Check your fuse box for any fuse that might have blown during the installation. the dashboard light fuse will be inside the fuse box on the door, and tail lights are probably hooked up to a fuse in the engine compartment fuse box.

if you need to know what fuse is what, they're listed in the back of the owners manual.

Dashboard light out


Yes it can be a fuse, the dash illumination and the tail lights are on the same fuse, check the fuse on the inside fuse panel at the left lower dash, the fuses are marked on the cover, look for the "tail" fuse and try replacing it, if that doesn't fix it let me know.

Dim Dashboard Lights


I think this indicates that you have an exterior light out. Check the tail lights, brake lights and the three bulbs that are mounted at the top of the rear window.

there should be a smaller fuse block with larger fuses. one should say either main or alt either way they are fuses that are larger and you can see through the top. if they do not come up easily, do not force it. some are attatched below with screws. the one you are looking for will probably come right out.

Tail and dashboard fuse keeps blowning


unhook black wire from harness and the ground from pioneer unit install the ground wire from pioneer unit to frame of car (you may need extra wire to do this) make sure the black wire from pioneer unit is bolted to frame of car not to the harness black wire........fuses will no longer blow and you will have your lights.
hope this helped
