looks like you maybe pulled on the harness and shorted some of the electrical out..sorry to say but you need to start over with everything about the car.. each at one time.. then carefully install the radio..
Did you get the key switch checked out ? The dash indicator lights have to be on for the engine to start. So you are not getting power to the dash lights, and probably not to the computer or ignition coil either.
The dash lights coming on doesn't mean your battery is strong enough to turn the car over. That being said, I would lean towards the starter also. I would just have the battery chkd out before you go replacing other things just to be sure. Good luck to you.
The stall in reverse is most likely unrelated to your problem, unless your alternator went bad, and your battery is discharged. Try charging/replacing your battery. A jump start may not work as Dodge trucks don't like to idle well with a weak battery. Then try starting again, if it runs check the voltage at the battery. You should have 13-14.5 volts, if not you have a dead alternator. If it still won't start, please post some more details.
First, be sure that the battery has a good charge for if it's weak there won't be enough power for the starter to kick the flywheel. Second is, if the battery is fully charge and it still won't kick, the starter itself can be faulty. If that's the case, it will surely need replacement.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
maybe you replaced the wrong fuse. or the dash light bulbs are blown,not very likely that all blown at once so you may have only replaced the wrong fuse. if you do not have fuse location,then check them all. under dash drivers side fuse panel. you'r main engine fuses are located under the hood but have nothing to do with your dash lights. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com
Replace the fuse. Most of the time when the tail light fuse is blown it will go un-noticed. This is why they combine the instrument cluster lighting, and tail lights on the same fuse. That way if the dash lights are out you know the tail lights must be out also.
