Codes without lights

I recently purchased a Foxwell NT530 since my innova 3100 j+ seemed to be absolutely useless with my 01s. I am also new to the car in general having only owned it for 2-3 weeks now, so i know very little of it's history.

In running a full scan of all systems I see the following codes in the scanner

Airbag System: id: 03 Description: DTC---Airbag warning supply

Alarm System: id 47, Description: DTC---Control locking synchronization
Alarm System: id 61, Description: DTC---Central locking limit position Unlock not reached
Alarm System: id 33, Description: DTC---Passenger compartment monitoring sensor
Alarm System: id 60, Description: DTC---Central locking limit position Lock not reached
Alarm System: id 42, Description: DTC---Wrong key or wrong transponder pill

What i find interesting is that there are no lights on my dashboard once the car is started (they all light up when i put the key in and turn it to run without starting). I think the foxwell can reset these but have not tried because I am a bit confused on why i do not see a light on the dash now.

Is it normal for codes to be stored without dash lights for airbag or alarm to illuminated?

alarm codes will not show any lights. Some airbag codes will light the airbag light, but the one you have doesn't since it is just a warning, not a fault/error. Not sure if the foxwell will clear those but I know the durametric can.

it let me clear the airbag one, so i did.. will see if it resurfaces. It could not clear the alarm ones however.

I think the alarm works (I can press lock on the fob, lights blink twice, unlock when i return they blink once, car locks and unlocks. I also had the alarm go off once when i closed one of the trunks) So I am guessing they are just accumulated codes over the cars 18+ year life..

Thank you!
