Default Dash/Tail/Fog lights all out

Hi! I'm a newbie here, but have run into a problem. I have an '03 Ranger Edge. I just replaced the factory 6 disc changer with an aftermarket unit. Since then, my dash lights, tail lights, fog lights won't work. I undid everything and put the factory unit back in, but still didn't work. I have checked all fuses on the dash as well as under the hood. I even put in a new headlight switch. Still nothing. The headlights and brake lights work.

Any help you can provide would be great.

Check your owners manual. The locations may be different depending on year

Anybody else have this same problem and end up being more than a fuse problem? I had this same problem along with a couple other electrical problems so I finally got annoyed and replaced every fuse. Another forum I read up on had said that the turn signal switch had gone bad and they had to replace that. Just trying to find out all the possible problems so I can try it all when I tear my truck apart this weekend.
Thanks
