think the main accelerometer is built into the controller. Do you have side airbags?

The bleeder is located on the thermostat housing - I think there is a tech article on this site that shows the location visually.

Edit: Or maybe it's in that previous post

The front right satellite accelerator sensor is behind the lower grille on the radiator support. It's attached with 2 screws. Unless your car is a right hand drive, it will be on the passenger side, not the driver side.

i believe it is in the B-Pillar as well.

Also bleed the system while the car is running. if you try to burp a PT it wont work and she'll overheat.

The bleeder is right below the housing under the radiator cap, may have a little rubber nub covering it but its a generic brake bleeder screw with a 3/8 head :-)

Kind of a pain to reach, a wrench wont get it due to the angle but a 1/2 socket drive will :-)

The acceleration sensors are the impact sensors. There are two at the base of the radiator support (one left and one right), and there's one at the base of each B-pillar, if there's side airbags.

Front right sensor refers to the one at the base of the radiator support, not the one in the B-pillar.

don't forget to disconnect the battery and step on the brake before you mess with it!
