Newbie with a troublesome clio

  renault clio 1.2 16v
Hi Guys, im new to the forum and having mega problems with my clio which i have had around 6 weeks.

The enine management light on the right had side of dashboard recently appeared it flashes when driving and the car feels like its losing power (limp mode). Some days foot to the floor it will only just hit 30mph ive noticed it starts coming on when at traffic lights or stuck in traffic. The car has done just 45,000 which is relatively good for the age of the car.

I have recently had a full service and changed the HT leads and*Coil
Pack but still no change.

I have taken the car to the local garage who done a diagnostic test for me the codes which came up are as follows:*

DF112 - misfire on cylinder 2 risk of destoying the cat.

DF112- cylinder 2 non compliance with pollution standards (car passed its emissions test last week on MOT)

11G - computer locked active on request

6G - drivers side airbag resistance short circuit

7G - passengers air bag circuit resistance short circuit

Would be greatful of any help or advice as i would love to get these issues sorted son i can enjoy the car!Currently in ladieV's garage:

Cant help with the engine but the airbag codes are the common fault with the block connectors under the seats, have a search on here you should find plenty on it

Common fault is the coil packs but you say you've had these changed? These are the individual 'pencil coils' right?
