I just bought the car listed above and the side curtain airbags were deployed. I tried to remove it and cut the red wire connecting the airbag to the car. The car now cranks but doesn’t start. It drove perfectly fine before I removed the airbag. What do I do?

Many of the modern cars will not run if the bags are disconnected, They will run but have codes if they were deployed. However looking at the wiring diagram I don't see any red wires going to the side curtain units or even as part of the air bag system. Red is normally used as a power feed color on Lincoln's. Does it have any other color or is it only red?
What other wires were around it? Could you take a picture and load it here so we can see the wiring.
