    Just installed an AVIC 120BT and my cluster dash lights don't turn on. Funny thing as I had connected all 3 orange wires (wht/org (1st aftermarket harness)), wht/org (HU), blk/org (2nd aftermarket harness) together and my dash lights went off when I turned my headlights on. Then, I turned the headlights off and the dash lights came on.

    So, I disconnected the black/orange wire from the mix and everything was good except the dash lights still didn't come on like they're supposed to. Then, when I grounded the orange/black wire (by accident) to the HU chassis the dash lights came on but the same thing all over again. I almost think by connecting the blk/org wire to the other orange wires it grounds it out completing the circuit.

    What do I need to connect in order for the dash lights to work again? Is there another wire I have to tap into since the aftermarket harness doesn't provide direct connection...or so it seems?

    Any help would greatly be appreciated :(
