Why is there no lights in your speedometer after installing an after market stereo in a 1990 Subaru Legacy sedan awd?

If it's only your speedometer then you pulled a wire loose when installing probably. If it's the whole dash check the fuse also sometimes the ground used on OEM radios are not true ground and connecting the ground from your new stereo to it will kill the dash lights. Try running the new ground to a metal bracket under the dash or right out to the BAT negative.Also bulb burned out coincidentilly at that time? It's happened many times.
