Re: dash lights not truning on
It sounds like, maybe during the stereo installation, that a fuse was blown. It is a common problem. Check your fuse that runs to your instrument panel. If this is blown, replace it with fuse w/ same voltage. Hope this was helpful... Please take a second to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!

I have right now the same problem. I just pulled the fancy/shmancy radio head out of my (Honda) 1992 Acura Integra and the whole dash is now a mess. It had been professionally installed. The dome light now doesn't work, the "door open" warning lights stay on, the clock is messed up, etc. I installed the fancy head in another car, in a 1992 Honda Civic. That works perfectly. Sounds like you need to find a professional installer to re-do your new head. I think the dash lights and the taillights are on the same circuit/fuse.
If it's running rough, chances are that it's misfiring. If the Check Engine light is flashing/blinking, it is definitely misfiring. If that's the case, drive it as little as possible... Or straight to the mechanic because the more you drive it while it's misfiring, the higher the chance is of you ruining your catalytic converter.
Sounds like maybe the ECU had taken in some water. Is your ECM located behind the engine on the firewall? There are two large fuses located on the passenger side wheel well in the engine bay. They are two large (2" plastic covers) over them.
the knob or wheel that turns on your dome light is the first thing I would check...the wheel or knob needs to be turned to the right all teh way until u hear a click that turns on ur dome light. That also turns on ur dash lights..or at least it should be the same button/knb or wheel that ur thumb can turn. hope this helps...Owners manual should also tell u where its at..under the category "Interior lights".
you say stopped running steering locked up the steering lock is mechanical and has nothing to do with the actually running of the engine so i am presumming that the car was idling stalled on its own and the steering as you tried to restart it locked or the steering won,t turn it won,t if the engine s not running as it is helped by the power steering pump which doesn,t work unless then engines running but if the steering has just locked up then you won,t be able to turn the steering in which case you,ll need a new steering lock not that big a job yates210456
