Default Having some electrical difficulties. Need Troubleshooting

Ok I was messing with the fuses under the seat, and after I put everything back, now my Check Engine light, and Air Bag is not illuminating. The DIC says "Service Airbag", but the "SELECT" and "RESET" butttons are not working. Also the compass doesn't work. What did I do, is there a fuse that control all of these or are they all unrelated.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. I was putting in a after martket radio also, so maybe I did knock out a connector either under the seat or dash. Anyone know what connector it could of been.

Look on page 66 of section 6 for the fuse layout under the rear seat:

I've been look at the fuses, but I didn't see any fuse related to the problems I'm having. Oh forgot to add a wire did spark when I was hooking my aftermarket radio up, so maybe a fuse or 2 did blow. There'* gotta be fuses that control all of these.

Check every fuse. If you don't find the problem. start switching relays around.

Sparks result in blown fuses.
