Default 98 Accord LX: Multiplexer?

I have been reading through threads, but none of them seem to fit my situation. I've had my aftermarket stereo in for about eight months with no problems, but as I was messing with my dash (tearing stuff out) I realized the next day that my dash lights and tail lights no longer come on.

I barely moved the stereo, and nothing is wired any differently, so I'm having a hard time figuring out what I did. I have checked the driver's side fuses for the cluster/tail lights, and the fuse is fine. Any ideas?

Edit: All of the threads I have read about blown multiplexers were about the stereo being poorly installed. My stereo was professionally installed, and, like I said, I have had no issues with it until I recently unscrewed my stereo and moved it to see behind it. My battery was not disconnected. I didn't intend to move it, but I got caught up with learning what was under the dashboard.

there should be a fuse box on the passenger side as well in that model if I am not mistaken. the fuse for the tail lights in on that side. a friends car's tail lights stopped working and we checked every fuse. every ground. every thing we could think of. then we found the fuse box on the passenger side and the fuse was in there. blown.

Hope this is the problem and it is an easy fix.

I appreciate the reply. I checked the passenger side fuse box and didn't see a fuse for the tail lights on that side. My fuse for the cluster/tail lights in the driver side fuse box is fine.
