When i purchased my honda the dash cluster lights and climate control lights worked fine, but i had to straight wire my cd player cause someone cut the plug and and while doing that the lights just kinda shorted out. i checked both fuses under the dash and under the hood and neither fuses are blown...any help?????? or just need a new dash cluster??

it sounds like you probably grabbed the wrong wire behind the dash for your stereo. There are two wires back there, one for illumination (12 volts when lights are on) and one for dimmer (changes between 12 and ~ 1 or 2 volts) when you use the dimmer knob on the dash, and these two cannot be hooked up to ground.
what year civic?

check your radio wires again and make sure red/black is not connected to anything (other than an illumination wire on your new stereo, which should be orange/white)
