Air Bag Idiot Light

So I installed a new stereo last night and everything seemed fine. When I got in the truck this morning the Supplemental Airbag warning light started flashing and hasn't stoped. When I got into work I checked to make sure I didn't have any loose connections, but everything seems OK.

Any ideas? Any way to clear the code to see if maybe it was from a loose connection? Should I remove the stereo before I bring it into Nissan? I've had the truck for exactley 1 week and I'm not in a good mood right now. Thanks for any help...

The starter of this thread (Freefly) said the light came after he installed a new stereo... I'm pretty sure that he disconnected the passenger seat airbag light (in the part of the dash that he removed) and tried his new stereo with the dash not re-installed... The airbag computer sees the missing light and signals it as a fault.

To avoid this problem (and work on the stereo with the center part of the dash removed) you should let the light plugged but unscrew it from the rear to free the dash panel.
