You have grounded to the radio light wire, not the ground. It is a negative wire that is in the harness, and when you turn on headlights you blow the dash lights. Remove your radio ground from the car, and find a new ground. It should be a large black and green wire (larger than all the others). replace the fuse, and turn on the lights...you will see your old ground wire is actually hot now. Common mistake, and it tests like ground wire with lights OFF, but not on. Relentless
Illumination is the ability to lighten the screen or darken the screen with the other dash lights on the vehicle. normally you will have two orange wires coming from the cars wiring harness one with a white stripe one without. The orange/white wire will make the stereo dim or brighten with the dash lights. the solid orange wire will dim/brighten the stereo with the headlights. so if it is night you will have the headlights on, when you turn the headlights on the stereo dims so the light from the stereo will not blind you at night. while the headlights are off the stereo will be bright so the stereo light will be visible in the daytime
Car stereo wiring color codes for a Mustang can be seen on a diagram. The diagram may be found in an owner manual or request from the stereo company.
The headlights turn off because you have accidently hooked the stereo's power wire onto the headlight relay wire. When you turn on the stereo, there's not enough power left to run the headlight relay. Thus, no headlights. Re-wire the stereo.
It is important to know what is going on inside of a vehicle. The headlights dim when a stereo is turned on or turned up because power is being drawn away from the lights to the stereo.

whatever song you happen to be playing on the stereo
I'm guessing your stereo is aftermarket. If so, then whoever installed it did it wrong or tried something tricky.

The stereo is wired wrong. In this case it sounds like the ground wire of the stereo is hooked to the dimmer circuit. The ground wire of the stereo should be connected to the vehicle chassis.
buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart or Radio Shack
An iPod can be connected to a stereo system for the purpose of playing music stored on the iPod with the quality of a stereo system. An iPod can be connected to a stereo either through a dock, or with the headphone jack on the iPod connected to the Aux In port of the stereo.
If it is an aftermarket stereo then i would say that the installer tied into the dashboard illumination or headlight power wire for 12 volt power for the stereo.
I am having the same problem. Got the tool used to do it, but no luck pulling it out. I am about to try a crowbar LOL
Just about most will, but you should go to a car stereo place and check with them for specific models.
There are two U shaped tools that you can buy from an auto parts store (Very cheap). You simply put them into the the small holes on either side of the stereo and they disable to locking mechanisms. Very easy to do. The radio then slides straight out.
When driving at night and you see you headlights dimming when the bass hits. The rule is 1 frad for every 1000 watts If you buy a cap.
This isn't a question therefore it cannot be answered.
The stereo light should not go out. It should get dimmer though. They assume that if your headlights are on, it is dark outside and you don't need as much light to read the radio display as you would in bright light.

I do not believe it is. I know the stock stereo from the 2006 Mazda 3 does not support mp3 cds.
Check wiring diagram one wire should be "constant hot" for memory
it is probably a short circuit if it is dimming your lights. the smoke is burning insulation on the wires. it must be an wire that is not protected by a fuse. do you have an aftermarket stereo?
The vehicle should have a pop apart dash. Though it requires a specialty tool which fits into the two holes on the sides of the radio.
