Default Question on electrical problem.... dash light is not working!

Just installed indash CD player on my friend's Nissan Sentra GXE 98. Although everything is working perfectly, dash light is not working..... I checked if all the fuses are ok, and none of the open fuses were found. What else could be the cause of the problem? I had tried to disconnect everything (CD player) and turned on the dash light. It is still not working.... any suggestion? I looked at the both fuse boxes located inside/outside the vehicle.

Thanks in advance

If you're talking about the night-time dimmable dash lighting, two things to consider are (1) in installing the CD, you accidentally unplugged/cut a wire behind the dash that controls this and (2) in installing the CD, you accidentally shorted out the dimming module for that lighting circuit.
Best bet is to ask for help on a Nissan board, or at least the Audio & Electronics forum here.

This is true, I installed an aftermarket radio a few years ago in my 93 Impreza. I noticed the int. lights never worked after that, and believe me, I screwed around with it testing the switch and what not and could not get these lights to work. At night my as was calibrated good tho cause I could tell what speed I was going at night when I turned on the dome light. My final solution was:

I went back to the stock wiring harness, there were I believe 2 extra wires which werent connected, I connected them and they didn't work? do I took my remote wire and touched one of the wires and the lights turned on. One small problem they are on whenever the car is on? Oh well they work right?

If you need more explanation PM me.
