Re: electrical problems in subaru - can't get my brand...
The airbag should be fine aslong as the light is not on. the airbag wires are wrapt in yellow plastic. check all fuses with test light cos the wires for those accesory arn't near the radio at all. there are two power wires for the radio CONSTANT and ACCESORY if you have the two around the wrong way it could cause this problem.

Sounds like someone may have crosswired something.
I know a guy who installed his own stereo system in his pickup and it worked, but only when the headlights were on. He had wired the power wire into his headlight wiring.
I would look for a similar problem.
First you must cut the Dimmer wire from your stereo installation.Second, replace the 5amp or maybe the 7amp fuse that blew at the fuse panel near the LEFT foot rest.If you are certain that all the fuses check fine, then go to your MAZDA dealer and purchase a new thumbwheel dimmer control,because the rheostat has burned in your present one.Do not reconnect the dimmer control wire 2 your stereo wiring,because U don't need to.
Look for a second power wire that needs to be hooked up. There is one wire that is switched (runs from the ignition) and another that is direct from the battery. You can test for this with a light or a meter. Typically the always hot wire will include an in-line fuse to prevent fires in the event of a short... Hope this helps...;-)
