You may have a short or a loose connection. Check the wiring from the tongue ends of the belts. Might also be a bad tell-tale in the cluster allowing the light to stay on.

Your problem is the fit of your new weatherstripping. Leading edge of the door glass should seal against your new weatherstripping. Top edge of glass should seal againt the t-top weatherstripping. Your door glasses probably do not need to be readjusted, but your new weatherstripping probably does.

The AIM has a page for windhsield post weatherstripping, t-top weatherstripping and top adjustment. It also has instructions for repositioning the door glasses, but adjustment of the weatherstripping should solve your problems. Order the AIM.
