Unhappy Engine Light and Traction Control

Have an 07 stock cobalt. Engine light stays on at all times, sometimes blinks when I'm driving. Traction control light comes on when you start the car. air bag light comes on around once every week. And when shifted up after being stopped at a stoplight it kicks when it shifts up onced, Changed spark plugs, all four coils, and one fuel injector. Someone said might be o2 sensor? does any one know anything about this?

It's probably more serious than i can help with but have you tried disconnecting the battery for a little while to reset the computer? Might not do anything for you. I'd give it a shot. Just make sure you're at home (or parked in front of your mechanics house) when you do it

To have all these little and different problems kinda points to a loose ground or bad connection.I know I'm repeating myself but you seem to have the same problem as these guys.
