Pull the radio back out and see what happens.

I have tried with radio in and out and the original, The replacement is identical stock. The dimmer switch turns on the dome and foot lights. but the door doesnt turn them on. could it be the ground wire under airbag. It goes into a bolt hole for a puller. Maybe since i changed the ignition out? Please help me im working on it now. everytime i put the radio fuse in it blows soon as i turn the key. The lights in dash went out around the same time hard to say, but i cant see anythiing i pulled cluster out bulbs are good.

bad grounds dont cause fuses to blow. you have a wire on that circuit touching ground. common things are backs of the fuse panel shifted while messing with stuff, or less common put a multi pin plug in skewed
