I'd try a spark tester just to see if you're getting consistent spark B4 delving deeper into the misfire....

On your airbag, I take it that the drivers airbag had blown then you replaced it and the module too? If you did blow the drivers airbag you will have to replace the drivers seatbelt too to get the code to go away.

My '04 SVTF has issues with the ABS and traction control dash lights, too. They come on intermittently, but always at the same time. I've checked the connections by the strut and looked for physical damage, but nothing looks amiss. Is there a weak point in the system that commonly fails?

whats in the seatbelt? driver seatbelt is loose on the bolt, kinda looks like somethings missing. there is a tube on the passenger side that looks like a pretentioner, but nothing on the driver seat. someone posted in another thread that the driver side pretentioner is in the spool inside the door column

[QUOTE]ABS/traction lights on. new wheel sensors and wheel bearings. I heard the bearings are used as a reluctor ring on these cars, but it looks to me like it read the axle ring.[/QUOTE

pickup for the abs is on the bearing not the axle, had a wheel bearing done last year, garage pressed the bearing in backwards, put the car back together....abs light!
