In late 90's GM passenger cars, the computer that controls the SIRS (Supplemental Inflatable Restraint System) is mounted underneath the passenger seat. If someone sitting in that seat causes the light to go off... you probably just have a loose connector. Always remember to pull the main airbag fuse (normally located in the engine compartment) before touching anything to do with the airbag system. Failure to do so could result in severe injury.

Do both air bags go off in a crash if no one is sitting in the passenger seat?

In most newer cars, no. Older cars may not even have an airbag for the passenger. In most cars that do however, there is a weight sensor in the passenger seat that turns the airbag on only if there is someone heavy enough in the seat. This prevents the airbag from deploying if no one is in the seat and also prevents it from going off if there is a small child in the passenger seat.
