installed my first cd player yesterday. everything went fine but that night when i turned my headlights on the dash lights went out (speedometer, fuel, etc.). when i would turn my headlights back off, the dash lights behind the steering wheel would come back on. this morning i took out the cd player and noticed i had connected the orange/black wire from the harness to the orange/white from the player. i dc'ed them but now the dash lights do not come on at all, whether the headlights are on or off. the ac and heat lights under the player still work fine, my tailights work fine, pretty everything EXCEPT the dash lights works fine. i also checked what i think is the correct fuse and it does not appear to be blown. that is as far as i have gotten. anyone have any ideas?
also, the dimmer is turned all the way up, it is not the dimmer dial to the left of the steering wheel.
