the inflatable restraint is the Airbag....

the inflator in the trunk is to pump up Tires or the like....with the correct hose

A bad airbag, improperly installed bag after an accident, corrosion on the main module connector, etc.

Be VERY carefull troubleshooting or mucking with this system.

Run a carfax. Any accidents in the car'* history?

Before you check into a new airbag, check your fusebox and make sure that the SIR fuse is in properly. If the fuse is either pulled out or loose, it will cause that warning light.

In reference to your other topic that I locked, the SRS system doesn't use the PCM. The inflatable restraint light doesn't come from your PCM.

the reason I asked about the computer is the car is running a little ruff, and the guy I got it from said he had the codes checked and the was something about the computer, but he didn't know what, I called autozone and asked if i removed it, could they check it, they said they couldn't, So I quess I have to take the whole car up ?

Yes, drive the car up there and have the codes scanned. Don't buy anything just post what comes up here and we'll help you from there.
