Hello... You might what to make sure that all the grounds are properly grounded.... If you think they are, then try moving the ground connector to a different place to ground it.

Good Luck...

Tail lights and dash lights went out after installing aftermarket radio.


Sometimes when you bring something somewhere,the people can mess up.They don't want to get bad word out on their business,so they say nothing is wrong.I fixed my laptop before,and they broke plastic,on it.We brought it back and they said they would fix it.They used super glue!They said they would install new plastic,but lied.The point is,if they accidentally connected wrong wires,it can cause this stuff.If you smell smoke from it,bad sign.

1999 honda accord lx sedan removed stock dash no dash lights after aftermarket stereo wired in random red wire leading from stock stero to car would love to be able to have dash lights at night everything...


Most cars have the dash light wire in the wires going to the radio. Did you use a store bought adapter the plugs into the honda wire harness to connect the radio? Idf not you may have the dash light wire grounded with the radio and it's blown the dash light fuse. first unplug the radio. then go though the fuse and find the blown one under the dash fuse panel. Replace the fuse.( if their not uswed up the fuse panel has extra fuses and thier marked as spares). try the dash lights, if their workingyou need to find the wire at the radio and make sure it"s not being connected to ground. You might need to use a test light to look for power and when you find it turn the lights on and off the be shure that you have the right wire. If it's still not working you may need to investagate the dash light dimmer swich that turns the brightness up and down to the dash lights. The overload as the radio was connected possibly wrong can blow this switch instead of blowing the fuse. The swich pries out of the dash and you can test it withthe test light. One wire is ground ones the power from the dash panel fuse coming from the headlight switch and the other is the lights thems selves. This switch it'self lights in the dark, so it has a ground for it's bulb.

I have a wire hanging down from my dash around the fuse area the car was running fine til this wire came out now it doesnt start what is it and how do i fix it?


The is no factory wire on a focus that will do that. It might be an aftermarket radio, alarm, keyless entry system that was poorly installed by previous owner and now shorted out. A fuse may be blown as well. If an aftermarket security system, it may be preventing the car from starting until everything is back in place (or completely removed). Good luck

How do find the radio fuse when it is blown


Easy way. With a test light connected to ground ( a test light is a tool that looks like a ice pick with a clear handle with a bulb inside, and a wire coming out the end with a clip on it) Connect the clip on the light to a metal ground under the dash and with the fuse panel where you can see it, touch the pointer to each side of the back of the fuses, with the key on. The light should lght on both sides of a good fuse. If a fuse lights the light on one side and not the other it's blown. For the radio to work three fuses all need to be good as theirs all the time power and key on power and lighting as the dash lights power. The cigar fuse many times provides the all the time power, But if it's blown the radio won't play. Pull one fuse at a time and look at them to see if the bar inside the fuse is good ( they can look good and be bad) back to the test light meathod, Look the fuses up in the owers manul and it'll tell you the location of the fuse but the radio fuse can be good and the radio strill not work as the cigar fuse has to be good too, There;s another fuse panel under the hood that has the main fuses near the battery, Again the test light is fastest and easiest as any fuse blown even though it's not the radio fuse can make the radio not play. Aftermarket radios can have inline fuses instlled by the radio installer and some have fuses right on the back of the radio.

Cut out factory radio...could i had shortened something or blown?


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.
