If you are installing an aftermarket radio, and using a wire harness to do so (do it, it saves time and hassle), there will be a blue wire jumper
connecting two pins on the harness. clip that. It is supposed to be for a power ant/amp jumper setting, but unfortunately it messes with the dash
dimming and black panel functions. clipping this wire fixes the issue.
