I am wondering how you got the airbag light to clear? Are you still using these seats and is the light still dormant? I just completed the same install (with 2015 TH seats) and had the same problem with airbag light. Since my cherokee is a latitude the driver seat wiring harness was plug and play. It wasn't until a tech at Jeep after attempting to clear the code at my local shop noticed the passenger seat airbag was not being recognized. After looking at the passenger harness I realized they are vastly different. After installing the original seat in again while keeping TH seat in driver the light went away.

Update: Decided to swap the two wiring harnesses the other day and try it again. Unfortunately the passenger seat is still creating the airbag warning. I really inspected everything and found the only difference to be in the sensor that connects directlyt to the airbag. My 2017 cloth seat has two wires and the 2015 TH seat has 4. One of the additional wires is colored and the other is a ground. I wonder what these extra wires do? Anyone have any ideas? I am tempted to ground the ground and try again but I am afraid of blowing my face off with an air bag going off. ha. Anyone have the wiring diagrams and can send me the diagram for 2015 TH and 2017 Latitude passenger seat, it would be much appreciated.
