Radio and headlight issue lol.

So I am not new to wiring stuff and have done many radio installs and this one went very well, but when ever i turn my headlights on the radio shuts off and i lose dash lights. Anyone have any ideas on where i should start looking? Im gonna rip into it tomorrow.

you crossed 2 power wires to each other somewhere

you should of just ran a new fused wire from the battery

with all of these new computer controlled vehicles these days
tapping into a wire that is connected to another source is a very bad idea
especially when you run the risk of frying the engine computer

Usually the Illum wire is Orange. Disconnect it and see if that fixes your problem. I usually don't hook that up anyway.
