You can bet there is a blown fuse there somewhere. You have apparently wired it wrong. We see this all the time with people installing their own stereos and it often does a lot of damage. They make adapter harnesses for doing this correctly. If you went and cut your harness, it's probably too late already and you will have to bring it to an electrical specialist.

There are numerous fuses being used. You need to use a test light on both sides of every fuse wit the lights turned on.

Disconnected wires at the radio won't cause you to lose the rest of the dash lights.

YOU DON'T RECKON YOU TURNED YOUR CLUSTER ILLUM. DIMMER SWITCH DOWN/ OFF AND DIDN'T REALIZE YOU DID?

SOMETIMES WHEN YOU HAVE REALLY GOOD HELP FROM THE NEIGHBOR OR THE YOUNGINS, THEY MESS WITH STUFF WHILE THEY ARE LEANED IN THERE TALKING TO YOU!
