VDC off light staying on**SOLVED**

I installed Sat radio today, as well as a Valentine One radar detector, and did the Nav hack while I had it all apart.
My only problem is "VDC off" light stays lit when the engine is running.
Pushing the switch does nothing.
I did not touch that plug, I did however, tap into the power wire on the seat heater switch, which is right next to it.
The battery was disconnected while I did all the work.
Any clue what I should be looking for?

UPDATE

I read the service manual, and once the battery has been disconnected, the VDC OFF light will remain lit until the vehicle has been driven in a straight line for at least 30 seconds.

Thanks!

I'm looking at buying an 06 PF, so what does "VDC" stand for?

VDC= Vehicle Dynamic Control.

A very neat safety system that senses changes to the vehicles intended path.
It will apply brakes and cut power as needed to counteract oversteer or understeer.
I play with it all the time in my G35 coupe in the snow, gas it around a corner, and as the rear end starts to slide, you feel one of the front brakes and the opposite rear brake engage to put you back in a straight line.

Thanks for the explanation... that's interesting. Guess no one can do donuts in the snow, huh. I was surprised when a colleague of mine mentioned Mazda has a rain sensor. The wipers adjusts as more or less rain falls.
