Have you had any work done on the dash/ignition areas? Is it an aftermarket radio? Most likely there is a short or loose wire. First, disconnect the battery. Make sure fuses are in right spot and have right fuse (easy to google diagram) not just inside car but also in battery junction box with relays and fuses under hood (the larger box), there is a 20amp for audio there, the ones inside are numbered on the cover and I believe in the owner's manual, next can push in tiny holes on front of radio to pop out radio and check wiring. Next, can also check the wire going to the antenna, it's behind the panel in the trunk, takes a little struggle to remove/replace but it can be done, the bottom pulls off, the top screws in depending on if you are replace part or whole. Good luck:)
Check your fuses and double check your wiring. You've likely mis-wired something to the radio that also supplies power for the lights in the dash. So if you find a blown fuse, you might blow it again if it's a wiring issue. Of course, you may have bumped a wire to ground during the install which blew the fuse, so replacing it may be all that's needed.
I had an issue where a "small light fuse" in my 97 accord blew and my parking lights and dash lights didn't work. Small fuse under the hood was all that needed to be replaced.
you have to check all fuses with a test light both fuse boxes under hood and under dash... if good next to look for is the light switch itself... has any radio work been done to the lately... if so alot of times hooked up wrong will blow park fuse as one of the wires to radio is the park voltage to tell radio to dim down some
Some of the factory and aftermarket radios have a fuse in the rear of the unit. You will need to remove the radio from the dash to check it. It will have a spade type fuse in it. If it is bad the radio will not work.
