Re: dash board light wont go on because factory stereo...
The cruise control has an ECU(electrocic control unit) which enables the car to keep moving considering the load and speed and slops too...so i don't think it should get disturbed by the stereo..
but anyway if it was doing so then you did gud.
while your buzzer doesn't work then get the electrical circuits checked and also check if while taking out stereo the sockets were loosened.. :)

You can not do what your doing on todays
high tech vehicles.
The computer knows what radio was installed at the factory,
so if it stolen ,it can not be used,nor can you
install an aftermarket ,without a lot of system knowledge.
A Car Audio Store may have done a conversion,
but on an LS,I wouldn't bet on it.
Did you use the factory ground when you installed the stereo? If you did thats your problem, the factory grounds on dodges act really weird, ground your stereo directly to the chassis (metal dash support under the dash) your problem will likely go away.
havent a clue without looking at it but this is one of them things best left alone as i have had similar before where it runs through radio,including the alarm and the factory immobiliser cut in.just loop from another circuit to make the lights work
Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
