Ignition switch maybe . Or if it's a automatic transmission it could be the park neutral safety switch. Try putting gear selector into neutral an see if it starts then . Your vehicles is pretty old , have the main battery cables ever been replaced ? Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits using a DVOM - digital volt ohmmeter ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMXENKujYtc&t=103s

The first thing I would check is to see if any of the wires you changed grounded out and caused a fuse to blow. Also it is possible that when you hooked up the lights to the radio it went to the wrong wire causing the problem. Also it is possible that as you worked putting in the radio you accidentally came in contact that feeds the dash lights. So check your fuses that controls the dash lights.
If you pulled the dash panel the dimmer adjustment on the light switch may have been turned off.

There is no manual reset. If a light came on cuz a tire was low, just fill the tire and drive it. Sometimes it takes about 10mins of driving to turn off the light. It's automatic once the speed reaches a certain point

key has to be programmed to vehicle.

First lets see if it's missing spark or fuel do this. Remove a spark plug wire insert a screwdriver into the boot and then hold the metal part of the screwdriver 1/2 in. away from a metal part of the engine block then have someone crank the engine while you watch for spark, to check for fuel. locate and remove the plastic cap on the fuel rail then depress the schraeder valve and then have someone turn the switch on fuel should spray out. Note do these tests in this order to prevent fire. When you find what's missing, use testimonial to find out what to do next. I would explain how to troubleshoot either problem but just one is going to take long enough. I'll wait for several hours for you to reply. If you can't do it now then some other time. I hope this helps. Take care. Remember to use testimonial to reply or just say Hi! Thanks

I would try unplugging the connector to the ABS Module
You will have dash lights on, but can use the truck,the brakes
will work,you just won't have ABS
Then plug it back in
If you still have a MIL lamp
You go to a shop,different one & not a dealer,& ask them to scan for codes in Enhanced Mode & just look at the ABS System Codes/Faults
Then Google the issue, or look at the shops data base, for
the proper way to diagnose.
To say entire system-- is just you not knowing what is going
on, or what your told,need to be more involved & ask
more questions & get people to show you & prove to you,
how they come to any conclusion or fix.
I found the B1342 code is used for different systems,
which is odd, & different vehicles,so be careful your looking
at the correct vehicle,application etc on the internet
At a shop with the scan tool your looking into the vehicles
system & can't get that wrong
Just know that codes do not mean a part failed
Component testing for failure is required
At very least do voltage drops on power & ground
side of any module, using a wiring diagram, before
throwing electronic parts at something & get it wrong

Your vehicle has a front heat / A/C an a rear auxiliary heat / A/C system . If heat or A/C isn't blowing from the front vents the blower motor could be bad or blower motor resistor . Video's on youtube showing how to test blower motor electrical circuit an how to replace .

Its good that the computer is not on fire. No spark could be the coil.
