If there is a problem in the radio then just do not hook up the wire that runs to the dash light which in turn dims the radio backlighting and you should be fine,if you need the backlighting to work properly then replace the radio.

I just instalked a new stereo could this have anything to do with my dash lights and tail lights blowing the fuse wen i turn on the headlights


Yes, you could have hook the light wire to a ground. Light wires are usually a dark brown. Not hard to get them mixed up, with low or no lighting when you installed the radio.

look for a "small light" fuse in the fuse box under your hood.
You probably shorted something while installing the radio. If it continues to blow the fuse, you need to pull the radio out and check your wiring.

I just installed a stereo in my 1982 Dodge R50 and all of a sudden my tail lights keep blowing fuses. But my brake lights, blinkers and reverse lights still work. What could the problem be?


There is a wire that runs to the radio to light it up at night, the illumination wire. That wire is also hooked up to the same circuit that the tail lights get power from. If you wired up that illumination wire to the wrong wire on the radio, that will cause it to blow the tail light fuse as soon as you turn on the lights. Double check your wiring, or check to see that the illumination wire is not grounding itself somewhere behind the radio.

Hello A aftermarket radio we installed and now the Dash lights don't and withe the Tail/Running Lights they keep blowing 10 amp fuses


well your installation is the problem. ck all wires and verify thay are connected to the proper wires. if all wires are properly hooked up, cut the wire from the light switch. if that fixes it, then the radio is bad.

My 1990 toyota corolla tail lights and dash lights stopped working after i hooked up a stereo and sub and amp system...i checked the fuse and its good..i cant find any wiring problems..help? anybody?


which fuse did you check. verify the wiring to the radio than comes from the light switch to the radio. if all this worked before , then it has to be work that you have done. the only link from the light switch to the radio is for inst panel dimming. first disconnect that wire and ck fuse for tail lights. make sure there is power on both sides of the fuse, use a test light.

My brake lights work but the tail lights and license plate light don't work every time I turn on the fuse it blows I have a 1984 pontiac fiero.


Remove all bulbs on the tail lights and license plate circuit.
Replace fuse, turn on parking lamps- check if fuse blows without any lamps connected.
If it does, check for short circuit to ground on the taillight/license plate wiring.

If it doesn't blow, re-install one lamp at a time until all lights work. you may have a faulty lamp or lampsocket.

Tail lights


Consider what you have changed when stereo was installed. Using existing wiring is not like it used to be. The electronics has changed that. Going from fuse block is not a good thing.
Try undoing and examining wiring for damage and consider routing from battery. Cables are available for extra wiring from the battery.
