radio yellow hot wire

Desperate need of any assistance. I've been attempting to install an aftermarket sound bar. Didnt have the right connectors so direct wired it out of radio, speakers worked fine. Pressed my luck by trying to wire the dome light. Spliced into the light right above the pedals thinking that it would work just like that light when the door was open, after that the light above the pedals stopped working as did the radio, put a tester light on the yellow wire into the radio its not hot anymore nor is the yellow side of the light above the pedals. I checked the fuses, and checked the inline yellow fuse that goes to the radio, they were all fine.
Thanks for any help, at this point I've got almost the whole dash torn out of the jeep.

A little more info would be helpful for us to assist you. 1) What year is your Jeep? 2) Was a factory wiring harness ran into the roll bar? 3) After removing your "lighting splice", did your floor light return?

Here is a thread that may help you.

Sounds to me like you missed a blown fuse somewhere...

When you wired in that dome light...tapping the wire to the light under the dash should have worked exactly like you thought. Then you just needed to ground the other wire on the dome light.

Thanks so much, it was a fuse under the hood by the battery. I had checked behind the glovebox but never thought about the ones under the hood. Ive decided i'd let my brother hook up the dome light who is a little more experienced with this stuff. The soundbar sounds great. My jeep is a 99 TJ. I didn't have a factory harness.
