The instrument panel no longer illuminates after stereo installation. Did I fry the BCM?

Asked by Nov 22, 2014 at 08:44 PM about the Hyundai Santa Fe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've just installed an after market stereo in my 2007 Santa Fe Limited and while everything is in working order, I discovered that the instrument panel no longer illuminates. While the headlight switch is in the OFF position, I do have illumination at the clock and the climate screens however. Thanks a bunch for any advice.

The factory radio you removed,has a light wire running to it,it may be that the wire is hooked to another wire,or grounding out causing this.

It is hooked in for dimmer purpose.

Thanks for the quick tip. I'll re-check my connections to the factory harness again.

I'm installing a similar stereo in my 2007 santa fe, my factory stereo has dimmer + and dimmer - wire and my after market radio just has the one wire for the illumination. Would this hook to the dimmer + on the factory harness?
