Your 98 doesn't have seat belt pretensioners so there is no code associated with any of the wiring under the seats.
Here's what you need to do:
Key up the ignition and watch the airbag light immediately afterward. It will flash out a pattern that will give you a 2-digit code like 1-9-1-9- or 2-7-2-7- or something like that. The flash pattern repeats maybe 5 times before going solid. Count the flashes to get the code, then post it and we can help diagnose the cause.
