I bought an aftermarket radio, as well as an adapter harness from future shop. On the adapter harness, the bag read 1999-2003 hyundai accent, but mine is a 2004. I was told, however, that it still applies as hyundai didn't change their wiring. Is this true?

Also, after I finally pulled out the stock radio, and installed the aftermarket deck, the dash lights stopped working! At first the deck didn't work as well, and so I checked the fuses. The audio fuse was blown, so I changed it. The interior lamp fuse, however, was still intact. The deck now works, but the dashboard lights and the clock do not.

One question is this: Are the dashboard lights connected to the deck? I noticed on the adapter harness it had a wire for dash lights, but there was no wire to connect this from the wiring that came with the deck.

Any suggestions, answers or help would be appreciated very much so.

Thanks in advance.

jsinton is an unknown quantity at this point

Dashboard lights are connected to the deck by way of the body control module. Did you disconnect the negative battery cable before you started your project? I see this problem all the time, I suspect you fried your BCM.

Jsinton, Thanks for your reply! I actually really lucked out. A couple of days ago I noticed that my rear left tail light was also not working, so I check the fuse box in the engine compartment. Sure enough the fuse for the tail light was burnt out! So I put a new one in and the instrument cluster lights started working! so somehow those lights are also on that circuit. I noticed in the owners manual for description of the fuses it does say illumination in the description for the LH tail lamp. So I'm really glad it turned into such a minor fix. Thanks again!
