Default HELP! Electronic functions failing since gauge install

Hey guys,
I began a gauge install about a week ago. I had to pause due to a shady pod that didnt fit right, but the following is what happened in the time since. I removed the factory boost gauge from steering column by snipping yellow and black wires. I removed the factory clock snipping the factory white clock wiring clip. Nothing else was touched, the boost gauge was installed and powered up and functions just fine but the following problems arose in the car; no turn signals, no dome light, no radio unit power, trip odomoeter resets every time car is off, and finally my keyless entry no longer works. PLEASE offer any and all info.

Thanks, Ian

Did you disconnect the battery before cutting those wire you describe? Maybe you shorted something out.

Did you start checking fuses? You can also grab a volt meter(set correctly) and check the battery and different systems of the car.

When you cut the clock harness (presumably by cutting across all the wires simultaneously) you blew a fuse. Check both fuse boxes (under dash and engine compartment) and you'll find it.

You won't need any other ideas once you find the blown fuse.

Did you unplug the hazard switch while doing the gauges? That will kill the turn signals if left unplugged.
