You might want to check all of your fuses. There should be two fuse boxes, one under the dash or kick panel and one in the engine compartment.

Hi, not sure what model you have, but you can get the factory wire colors here:
page down to select your model.

It sounds like you tapped into the brake light wire rather than the illumination wire. Also, there should be an antenna wire in the car if you have a retractable antenna. Did you purchase a GM connector with the new steroe to wire it in?

Lately i have changed the head unit in my car and had to splice the wires to rig it in there and now my odometer lights dont work and my passenger windows and my rear windows wont go down or up i dont know...

It sounds like you have blown quite a few fuses, this most commonly happens when you leave the battery connected when you fit the new source unit. I would start by checking the fuses in your internal fuse panel, then move on to the relays and the fuses in the engine bay. easiest way to check is too physicly remove them and check that the metal strand inside the fuse cap is still connected and that there is no charring on them. the quickest way however is to use a test light on both of the metal tips of the fuse, if one lights up and the other one doesnt on the same fuse, then you have found your culprit.
oh and please dont forget to rate, either 4 thumbs or none please

Blue illumination doesnt work

unscrew the plexiglass and try to get to the light and mess with it to see if it shook something loose, if that doesnt work, you might have to buy a new light....hope this helps!!
