    nar thats not it these two wires went into the original stereo and come out of a seperate plug into the stereo. These wires only have power to them when you turn the headlights on, so i think there must of been some sort of loop or something in the original stereo but thanks for trying to help. i even got one of those adapters that go from the original wiring harnes to the kenwood stereo but that still didn't work

First make sure you haven't turned the dash lights down so low that you can't tell that they are on. After that look for a wire coming from your headlight switch that is disconnected. Your headlight switch is also a "dimmer" switch and a separate power wire is probably required to operate this dimmer switch connected to your dash lights (including the lights in your stereo) you have probably ran this variable wire to your stereo and inadvertantly disconnected your dash lights.

I have a 1991 ford festiva i changed my radio and now my shifter and my dash lits dont work are they wired in with the factery radio


Hi, the factory radio uses the illumination wire, but the aftermarket radio does not. You have to make sure that wire is taped off so it doesn't short the illumination circuit. Check your tail lights fuse. If it's blown, pull the head unit and disconnect/tape off the illumination wire (blue with a white stripe) from the factory harness. Then put in a fresh fuse. If you have more questions, please specify the model of the head unit.
