Default I'm having problems!!

Okay so I just bought an 03 Bonny and am trying to put my system in it but I keep encountering problem after problem!

First, I can't find a place to hook my ACC wire for my deck, for some reason it isn't getting any power, so I hooked it to the ignition wire which I found out you can't do because it must interfere somehow and the car wouldn't start, so I hooked it back up to constant power but I hate having to turn my deck on and off everytime I get into my car, anywhere else I could hook it to?

Second, somehow in doing all of this, my security, service engine soon, brake, and all those lights came on, and now my windows don't roll down, locks don't work, gauges sit at 0, and dash lights don't illuminate... I really don't know much about cars and I've checked fuses and all that and they are all good, so I don't know if I hooked a wire up wrong or just really messed something up or what? I would love to avoid installation costs since I have everything installed already just having some problems!

Right now I have my negitive battery cable unhooked for about an hour to see if that will reset the security light.. which is all I can think of at the moment..?

Any sort of input would be amazing!! Thank you!

I actually ran a pretty intracate acc setup because I used it for the remote wire for two amps and for the trigger on an isolator I have between my two batteries. I think you can get away with using the cig lighter. try that. You may have caused some back feeding by hooking your radio to that ignition. I hope that removing it from the circuit and pulling the battery cables helps. If not, one of the electrical gear heads will have to step in. and they know their stuff

I am not a expert on radios, but i do know the vehicles computer is hooked up to the radio. I asked a radio installion company about the newer factory radios once. They told me some vehicles they have to keep the factory radio in the vehicle but like under the seat or something. And they have harnesses to reroute the factory radio and still allow you to have your after market radio in the dash. I don't know if this is whats going on with you but its possible. Just a idea.
