Just replaced a blown parking light fuse, now airbag light stays on?

A few days ago while driving at night I hit the left turn signal & i got the rapid flashing instead of the normal blink blink. I assumed I had a bad bulb, which it ended up being the driver side rear. I had some LED bulbs that I bought a while back & never used, so I decided to try them out. I installed 1 of the LED bulbs in place of the bad bulb. It came on, but was very dim & slightly flickering so I removed it & installed a regular 3157 bulb. The blinker worked, the light worked when the brake pedal was pressed, but did not work in the running light or constant on mode. After doing some google fu, I found 1 of the 10A fuses under the hood was blown . I replaced the blown fuse & the tail light is functioning properly. Now the airbag light stays on & was not doing this before I changed the fuse. Where do I start to fix this problem?

Ok. Problem solved. The "SPARE" fuse I used to replace the blown parking light fuse, turns out it is only a spare fuse in dodge vehicles. In the jeep it was actually a fuse for the passenger airbag. The fuse labeling on the underside of the lid is deceiving. I put a fuse back in place of the 1 I removed & it's all good now

Lol. It's definitely misleading if you don't read the fine print. The *s mean dodge only or vice versa, jeep only, can't remember which it was. All I saw was the slot labeled "SPARE", & pulled 1. All is good now that I have replaced the AIRBAG fuse. Glad it wasn't anything serious. My WK has 98k miles on it now & it seems like over the past 2 months all kind of stuff has been crapping out
