Start with your fusebox and look for bad fuses. I suspect if dash lights out you have no tails lights either. They're usually on same circuit. And if by any chance you have trailer wire/plug in the back, check to make sure that's not dangling, shorted or corroded.

Lights on istrument cluster and heat/ac control went out on 2002 1500 silverado ls

Hi William, I'm glad to help!

William, before running after another cluster I'd make certain that the fuse was not blown during the stereo installation. Check all fuses first with a test light just to make sure. Hope this helps and have an awesome day William.

Random misfire.

Fire it up at night and look for arc over in the dark- you should see a lot of it. You might see some carbon tracking during the day, but you WILL see most of the instances of arc over- which is energy not going to the plugs. Do not try it in a garage unless you have a garage door set up for it and extra fresh air coming in elsewhere.

LCD not showing the clock or station

Behind the display there is a small 12 volt light bulb that needs to be changed.

You have to remove the radio and take it apart to replace those lights.

If you are able to do this yourself that would be the cheapest way. Otherwise I suggest you buy a radio from wreck yard.

Radio display is dim during night

Sounds like you have a dimming switch problem. You can pull the switch out, any I'd bet you have a burnt wire at the connector. It's a comman(<spelling?) problem.
