    You will have to recheck your wiring because the ground may have been lost. Just to be safe, make sure the dimmer is turned the right way.

    Turn the lights on with the key in the ON position. Then turn the dial on the left side of the dash clockwise.

    You probably shorted the Dimming wire in the stereo wiring harness. Disconnect it from the HU and see if that fixes it. If it does then you have it wired wrong.
