Pontiac Vibe Starter and Airbag Light

2008 Pontiac Vibe - Automatic - 253K miles - runs great  

Hi, my car had the airbag icon come.  A day or two later, my car won’t start - no click, not cranking, no noise when key is turned. Then I cleaned my battery posts. It started… then it won’t start for days  (no noise when key turned) - battery tested as fine — then randomly it starts. 

could my starting problem be related to the airbag light?  I’m taking my car in for the airbag recall repair in two days with a dealership  

SHOULD I HAVE MY AIRBAG SYSTEM SERVICED FIRST, THEN LOOK AT STARTER ISSUE? Or are they unrelated?

Unless the airbag system is draining the battery, I would say they're too unrelated issues. But any mechanic can tell you if you have a drain in your battery system from the airbag system with a simple test that takes 5 minutes
