How did you fix these codes?

I had my computer scanned for codes today because the airbag light came on. I've attached a pic of what it said. I was able to clear the top two codes, but the bottom one just came right back on the screen. The only light that's on is the red airbag symbol, nothing else, no check engine or anything. SOOO, who's had this before? Says belt tensioner driver, and yes, I plan on asking a shop but I'd like to hear from any one who's delt with this before. Did you just go to a scrap yard and get another one? Or, do I need to buy a million dollor new part?

Thanks in advance!!

They just randomly came on? Did you recently buy the car or have it serviced?

I'm thinking a sensor has gone bad, or maybe just come loose. I wish I could help more but thats my best guess.
