Exclamation ** No light's in Dash Clusters. **

Hi all,
I am needing some help. I have a 2000 Acura TL 3.2L. I just bought it and installed an ACH-271bt (Pioneer DVD H/U) for my Aux Battery, Amp and my 2 12" 3k DB Drives.. Well After I installed it I noticed my dash lights weren't coming on but the opposite. The Gear lights on the dash go really dim and the lights for the Tach, Speed, gas area's don't come one. Neither does the lights at the shifter area. ALL other lights works fine.

I took it to the Honda Dealership near me and they said it was the "small Lights" fuse #20 under the hood fuse box.. Well, they changed it and immediately popped again. They told me it was from my radio. Well I pin-pointed the wire's (Orange and Orange/white) from the Metra harness to a single Orange/white on the back of the H/U.. So I fixed that and replaced the #20 fuse under the hood. And nothing still. The fuse is holding and not popping.

So.. which leaves me to this.. Could it be my Driverside Multiplexer? I don't even know what that thing does but I read in another post it works with the "small lights" fuse.. I am so at a lose..

Someone please help me.. the Radio #9 fuse on passenger side is fine and the lights fuse on the driver side is fine. So is the #20 under the hood..

So now im clueless as to what to fix or replace now..
Someone with KNOWLEDGE about this please please help me..
