Aux In Question and ACC Dim only on passenger side?

So this weekend, I went to do the aux in mod on the 9-5 radio but hooking up to the telephone circuit. Before all this, everything related to the radio and acc worked perfectly. The two problems I have are unrelated but I figured I'd post them in one thread:
1) After pulling the radio, I had to make a run to the hardware store and I noticed that the passenger side of the ACC was very dim. I saw a lot of threads on this but they all seem open ended as no one ever posts a solution lol. I was going to try bulbs although I doubt that's the problem. Has anyone figured out why this happens?
2) Upon reinstallation of the radio after the mod, I noticed that I'm getting left and right audio but only out of the left car speakers. In other words, my aux in connections for both left and right appear to be fine. It's just that it's only coming out of the left speakers. Hopefully, that makes sense to you guys.
The right speaker is just noise. CD's play on both sides still. I checked my connection on the board and I think they're fine but can anyone verify that the left speakers are the lowest arrow in this picture please? http://saabworld.net/attachments/f29...t-img_2388.jpg
I couldn't find anything that actually labeled which of the two was left or right, but in a lot of pictures, people use white wire on the lowest arrow and red on the one above it. Since red is commonly used for the right in other audio devices, I used that as my basis.

Has anyone got any ideas before I declare I fubar'ed the board somewhere?

It's too bad Hot Carl was such a ditz with the Audio Trolls. They are actually great little devices... if you could get him to build one for you.

This is where mine are. I didnt do the ground like the one you posted, I believe that is an 04-05 radio. Dont know if the ground makes a difference.

ACC sounds like a loose or dirty connection. There are 4 bulbs on the back of it, you sure one of them didnt just go bad?

Maybe I'll try not grounding it as an alternative. If that's an '04-'05 board, it looks pretty close to the one I'm using ('02 for those of you who don't know my car).

As for the ACC, it's acting weird. During the intial startup after plugging the ACC back in, it does a diagnostic run during which the LED text was very bright, but the backlighting was dim. After the diagnostic is done, the LED text becomes very dim just like the backlighting. It's possible the backlight is bad but why would the text on be bright one minute and dim the next?

Also, my parking assist has gone away mysteriously...not sure how that works. I'll have to search a bit more on this.
