There is a dimmer switch to the left of the steering wheel that controls this and also controls the lights in your factory stereo, first make sure it is turned on and your headlights are on, turn up the relay dimmer. If this doesn't work, ask the person that hooked up your stereo to retrace his steps as the stereo may have been the common connection for this and now removed it won't complete the circuit.
Sounds like you have the stereo ground wired into the wire that dims the light on the factory stereo when the headlights turn on. Rewire stereo with proper ground, check all other wiring to insure it's done properly,replace blown fuses for lights & stereo. Should be good to go.
Nissan change their color codes on their harnesses all the time , a diagram won't be much use. What has happened is that Nissan has a wire that appears to be an earth in the stereo harness , but goes live when the headlights are turned on ( it is there for the factory stereo to dim the lights when the headlights are turned on.) Easiest way to connect stereo is to use a Multitester set on 20 volts to find Power , Accessory and earth wires, remembering to turn your lights on and off each time to check for the Nissan sneaky wire. ( You are lucky, I have seen whole looms go up in smoke because of that wire ) To isolate the individual speaker wires, solder a couple of wires to a AA battery and " flash " it across the pairs of suspected speaker wires while listening for a " Crackle " from the speakers, this is a handy way to figure out which wires go to each speaker without having to pull the doors apart to look.

Start by setting your auto headlight switch to off if this solves it replace your headlight switch If your car is equipped with daytime running lights there could be a short bridging them with your auto head lights look for broken or frayed wires do this also if you have installed or had someone install an aftermarket stereo or speakers/sub woofer, amplifier. Good Luck with this
you could have a problem with the alternator, you will need a multimeter to test the battery then the battery with the engine running. HID lights ABS will not work at below 10 volts. the alternator may be charging but not at its full power, battery should be 12.05 volts fully charged and with alternator should make the voltage at the battery with engine running, should be at 14 volts. I don't think the radio would be the problem unless it has been wired wrong but that should not be the case if used original wiring. but if the alternator and battery is good then i would check the radio, it could be sorting out somewhere if not fitted correctly or has a fault.
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.
