I replaced the stock radio system and put a aftermarket system in. Used some of the wire to power the radio, but others are taped off to the side. But after a few days, lights started messing up. When I turned the ignition over, the low beams came on and all the brake lights illuminated and stayed on. I have no turn signals, no hazards, no high beams, no fog lights, and no rear license plate light. The computer where the speedometer and gauges are don't work either.
I even changed the fuel line and the wire harness with the one the engine came with now it won't start at all
I'm hoping that it is a problem with the automatic settings for each driver. Problem is that the door switch is broken. Disconnect it to fix problem???
