Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
My fiance and I just bought a 300zx and he decided to change all the locks including the ignition. We also bought a new radio and installed that as well. Since we made those changes we are having trouble with lights. The high beams work but not your regular headlights, there are no dash lights to illuminate the gauges but the radio and clock lights up and the tail lights don't work but we have brake lights. He has looked at the wiring under the steering column and says it looks fine. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?
Well, to accurately determine the problem as fast as possible you could perform a ECU diagnostics.Located Here: http://www.nicoclub.com/articles.php?id=249406check and verify the diagnostic meaning using the FSM (Factory Service Manual)Located here: http://300zx-twinturbo.com/cgi-bin/manual.cgiWhen your fiance replaced the radio, there is a ground wire that will be behind the radio bevel (the face plate around the bevel) this is just clipped in and can be removed by simply pulling -- be careful they can crack easily.After you remove the bevel, look around for any grounding wires that have been removed.On average a shop will charge you $60 approx to correct this issue. (Based off of my local area)If what i recommended didnt help, check the ECU diagnostics, it's very easy to perform and will give you an exact description of where to look for your problem =) If you need further help (same goes for anyone) email me at firstname.lastname@example.orgBest Regards,Kyle

Start with checking all the fuses. you could have shorted out a wire when installing the radio.
