    Did you buy a wiring harness that plugs into the factory harness or did you cut the wires? Does the radio your hooking up have a memory wire?

I bet you the "battery" supply wire touched a ground somehow and blown a fuse. This wire is responsible for the memory, since it always have battery voltage in it. Unless of course you take out the battery connection. I would recomend looking for that blown fuse first. If the stereo was hooked up right you should not have memory problem anymore and the interior light working again. If you still have memory problem, you probably have the "battery" supply connected to the red accesory wire, or you have them both together. Having them both together is not a bad thing, only that it should be connected to the "battery" supply. You can turn on your radio with the ignition switch off. If you hook both on the "accesory wire" you would loose all your setting and memory on the radio each time you turn off the ignition switch. Remember not to touch the speaker wire to the ground, because the amplifier in the radio will be fried up in a fraction of a second. Some good radio has a protection circuit for that, but don't bet on it. I am confident this will help.

Radio not powering up

Factory or aftermarket? Check fuses (should be 2 usually one marked radio and one marked either cigar lighter or interior lights. If aftermarket make sure you have 12v on the memory wire (usually yellow) and ignition switched wire (usually red) as well as good ground on the usually black wire. If so then disconnect for a few minutes to reset

I have 96 chevy monte carlo the speedometer wont work

The problem is the radio change wasn't done properly. The first indication of that was when you said

"they changed the factory radio it and when you turn off the radio the speedometer works"

Other factory things commonly run through the radio even though you may not expect they would. I don't know what your wiring is like now. Did they hack the factory plug off? If not, it should be relatively easy to put the wiring back like it was. You could then either get a factory radio for that car cheap. Salvage yard, maybe ebay, maybe a friend has one laying around etc. You could seek out a proper wiring harness made to put an aftermarket radio in. Crutchfield is a great place to search for special harnesses.

If the plug has been hacked off and you just have wires hanging, you'll need to figure out what is what. Again, if you go to a Salvage yard (junk yard) you might find a 96 Monte like yours with a factory plug you could hack off and re- wire to your car. I will include a diagram showing that the speed sensor input is part of the radio circuit as well as a link to Crutchfield. I'm trying to give you options so you can pick the one that works best for you.

I bought a 96 jeep cherokee sport & the interior lights only come on for the front passenger door. the three other doors & the hatch dont turn on the interior lights & i cant find any fuse box...

Can you turn on the lights with the Interior light switch?. If a light works, obviously the fuse is good. You will need a wiring diagram and a test light to figure out where to start.

It's not a fuse, It is the internal wiring, the wiring from your dome light to your wiring harness is bad.. have you recently put in an aftermarket CD player?
