2000 VW Passat V6

Hi I need some help plz. I brought in my car to the VW dealer because it had died while it was being drove and the check engine light came on. The dealer told me that it was the crank position sensor that needed to be replaced. I will so that myself. There was also another problem where the coil pack would short when it got wet and the car wouldn't start. I will replace the coil pack myself, but the dealer didn't tell me which one was bad. They did give me a print out with the codes and I was wondering if someone could help me out and tell me what the codes mean so I can order the correct parts and replace them in the car.

I had another thing I wanted to ask: i have the airbag light on. The dealer figured out what was wrong with the car when it died and wouldn't start and they charged me $105 for that diagnosis. I asked them why didn't they also look and see why the air bag light was on and they told me that it was a separate module and they would need to charge me more money to figure out why the light is on. I said no. I thought that if you connect the car to their computer by the OBD connector, that you could see everything that was going on with the car. I am not sure if they had to connect it to a separate system or if they just wanted more money to click another button. Any thoughts?

Here are the codes that I was given on the print out from the dealer:

Change the crank sensor first. The misfires could be caused by the faulty crank sensor.

V6 passats don't have individual coils. There is one coil pack top center of the motor where all the plug wires connect.
