Default Tail lights don't work

Hi all. I recently installed an alpine deck into my 99 Ranger, but now my tail lights and dashboard don't light up. I checked the fuses and bulbs and they seem to be fine. Can someone point me in the right direction as to where to check to fix this?

This is a problem because I've gotten pulled over by cops twice and so now I cant drive when it gets dark. And seeing that winter is coming upon us I would like to get it fixed soon!

Thanks

My best guess is check the wires you spliced (if you spliced them for the radio) and check the connections at the GEM as well, make sure nothing got cut

I'm with Clinton on that one. I'd also check you're wiring that goes to the tails

Hmm I was thinking something along those lines. But I don't know how we could have cut the wrong wire. The ford ranger wiring harness sheet didn't say anything about tail lights.
