Default Reset the air bag warning light

How do you reset the air bag warning light on a 2005 f-150?

I disconnected the wire to the air bag indicator on the center dash counsel without first disconnecting the battery cable to install an after-market stereo. Once I connected the indicator light again the air bag warning light on the dash cluster flashes then stays on solid.

Thanks,
Mike

Chances are if you keep driving to complete a drive cycle the light will go off on its own. When you disconnected it the PCM took it as a error and threw the light on so now that you reconnected it the PCM will think you fixed it.

FYI.......after 2 drive cycles the warning light did go off by itself and is back to normal.
