I changed stereo and now the dashlights do not work


Check your park light fuse. You may have blown the fuse for the dashlights/park lights by accidentally grounding the night illumination wire, located in the radio wiring. That wire runs from the dash lights to the radio, to illuminate the radio at night. Alternately, if the park light fuse keeps blowing when you replace it, you might've hooked that night light wire up to the wrong wire on your radio.

check dimmer for dash lights... and toyota kills dashlights if the taillight fuse is blown. so check taillights. sometimes the trailer connector will short out. :) good luck.

You may want to check the wiring under/inside the dash. The AC may have blown the scent of burning wires or other components from the dash. THere may be copper wires that have been exposed or have shorted one another. Then check on the fuse once all wires have been checked out.

Turn on your headlights and check to see if your taillights are working. They act as a fuse to your dashlights, its a safety thing
