Unhappy Help me fix my electrical problem

Thursday night when leaving work, I just noticed an electrical problem with my car: when I turn my headlights on, the light behind the instrument panel doesn't turn on, neither does the radio's backlight. Also, the power door locks don't work, and the dome light doesn't turn on when I open the door in the auto position (middle), but it does work if I flip it to the on position. I've noticed that the light behind the odometer and radio are bright when the headlights are off, and then turn off when I turn the headlights on. Adjusting the dimmer switch on the headlights does nothing. The fuse for the door locks is blown, the fuse immediately blows when replaced. I didn't notice any other blown fuses.

Electrical details of my car:
I have EDM headlights, with a wiring harness I got from a group buy here on nasioc. I have a mechanical boost gauge with the wire for the backlight plugged straight into the illumination fuse behind the change holder. My v1 radar detector is wired into the light above the rear view mirror. I also have a unitech chip with a vishnu wiring harness.

All of those upgrades were done more than a year ago. The last time any maintanence was done on the car was two months ago when the dealer fixed a leaking fuel rail.

Any help diagnosing the problem would be greatly appreciated.
