What would cause the fuse for the dash and back lights to keep blowing after installing a CD player in a 1994 Nissan Pathfinder?

Fuse Problem

In your wiring you have caused a power wire for the lights to come in contact with ground. the closest one that i can think of is the cig lighter illumination wire. it is on the same loom as the stereo. either that or you have used the light circuit for power to your radio and have overloaded it. p.s. check the red with yellow stripe wire it is for illumination and it may be grounded or connected to your power to the stereo.

I had the same problem after i did mine. I had hooked stereo ground wire to the backlight from the old stereo. It looked like ground when i checked it with multimeter. Make sure your ground wire is on steel or chassis.
