you fried has done a lot wrong and has upset the electronc balance necessary to run the ECM program properly. It is no longer a matter of cutting in anywhere for power. Pull it out and repair any wires cut or spliced then take it to an authorised radio installer shop and have it fitted proprly.
with todays electronic controlled cars ,the best advice is to have the retailer fit the units for you as they have the experience and the tech knowledge to do the job
Hello Friends! This dimming vacuum display is either caused by a power supply failure with the control board, or a the filaments of the display themselves have started to wear-- similar to that of a bad light bulb. Either way, FixYourBoard.com can solve this problem. Contact them 512-355-1108 for more information. The photo below is from a double oven, but we repair single oven displays too.
Most likely bad capacitors. They can be replaced but I wouldn't recommend a novice trying to do so. It requires soldering skills. If you can get into the monitors and check the inverter boards to see if any of the caps look like the ones in this video

I've often seen the display on these units go dim due to a failure in the control board. It may well start out as an intermittent failure. Your comment about covering it reminds me that some ovens have an ambient light sensor to automatically dim the display but I don't recall seeing that on your model.
In either case, it sounds like the classic failure mode we often see.
If you can have the control removed, we may be able to help you, we repair oven controllers at www.fixyourboard.com.
Honda has a problem with the PCB board in the radio, See your Honda dealer for repair info. Service bulletin 04-027 says:
"In some audio units, a component failure on the PCB
(printed circuit board) could cause the audio display to
become dark or dim, and prevent the audio/HVAC
panel buttons from illuminating.
To ensure that customers have adequate warranty
coverage for this potential problem, American Honda is
increasing the warranty on the audio unit display to
7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For
other defects the standard 3 years or 36,000 miles
warranty applies, whichever occurs first."
