Default Airbag light on after install(s)...

Soo today I installed HID lows, fogs, and new head unit. Everything went together pretty smoothly, which was nice. But after I get the CD player hooked up, I take a test drive to check out the new lights, and my lights flicker, CD player shuts off then comes back on, then airbag light comes on. I pull over and turn the truck off for a second to see if it'll clear and it doesn't. I bought a harness for my HIDs but didn't use them, could this be the reason why? The shop I got them from said the newer rams need them, but not all(mines an 06). Also I blew a fuse when I was hooking up the stereo :/ but I replaced it. I haven't yet tried to reset the battery, or install the harness. That will be tomorrow. I've read on here that people have similar problems when pulling the center console out? Sounds pretty odd. Any input is welcome! Thanks!

The harness is a relay harness, thought maybe the lights are sucking up too much juice and causing a weird problem? Also I had to tap into the cig lighter for much player for adequate power.

Added harness today, seemed to fix the flickering lights/radio power cycling. Unhooked battery, unplugged connector under the pass seat and light still comes on.... Any ideas?

The first thing you need to do is get the airbag codes.
