Well I Installed a new in dash DVD touch screen in my 04 Taco and as soon as I went to turn on my head lights after hooking it up, I heard a little pop and all my dash lights went out... (Found the ACC 10a fuse popped and replaced it with new 10a fuse.) I have been struggling now for the last 2-3 days trying to get this dang dvd player to work and also trying to get my dash lights to come back on but no luck! Even after replacing the fuse, it still didnt help.
After fighting with this "new" DVD player (It was having some major issues) I decided to put my stock stereo back in PRAYING this would fix everything but nope!! Still no dash lights. The headlights and all exterior lights still work normal but when i turn on the head lights, the dash lights should come on but they are not! So now my truck is fully back to its original form with harnesses and all connected again correctly but having issues. (Driving at night is difficult when you cant see your gauges)
For obvious reasons I checked the basics... dimmer switch isnt all the way turned off, checked every single fuse in the fuse panel inside the truck as well as under the hood, no blown fuses. Even the lights that illuminate the letters/numbers on the shifter are out. The clock on the dash is working and the stock radio is illuminating.
PLEASE HELP!! Any ideas would be very appreciated!
