Can't help with your diagnostic tool information. However,
Airbag light:- Connectors under front seats should be checked, usually just disconnecting and reconnecting will resolve warning light issue.
Brake warning indicator:- Replace brake wear indicator cables X 2 on the right hand side of the car.
ABS (Antilock Braking System) warning light:- Replace warning light cables (I think there are four) one for each wheel. Right hand side front also effects the IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)) (Instrument cluster) function so this can probably be discounted.
Until these items have been replaced I see no real point in connecting a diagnostic tool. I can only say T4 (Testbook version 4.Computer Diagnostic System) is the required tool for these cars.

I'm sure someone will be along to correct any inconstancies in the information above.

BTW to anybody answering this topic. The OP is in Spain.
