Electrical problem
1988 Honda CRX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 176000 miles

Last week I left the lights on and had to jump the battery. The person who tried to jump me had a lot of corrosion and we couldn't get a spark. Someone else came by to help - took the battery out of his car (which was the same brand as mine only larger) and put it in my car long enough to start it. It started right up but the radio is now completely dead. It's not the fuses although 1 fuse was blown not related to the radio. I replaced the fuses anyway. Now besides the radio when I step on the brake the clock goes dim and the speedometer light comes on dimly. When the headlights are on this is not a problem. But this morning I turned the headlights on and smelled buring electrical. Any ideas?
