Re: cut out factory radio...could i had shortened...
Actually, I still have the factory-installed radio in my 1999 Honda Accord, and it started cutting out randomly about three months ago. It's some kind of power issue, i.e., when I speed up, it's ok, but when I brake it cuts out. However, once it cuts out, if I hit the power window switch the radio will come back on.

check that dimmer is turned up ---and check connections around where radio work was done for damaged disconnected line connector also check dash fuses not just fuses from radio --or your radio may not be compatible to your dimmer circuit -most oem radios display are Incorporated with dash functions and after market ones are not
Did you install an aftermarket radio? Did it have a wiring harness adapter kit for the installation? If so, the adapter should have made the install a plug-and-play operation. If not, and you sppliced wires into the vehicle's dashboard wiring harness, you could have cut into something you shouldn't have. More than likely, during the removal of the old radio and installation of the new one, you inadvertently disconnected a non-radio plug/jack on the dashboard wiring harness. If someone else did the work, take it back to them and ask them to make it right.
sounds like its wired up wrong, remove the radio unplug the connector and remove the radio, then check all your fuses must have blown one when radio was installed, after that charge battery and with radio removed see if battery goes dead, if not recheck wiring to radio, common problem with vw aftermarket radio,they are installed wrong,good luck,
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
did u know that they make a harness for your car that plugs into your factory harness and then adapts to your aftermarket radio? for the lights, you have blown the interior light fuse, it may be the same fuse as the cigar lighter.Below is your radio wire colors and what they do. 1990 Toyota Corolla Car Stereo Radio Wiring Diagram.

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.
