There is a wire that has been grounded that goes to all of your lights that you described...check the wiring and see if any wires are damaged. also check your fuses. also check for bad wiring harnesses.

    the fuses you will want to check are in the cabin usually right next to the driver side door.....but occasionally on the passenger side. you can see if a wiring harness is bad just by unplugging it and looking for corrosion or rust or if it physically looks damaged. to check if a fuse is blown you have to remove the fuse and in the middle of the fuse there is a piece of metal connecting the two prong that are inserted into the fuse box if that piece of metal is broken n looks burnt its blown if not then you have a more serious problem such as a bad wiring harness.....if the fuse is blown it means there is a wire being grounded to the frame behind your stereo....check fuses first. also when you take your headunit out to look at the wires behind it check for stray wires with actual metal wire exposed....let me know what happens

I have a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and had a pioneer deck installed about a year ago, i am now on my own trying to install subs and amp but having trouble getting the deck out. i do not have the keys to pop the...

Stop by your local car stereo shop & see if they sell them, I believe Mac Tools & or Snap on carry's them. Trying to pry the deck out will almost certainly damage the mount bracket thus loosing your secure fit.
